Editors of Eat This, Not That! | Slide 1 of 13: Whether we all scream for ice cream or not, one thing's for certain: If you can eat dairy, you likely appreciate a scoop of the sweet stuff from time to time. You don't have to run out to your town's local ice cream shop to get a scoop or two, or, on the other end of the spectrum, buy an entire quart of ice cream from your grocer to satisfy your sweet fix.The happy medium between the two is the pint of your favorite ice cream flavor that you can easily find in any supermarket, which contains anywhere from three to four servings depending on the brand (even though a pint might seem like a personal size and leave you eating the whole thing).Of course, it's hard to have self-control and eat just one serving of the frozen treat, which is why it's not uncommon to demolish the entire container in just one sitting. For some brands though, eating an entire pint's worth can cost you an inordinate amount of calories, fat, and sugar. Yikes.Because we know it's hard to limit yourself to a single serving, we set out to find some of the unhealthiest ice cream pints from a handful of top-selling brands nationwide, so that you know exactly what you're committing to when you grab a spoon and crack open that container.Methodology: In order to identify the unhealthiest ice cream pints in America, we compiled a list of the most caloric pints of ice cream from seven well-known ice cream brands in the United States. We excluded exclusively local and regional ice cream brands to avoid providing context for a niche audience.We chose to showcase the top two most caloric pints of ice cream for the following brands: Ben & Jerry's, Häagen-Dazs, Magnum, Tillamook, and Coolhaus, as they each have multiple high-calorie ice cream flavors.
