Health advocates announce Xtreme Eating Awards

July 21, 2011|By Richard Gorelick | The Baltimore Sun

The Center for the Science in the Public Interest, which has done more good for the health of Americans than its legion of detractors has released its annual Xtreme Eating Awards, the most egregious items on chain menus.

Here's what they say about the Cold Stone Creamery PB&C Shake:

Even people accustomed to 1,500-calorie burgers wouldn’t expect 2,000-calorie shakes. A 24-oz. “Gotta Have It” size shake of peanut butter, chocolate ice cream and milk has a day’s calories (2,010) and three and a half days’ worth of saturated fat (68 grams). Cold Stone’s Web site says, without a whiff of irony, “Your Health – Just as Important as Taste.” One large Cold Stone Creamery PB&C Shake is like drinking two 16-oz. T-bone steaks plus a buttered baked potato.
