A List of the Unhealthiest Milkshakes in America, Calorie Counter Included

It’s important to eat healthy and exercise, but it’s equally as important to treat yourself from time to time to something deliciously unhealthy, otherwise a person could go mad with unfulfilled desire. The trick when indulging, however, is to not overdue it with a treat with a caloric value that would take a nonstop week of hitting the treadmill to cancel out.

So the next time you decide to treat yourself to a cold and frosty milkshake before finally bidding adieu to the sweltering summer heat, remember to avoid these ridiculously unhealthy shakes—unless you really only love having a summer body three months out of the year.
