  1. Wow I do not know which is worse, a smoothie with over 1,000 cals in it or ice tea with 200. Those are both evil.

  2. Yep, read this on Yahoo the other day. That Baskin Robbins one is a stunner. It would make me sick for sure.

  3. Too bad they are so popular. Seems everyone thinks it’s “ok” or “less evil” if it’s not soda.
