The 5 Worst Drinks In America

Posted on July 23rd, by Foodio54 in General. 2 comments

Today I’m going to illuminate you on 5 drinks that you may have thought were bad….but had no idea they were this bad. Almost all of these drinks are worse for you than any sandwich you can order at McDonalds and what’s worse is that most people don’t consider these that bad. If you thought that Latte you were drinking was a “Skinny Latte” you might just find out that it has more fat in it than a Big Mac. So We’re going to start out this list with an American favorite Starbucks.

Runner Up

Starbucks Venti 2% Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha

660 Calories

22g fat (14 g saturated)

95 g Sugar

Any drink with this long of a name is bound to be bad for you. If it takes you two minutes to order your drink it will take you 2 hours to work it off.

Number 5

Baskin Robbins Pomegranate Banana Fruit Blast Smoothie

1,020 Calories

232 g Sugar

Smoothies are supposed to be healthy for you people! The second ingredient in this drink is sugar which makes you wonder how little fruit is actually in the drink. Why on earth would anyone order this!? You know why? Because it’s absolutely delicious isn’t it?

Number 4

Cosi Gigante Double OH! Arctic

1,033 Calories

35 g Fat

177 g Carbs

Only the Double Quarter Pounder with cheese has more fat in it. Do I really need to say more?

Number 3

Jamba Juice Peanut Butter Moo’d Power Smoothie

1,170 Calories

169 g Sugar

This is really more of a milkshake rather than a smoothie. This drink has more sugar in than 12 King Size 3 Musketeers bars. I’m pretty sure this is the drink that Oprah drinks when she magically gains 30 pounds.

Number 2

Baskin Robbins Large York Peppermint Pattie Shake

2,210 Calories

103 g Fat (57 g Saturated)

281 g Sugar

This drink is officially the most sugar saturated drink in America and probably the world. You would have to eat 9 Chocolate Frosted Donuts at Dunkin Donuts to equal the calories in this behemoth.

Number 1

And the Worst Drink in America is….

Baskin Robbins Large Heath Bar Shake

2,310 Calories

108 g Fat (64 g Saturated)

266 g Sugar

You just kind of need to stand back to appreciate this one. This drink is an entire days worth of calories, two days of fat, and enough sugar to jump-start Rosie Odonnell’s heart. There should be a health warning and an age restriction on this drink.
