16. Oreo Shake with Whipped Topping (large)
> Chain: Jack in the Box
> Calories: 1,170

This chain’s “whipped topping” — made with fully hydrogenated palm kernel oil, sugar, and a bunch of things that end in “-ate” — is responsible for 110 calories of the 1170. (An equivalent quantity of real whipped cream would come in slightly higher, at 124 calories.)

17. Chocolate Shake with Whipped Topping (large)
> Chain: Jack in the Box
> Calories: 1,150

Get a smaller version of this shake — 16 ounces instead of 24 — and it’s a mere 800 calories.

18. Strawberry Shake with Whipped Topping
> Chain: Jack in the Box
> Calories: 1,120

Of the four varieties of shake on the Jack in the Box menu, each available in two sizes, the only one whose calorie count doesn’t exceed 700 is the smaller Vanilla Shake with Whipped Topping — and that’s 700 calories exactly.

19. Loaded Chocolate Cookies & Cream Shake
> Chain: Shake Shack
> Calories: 1,160

You know a chain with this name has got to be serious about shakes. Shake Shack lists 13 varieties (one size) on their nutritional chart, but only six on their menu. This is the biggest calorie bomb in both places.

20. Salted Caramel Shake
> Chain: Shake Shack
> Calories: 840

It’s not on the menu, but in the chain’s nutritional data, what would otherwise be the second-most-caloric shake isn’t this one, but something called the TKO’ Clock Chocolate Cookies and Cream Shake. If this is a reference to TKO Chocolate Cookies, as it appears to be, Shake Shack might have plans to move onto higher ground: That’s also the name of THC-laced edibles.
