Unhealthy Desserts

Who doesn’t love dessert? I am the type of person that would rather eat dessert before dinner, eat dinner, and then eat dessert again. I am also a cake lover. I’m not here today to talk about cake. I am here to talk about some unhealthy desserts. Dessert should be something you enjoy not stress about calories or sugar. After reading this you can enjoy a little bit more.

Talenti Coconut Almond Chocolate Gelato

2/3 CUP: 360 calories, 21 g fat (12 g saturated fat), 95 mg sodium, 40 g carbs (4 g fiber, 35 g sugar), 6 g protein

 Whether you’re trying to slim down before a tropical escape or looking for some comfort food on the couch, this caloric pint shouldn’t be your pick.

340 calories, 12 g fat (7 g saturated fat), 245 mg sodium, 55 g carbs (0 g fiber, 32 g sugar), 3 g protein


Two desserts, Mrs. Fields cookies, and ice cream come together to create a 340-calorie dessert disaster. This dessert carries nearly four slices of white bread worth of carbs and 8.5 teaspoons worth of sugar.

M&M’S Cookie Sandwiches With Vanilla Ice Cream

240 calories, 10 g fat (6 g saturated fat), 150 mg sodium, 37 g carbs (<1 g fiber, 25 g sugar), 3 g protein

Would you spoon over six teaspoons of sugar into your mouth for dessert? That’s what you’ll find in this M&M’s cookie ice cream sandwich.

Blue Bunny Load’d Sundae Bunny Tracks

PER UNIT (185 G): 600 calories, 32 g fat (17 g saturated fat), 250 mg sodium, 70 g carbs (3 g fiber, 60 g sugar), 9 g protein

Blue Bunny manages to pack in a meal’s worth of calories and more than two days’ worth of added sugars. Instead, reach for Blue Bunny’s Caramel Mini Swirls. They’re similar to King Cones you grew up with but come in a smaller portion with a hint of caramel—clocking in at just 140 calories and 12 grams of sugar.

Talenti Hazelnut Chocolate Chip Gelato

2/3 CUP: 330 calories, 19 g fat (8 g saturated fat), 55 mg sodium, 36 g carbs (1 g fiber, 34 g sugar), 6 g protein

Nutella meets your favorite cookie in this ultra-creamy gelato. But do you think it’s worth 330 calories and 8.5 teaspoons worth of sugar? We think not.

Haagen Dazs Dulce de Leche Cookie Squares

PER BAR: 310 calories, 18 g fat (13 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 120 mg sodium, 34 g carbs (1 g fiber, 26 g sugar), 4 g protein

You’ll find a full day’s worth of saturated fat and sugar in these dulce de leche ice cream squares. If you want something cold and swirled with caramel, go for Enlightened’s sea salt caramel bar, which contains just 80 calories, 1.5 grams of fat, and 5 grams of sugar—not to mention, 7 grams of muscle-maintaining protein!

Ben & Jerry’s Peanut Butter Cup

⅔ CUP: 470 calories, 33 g fat (18 g saturated fat, 0.5 g trans fat), 180 mg sodium, 36 mg carbs (0 g fiber, 32 g sugar), 9 g protein

Ben & Jerry’s PB ice cream packs in a whopping 32 grams of sugar and absolutely no fiber to help stabilize your blood sugar levels. Go for Halo Top’s Peanut Butter Cup ice cream instead, which contains just 380 calories for the whole pint versus Ben & Jerry’s 1,400!

Talenti Peanut Butter Fudge Sorbetto

⅔ CUP: 350 calories, 17 g fat (4 g saturated fat), 250 mg sodium, 46 g carbs (3 g fiber, 39 g sugar), 8 g protein

Just because it’s dairy-free doesn’t mean it will help you keep your weight in check. Talenti manages to swell its sorbetto with 9.75 teaspoons of sugar!

Ben & Jerry’s Chubby Hubby

½ CUP: 350 calories, 21 g fat (11 g saturated fat), 160 mg sodium, 33 mg carbs (1 g fiber, 26 g sugar), 7 g protein

Vanilla malt ice cream meets peanut and fudge-covered pretzels and fudgy peanut swirls in this caloric pint. The outcome?

Tillamook’s Double Nutty Peanut Butter Ice Cream

⅓ PINT: 460 calories, 34 g fat (12 g saturated fat), 250 mg sodium, 31 mg carbs (2 g fiber, 27 g sugar), 11 g protein

With your full day’s worth of heart-harming saturated fat and 90 more milligrams of sodium than a small order of McDonald’s fries, you’re better off skipping this pint and indulging in Enlightened instead.

Häagen-Dazs Peanut Butter Salted Fudge Ice Cream

½ CUP: 340 calories, 23 g fat (11 g saturated fat, 0.5 g trans fat), 150 mg sodium, 26 mg carbs (1 g fiber, 24 g sugar), 6 g protein

Peanut butter can be wonderful weight-loss food, but it happens to sabotage every ice cream pint on this list of unhealthiest desserts. Häagen-Dazs adds 24 grams of sugar per serving to its pint, and it also boasts a seriously high-fat content.

Magnum’s Double Caramel Bar

1 BAR: 270 calories, 17 g fat (12 g saturated fat), 75 mg sodium, 29 g carbs (1 g fiber, 25 g sugar), 3 g protein

This double caramel ice cream bar by Magnum is the ultimate treat: it’s filled with luscious caramel and gooey chocolatey coating, and then smothered in a cracking milk chocolate shell for both creamy and crunchy textures. Indulging in this frozen dessert will set you back 270 calories and 17 grams of fat. Go for Magnum’s mini version instead.

Magnum Ice Cream, Dark Chocolate Raspberry

⅔ CUP: 340 calories, 24 g fat (15 g saturated fat), 30 mg sodium, 35 g carbs (4 g fiber, 26 g sugar), 5 g protein

If you think you’re making the smart choice by choosing a fruity ice cream, think again. Magnum manages to pack in 26 grams of sugar and 15 grams of heart-harming saturated fat into this raspberry chocolate tub. Down the whole pint, and you’ll ingest a staggering 960 calories, 42 grams of saturated fat, 1.5 grams of trans fat, and 72 grams of sugar!
