Thin Mint Blizzard’s far from thin

An Article in the USA Today Newspaper recently:

“Thin Mint Blizzard’s far from thin”

“According to the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI), a large Thin Mint Cookie Blizzard contains more than 1,000 calories, a day’s worth of saturated fat and 31 teaspoons of sugar. CSPI says its like drinking two Big Mac’s.
Based on a calculation of a whole box of the mint cookies that the Girl Scouts sells: Eating an entire large thin mint cookie blizzard nearly equals eating a whole box of thin mints, which tops out at about 1,350 calories and two days’ worth of saturated fat”
