If only.....

News recently is that a milkshake dubbed"worst drink in America" is the equivalent of eating 68 strips of bacon. Reality? Not quite, as those who know the luscious goodness of bacon know. Each strip of cooked bacon has, on average, 43 calories, 30 of which come from fat. Hence, the total from 68 strips of bacon would be 2924 calories, of which over 2000 calories come from at. However, the Cold Stone Creamery PB& C milkshake has a grand total of only 2010 calories and 68 grams of saturated fat.

So Cold Stone has done civilization a favor with, apparently, a delightful shake that will get a God-fearing man to Heaven more quickly, but they do not yet have the artery-hardening effects of 68 pieces of bacon matched yet.

Good job, Cold Stone!

  1. O.K. so maybe whoever did this study skewed the numbers slightly. (I'm not gonna do math), but let's just say you'd have to eat 50 strips of bacon. 50 strips of bacon 8" long would be eating a 400 inch long strip of bacon. That's alot of oinks! I know, sounds delicious to me too.
