Holy diabetes Batman!

Exposed - the unhealthiest drink in America. Baskin Robbin’s Large Heath Bar Shake (32 oz). Check out these figures:

2,310 calories
266 g sugar (100% daily value)
108 g fat (166% daily value)
of which 64 g is saturated fat (320% daily value)
295mg cholesterol (98% daily value)
1560mg sodium (65% daily value)

73 ingredients go into this milkshake. 66 teaspoons of sugar in this drink. 11 Heath Bars equals the number of calories found in one of these shakes. 8-12 minutes is how long it takes to consume this drink. 240 minutes is how long you’d need to spend on a treadmill to burn it off, running at a moderate pace.

On the good side, it does contain 120% of your calcium requirements. In case you have no idea, the average adult should be consuming 2000-2500 calories per day. So........... there's your day's calories right there in one drink. Is this responsible consumerism? Do we really need a 2310 calorie drink for sale? Is it any wonder the population is getting more obese?
