Tasting 'America's unhealthiest drink' (USA! USA! USA!)

Presented in a giant 24 ounce cup the whole gloopy, gooey mess contains 2,010 calories, the total recommended daily allowance for a woman and only slightly fewer calories than are suggested for men, and is the equivalent of eating 68 rashers of bacon.

There are also 153 grams of sugar, the same as 30 chocolate chip cookies, which deliver an immediate buzz.

The recipe is simple - take several very large dollops of chocolate ice cream, throw in a hefty wedge of peanut butter, and some heavy cream, and blend.

The astronomical calorie count comes partly from the use of "super premium" ice cream which is defined as having more than 12 per cent butter-fat content.
