Fight It: Carl's Jr. OrangeSicle Hand-Scooped Ice Cream Shake

The Carl's Jr. peeps are still going on and on about their "hand-scooped" shakes and malts. And we still don't get it. As far as we're concerned, shakes taste good whether the ice cream was hand-scooped, pumped from a machine, or purchased at a supermarket by a trained chimp. Are we alone here, people?! But wait -- don't answer that because it's not even important. What matters is this: The new Carl's Jr. OrangeSicle Hand-Scooped Ice Cream Shake has 700 calories and 33 grams of fat! Perhaps a better name for it would be the FatSicle Hand-Scooped Ice Cream Shake (CalorieSicle has too many syllables)! And by the way, if you make a mistake and order the MALT version of this "drink," that'll add 70 EXTRA calories to the frozen nightmare. Sooooo... Let's break this down. You can have FIVE Starbucks Orange Creme Frappuccino Light Blended Cremes for the SAME amount of calories as ONE OrangeSicle shake from Carl's Jr. Okay, our work here is done.
