Posted by Perry in Nutrition, Training Tips.

This post has been moved to the McDonald’s Ice Cream scam page at the new joggling site.

Please stop by the new site and read all about the controversy.

I actually might be running the Scotiabank half as a training run so I might see you there. If I don’t, I’ll definitely be down there to watch. I LOVE McDonalds ice cream. I usually get a strawberry sundae and not a cone though. Makes me wonder why the shakes are such fat filled calorie monsters when the ice cream is relatively healthy by comparison.

I’ve wondered the same thing; why on earth are the shakes so high in calories?

I think it’s primarily because the serving size is much bigger (32 oz versus 3.2 ounces) If you ate 10 ice cream cones, that would equal the same serving size as one large shake.

McDonald’s fries are like sponges to oil. If you open one and squeeze it you can see oil dripping down.

And that’s bad because?

I love McDonald’s ice cream too, but they seem huge, way more than 3.2 ounces or whatever the serving size is supposed to be. Maybe that’s why the CSPI measurement came back so high. I think you’re right, the serving size realy does depend on who is serving it.

I love to go to the McDonalds where they make the ice cream cones huge! I still kid myself into thinking it’s 150 calroies.

I doubt it, however even if it is, it tastes great so I’m gonna keep eating it. What’s wrong with paper pulp?
