THE WORST DRINK IN AMERICA
Men’s Health Magazine has spoken and named the worst drink in America. Oh it certainly doesn’t taste bad — it’s just utterly horrible for you. Toping the list of the 20 unhealthiest drinks available in the U.S. is one of Cold Stone Creamery’s new ice cream shakes.
The ice cream company’s peanut butter and chocolate milk shake packs the equivalent of 68 strips of bacon in saturated fat and an astounding 2,010 calories! On the plus side, a 16-ounce PB and C shake delivers 60 per cent of a person’s daily requirement of Vitamin A, 80 per cent of the daily dose of calcium, 15 per cent of the iron and 8 per cent of the fiber. But the saturated fat content is nearly three times what anyone should eat in a day. But, substituting “Sinless Sweet Cream” for ice cream in any make-it-yourself dessert will cut 57 per cent of the calories and all of the fat, said spokeswoman Jami Thompson. Likewise, ladling blueberries rather than Reese’s Peanut Butter cups into the ice cream will eliminate 180 calories. (Health Zone California)
