Only 333 Grams of Carbs

So, folks who know me know that I try extremely hard not to judge others’ food choices. You want to eat carrots all the time? Go for it. Ice cream breakfast? You go. (I do not, however, truly say, “You go.”)

But I couldn’t help but cringe while reading about the large Baskin-Robbins Chocolate Oreo Shake. And you know I like Oreos. But this? Is ridiculous.

It looks like everything in the nutrition facts is a typo. 2600 calories. 38g of protein. 1770mg of sodium. And 333 freaking grams of carbs? Uh… wow.

I’m not sure, but I strongly suspect that making this same item at home would present a very different set of nutrition facts. Maybe that’s the way to go? Just sayin’.

2600 calories? Wow. Yes I could make a much nicer version here!

I AM pleased to see it doesn’t contain crustaceans, though.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
