These 10 Baskin-Robbins Drinks are Loaded with Sugar

If you have ever visited Baskin-Robbins, you know that they offer more than just 31 ice cream flavors. Along with ice cream, they also serve a variety of coffee drinks, milkshakes, and smoothies. However, many of these drinks are high in sugar, and consuming them excessively can negatively impact your health.

We have researched and identified the most sugary drinks available at Baskin-Robbins, which you should avoid if you are concerned about your sugar intake. Knowing the sugar amounts in these drinks can help you make informed choices if you strive for a balanced diet and a healthier lifestyle.

How Much Sugar Should You Consume Each Day?

This question is a difficult one to answer accurately since everyone's recommended amount of sugar consumption varies. According to the American Heart Association, men should limit their sugar intake to 150 calories per day, which is equivalent to around nine teaspoons or 37.5 grams. Women, on the other hand, should aim for no more than 100 calories per day, which is equal to approximately six teaspoons or 25 grams.

Unfortunately, most people consume more sugar than the daily recommended amount. The data suggests that the average person consumes over twice the recommended daily sugar intake. In numbers, this means the average person's sugar intake is 76.7 grams per day, which is equal to 19 teaspoons or 306 calories. Consuming too much sugar can cause various health issues like tooth decay, heart disease, diabetes, and obesity, among others. So, here are 10 Baskin-Robbins drinks that should be avoided altogether or only enjoyed occasionally.

This milkshake, with its vanilla-flavored chocolate chip ice cream and cookie dough chunks, sounds delicious. However, it contains over 3/4 cup of sugar. This milkshake often appears on lists of the most unhealthy items to order at Baskin-Robbins. With 1,520 calories and 47g of saturated fat, this drink should be avoided altogether or enjoyed only on rare occasions.

This milkshake is a meal in a cup, considering it has 2,600 calories, 135g of fat (59g of saturated fat), 263g of sugar, and 1,700 mg of sodium. Additionally, it has appeared in Men's Health magazine's list of the unhealthiest drinks in America. Taste-wise, it is not the best either; the texture is grainy, more akin to a protein shake, which would be a healthier choice.

Another Baskin-Robbins drink that Men's Health magazine once voted as the unhealthiest drink in America is the Heath Bar Milkshake. This milkshake received this honor due to its incredibly high sugar and calorie content. How bad can it be? This milkshake contains an alarming sixty-six teaspoons of sugar, 2,310 calories, and 108 grams of fat, all in just one serving. For these reasons, we highly recommend avoiding it or only enjoying it on the rare occasion.

Final Thoughts

In fact, two of the drinks on our list have been labeled as the unhealthiest drinks in America by Men's Health magazine. Most of these beverages are also packed with excessive amounts of carbohydrates and fat. Knowing the sugar content of your drinks is a great way to ensure that you do not cause long-term damage to your health.
