Can you guess what the six most fattening ice cream flavors are? Newsweek did better than guess. In a recent issue, it researched which flavors are the fattiest. We sampled the top six in the "Good Morning America" studio. For a half-cup serving, according to Newsweek, here's a rundown of the heaviest contenders. We have added comments from the companies that produce them -- defending and embracing their delicious products:
1)Häagen-Dazs Chocolate Peanut Butter
(360 calories, 24 grams of fat)
"Häagen-Dazs offers a full range of products for everyone -- from the superpremium Häagen-Dazs Reserve Series, made from rare and exotic ingredients, to luxurious snack-size bars and the delicious "better for you" options of Häagen-Dazs Sorbet, Frozen Yogurt and Extra Rich Light ice cream, half the fat, but the same rich, creamy taste of the original."
2) Ben & Jerry's Chubby Hubby
(330 calories, 20 grams of fat)
"As Stephen Colbert, the flavor namesake of AmeriCone Dream, would say in this case (although he also says it about history): 'Let's let the market decide!' No matter how many 'low,' 'light' and 'less' products we try to come up with, they never become our best sellers! People still want Ben & Jerry's to be the funkiest, chunkiest and best-tasting ice cream around."
