The Top Swap at Baskin-Robbins

Baskin-Robbins has a long tradition of carrying some of the worst frozen fare in the country. Sure, it shed its atrocious line of Premium Shakes, but it’s going to takea lot more downsizing to earn a higher grade from us. The Premium Sundae line averages 1,055 calories, and even the average small Fruit Blast Smoothie contains 71 grams of sugars. If not for the frozen yogurt and sherbet, this grade would be even worse.

Keep it simple at the scoop shop. Most BR flavors weigh in at fewer than 200 calories per scoop, so when you pile two of ’em on a 25-calorie cake cone, you get a classic American treat with a reasonable calorie load. Meanwhile, BR’s Premium sundaes come with a premium price of about 1,055 calories a pop.
