This is a pretty interesting way to look at how bad these drinks are for you.

Imho, anyone who ever thought those so-called "waters" were anything but another caloric beverage was in total delusion.

Isn't that just astounding?
Heck, I gave up my International Delight Chocolate Carmel creamer because
it was an extra 30g of fat I didn't need.... pales in comparison, huh?

Whew!.....when I saw this I was afraid that Wild Turkey was gonna be on this list.
As it turns out, I haven't had any of those with the exception of the shake from Macdonalds. I reckon I won't getting another one of those.

Dear me! that makes me nauseous just to think of that. That's more calories than most of us should have in a whole day!

I usually can't afford any of those drinks! The Sunkist orange and the McDonalds shake are the only ones I've ever had and I don't get them but maybe once or twice a year. It is amazing how many calories and fat are in some of those things though!

I'd like to see the person who wrote that try to "guzzle" that Sierra Nevada "Bigfoot" ale. That's a sipping beer, not one that is intended for "consuming mass quantities".
As with anything else, a treat once in a while won't really hurt. If you consumed things like that every day....well your an idiot and you probably wouldn't still be alive, or won't be for long

Probably not, but there are so many places that make MUCH better shakes and malts, with real ingredients. When I'm indulging, I want the BEST!
