    America's unhealthiest drink

    America's unhealthiest drink is a 2000 calorie milkshake
    Laura Roberts
    26 May 2010

    A 2,000-calorie milkshake that is the equivalent of eating 68 rashers of bacon has been named the worst drink in America.


    The drink is sold in Marina Del Rey, California - where most local residents are known for their health conscious diets

    Just one drink equals the recommended daily total calorie intake for women and falls only just short of the 2,500 daily allowance for men.

    The Cold Stone PB&C is made with chocolate ice cream, milk and peanut butter. It contains 2,010 calories, 131 grams of fat - 68 grams of which is saturated - and 153 grams of sugar.

    It topped the Men's Health 20 Worst Drinks in America 2010 list, beating a McDonald's Triple Thick Chocolate Milkshake to the post.

    "In terms of saturated fat, drinking this Cold Stone catastrophe is like slurping up 68 strips of bacon," the magazine report found.

    "Health experts recommend capping your saturated fat intake at about 20 grams per day, yet this beverage packs more than three times that into a cup..."

    Jamie Oliver, the chef who recently made a television programme about tackling unhealthy eating habits in America, said: "There are no words."

    The drink is sold in Marina Del Rey, California - where most local residents are known for their health conscious diets - and is most popular with tourists.

    Christopher Fields, 45, from Hammond, Indiana, said: "It's delicious. I would definitely have it again."

    When told how many calories the drink contains he said: "I don't care.

    "I'd drink it without difficulty. I'd probably have it once a week."

    The Eat This, Not That Men's Health column claimed the second worst drink in America is the Peanut Power Plus Grape from Smoothie King. A large cup is worth roughly 1,500 calories.

    The McDonald's Triple Thick Chocolate Shake comes in third. A large cup of that is worth 1,160 calories or the equivalent of 13 McDonald's apple pies.

    Pretty awful, but all in all I'd say the worst culprit in the American diet is soft-drinks, and it is one that has been successfully exported to the rest of the world, unfortunately.

    It probably tastes damn good too and will not hurt you if you have one only occasionally. It's the crap we eat and drink every day such as fake orange juice with massive amounts of sugar that are really harmful.

    I don't think it's fair to label a drink as "worst" simply because it contains no actual bacon. Inferior, perhaps.

    Anyway, the worst drink in the world was invented by a friend and I: Red Bull and Wild Turkey. It is called "I'll have what the gentleman on the floor is having" aka "La fin du monde". It is an utterly ghastly concoction from the bowels of hell.



    Also, 'bacon' should become a standard unit of measurement for something.

    Talk about something that is bad for you
    Red Alert: Energy Drink Thickens Blood - Beverage may give you both wings and heart trouble
    (NEWSER) – Drinking Red Bull could lead to heart problems, the London Times reports. In a small study—30 Australian college students took part—downing even one can of the hypercaffeinated energy drink increased the risk of blot clots. In short, the young Red Bull enthusiasts developed a condition that resembled cardiovascular disease.

    “People who already have existing cardiovascular disease may want to talk to their physician before they drink Red Bull in future,” said the lead researcher. Red Bull has been linked to heart trouble before: a team of US researchers found last year that it may boost heart rates and blood pressure, and earlier this year a UK teen was hospitalized for heart palpitations after drinking eight cans.

    Yea I know, but I'm trying for quality, not quantity in my life. Bacon is another one of those delicious treats to be enjoyed on occasion. Everything that tastes good is bad for you.

    I wouldn't contemplate drinking something with that many calories unless it contained a huge amount of booze.

    One a month gives you the fat equivalent of three pieces of bacon a day, every day of the year.

    Whereas there is a Quebec beer called "La Fin du Monde" which is quite tasty and will also kick vous butt:
