We have all heard of Baskin-Robbins, which is well known for their ice cream, more specifically their 31 flavors. The slogan gives the idea that a customer can have a different flavor of ice cream everyday for a full month. But have you ever wondered what else they have for sale? Baskin-Robbins sells ice cream cakes, ice cream scoops, ice cream by the pint, smoothies, shakes etc.
Not many people pay attention to the other desserts the chain sells since it is not as popular to order. However, the Oreo Shake has come to many people’s attention, and not for the better. The nutrition facts in this drink will blow many audiences away.
It is advised for women to consume about 2,000 calories a day and 2,500 for men. It is also well-considered to only take in 225-325 carbohydrates per day and 25-36 grams of sugar per day. The large Chocolate Oreo Shake has roughly 2,600 calories! That alone already surpasses the amount of calories a man or woman should have consumed per day. Not to mention there are 333 grams of carbohydrates and 263 grams of sugar. Having that much sugar and carbs can easily set someone for health problems without a doubt.
Many officials have called this the “worst food in America” and that drinking 3-4 sips of the shake was enough, considering that those sips were probably already 300-400 calories. Men’s Health declared that a Large Oreo Shake is the worst food/drink in the country.
There are still many, much healthier ways, to enjoy a dessert! If you still want a chocolate Oreo shake, then search up a recipe and replace it with healthier alternatives! The keto diet is a popular no carbs no sugar diet and many foods have been made to fit that specific diet. If a recipe requires sugar, look for a brand called Swerve. It is keto sugar! It is much better sticking to making your own food/dessert instead of the Oreo shake since sometimes the safest or healthiest food is the food you make!
