you sure you want that starbucks, milkshake, energy drink...?

nothing new or interesting to post about my life today, but a few weeks ago i got an email from my mom (well, a forward, but whatev)-the 20 worst drinks in america...some are here in canada too, but a lot i had never heard of. quite the eye opener. and really disgusting. i'll show you a few just to give you an idea. are you ready? you should be able to enlarge each photo since you probably won't be able to read it without doing so. it was in some weird format and i couldn't figure out how to crop each one down to just the picture...

 


i can't believe any of them really, but the cold stones shake?! 2000 calories?!? it's like 68 strips of bacon?! o.m.g. i will never get that. i'm sure it's delicious, but it's just not worth it. i hope this didn't ruin starbucks for anyone! i'll still drink it, obviously. i've never had the white mocha pictured, but i have gotten the bottled frap a few times (they're cheap at walmart! haha), so that's a little disappointing.

was this a good way to start a monday or what?!

Omg that is crazy! I've never really thought that much about smoothie calories. Smoothies just seem autocratically healthy! I'll have to be on the lookout for these now.

Ewww that is really gross!! It definitely makes you think though! I will still go to Starbucks, etc, too but I just try and order a smaller size (I don't think I could ever drink a Venti anyway - too much!) and get no whip, skim milk and that helps lower the calories. I only get those really sugary drinks once in awhile anyway, and that's ok. One or two won't kill you, but definitely not good to have often! Yuck!

Oh I still love coldstone creamery. But I can't drink a whole shake even if I wanted to (and the pb & c is SO GOOD). They are just too rich. I only get them on very rare occasions though. That's my justification.

I breathed a sigh of relief when I realised I've never had any of these. Thank God! These are gross!

that is crazy! It's not a surprise that all of those are bad for you, but jeez I never knew they would be 2,000 calorie bad!!!

Good thing I don't drink any of those!!! Well sometimes a Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha, BUT It is always a Tall!!! Everything in moderation right?

I'm just happy that this wasn't a buzz kill for any of my skinny latte faves!! *phew*

Most of those are soooo gross though - however i like a lot of the comparisons. Would you like this drink? Or would you like a bazilion Oreos? LOL

Ohhh noooo!!! When i see articles like this one, I run and hide... I don't want to know the truth! But really, it is important - i can't imagine drinking that McDonald's milkshake... I know Starbucks drinks have lots of hidden calories, so i always (try) to opt for the non fat and no whipped cream :)

this just made me WANT a shake. wasn't it supposed to do the opposite?
