Worst: Ice cream sandwich

What’s better than two cookies sandwiching vanilla ice cream, especially when the cookies are chocolate chip? Well, actually, pretty much anything is better for you, because this treat usually packs nearly 500 calories and gets a whopping 60% of it’s melt-in-your mouth flavor from saturated fat.
