A high-calorie, mega milkshake known as a “freakshake” is proving popular in the UK.
The milky creations first invented in Australia, combine ice cream, chocolate bars and entire slices of cake. Sounds tasty, but they include sugar, lots of sugar.
Currently, in the UK there is a debate about whether to ban these drinks.
For example, the Toby Carvery Unicorn Freakshake came top of an Action on Sugar survey. Their shake contains 39 sugar cubes, that’s 1,280 calories.
It’s over six times the amount of sugar recommended for seven to 10-year-olds.
