The Worst Drink in America
You devil, you.

Men’s Health just unveiled The 20 Unhealthiest Drinks in America, including the worst beer, smoothie and energy drink. The beverage that bludgeons them all as The Worst Drink in America, however, is the Baskin-Robbins Heath Bar Shake. A large one packs 2,310 calories, 108 grams of fat (64 of which are saturated) and 266 grams of sugar. According to the article, that breaks down into:

73: The number of ingredients that go into this milkshake.

66: The number of teaspoons of sugar this drink contains.

11: The number of Heath Bars you would have to eat to equal the number of calories found in one Baskin Robbins Large Heath Bar Shake.

12: The average number of minutes it takes to consume this drink.

240: The number of minutes you’d need to spend on a treadmill, running at a moderate pace, to burn it off.

Locally, I’d like to nominate the fish bowl-sized Margaritas at Sadie’s,
los horchatas grandes at La Michoacana, Federico’s and Rincon Del Pollo (there’s about 30 grams of sugar per cup … ouch), the peanut butter milk shake at the Owl Cafe, and the avocado milkshakes from every Vietnamese restaurant in town (ingredients: avocados, sweetened condensed milk, whole milk, sugar, ice and what I fear is crystal meth). Albuquerque is brimming with fantastic ways to shave years off your lifespan; what’s your poison?
