    Default Baskin Robbins Death Shake has 2,300 calories

    Please, do not ever buy this 2,300 calorie shake from Baskin Robbins, which contains approximately half a pound of sugar. As Consumerist reader Doug points out,
    Last time I checked, an adult male should consume 2,500 calories a day, and this shake nearly meets that requirement! The saturated fat present in that shake is over 3 times the RDA of 20 grams, which will put you on the fast track for heart disease. Of course, that's if the Type 2 diabetes caused by all 266 grams of that sugar doesn't get you first.
    While I believe that people should be held responsible for what they consume, I think corporations need to share just a little responsibility too, and not sell piles of liquid sugar and fat like this. I'd be surprised if even 1 in 100 of the folks that consume that shake know just how bad it is.
    On the plus side, it does provide 120% of the RDA for calcium. Oh, and about 1600% of the RDA for Heath candy bars.

    266 grams of sugar? I've never seen anything reach triple digit sugar grams. I just calculated the Weight Watcher's points: 55. Wow. That's like all of your daily points and half of your weekly points for one shake.

    This is perfect for people like the cast of the new 90210, ellen pompeo, and all those other delusional celebs who would have us believe how hard it is for them to gain weight because, you know, they have such super duper fast metabolisms.

    Just a few of these per day and no problems, it tastes good too.
