As it says in the little 'About Me' over there on the left, this blog is about stuff I like. Frappuccinos - I like. More specifically Starbucks venti decaf caramel frappuccino double blended. And, of course, whipped cream, do they even have to ask? Every once in a while, there will be a story on the news about the calories in coffee drinks. The people the reporters talk to are completely shocked when they hear the numbers. They then say they are going to cut back, or make healthier choices. I think if they were concerned about calories in the first place, they probably knew what they were getting into. Or, actually, what was getting into them. And, if they didn't know, shame on the reporters. Sometimes ignorance is bliss. I looked up the numbers on my favorite drink, are you ready for this? 500 calories and 68 sugars. Wow. Now how am I supposed to enjoy it with those numbers in my head? A lighter version in a smaller size and no whip will cut everything in half. Good to know, but since I only get one about once a month anyway, then I will just consider it my splurge.
How about you? What's your favorite Starbucks drink? Not a coffee fan? What's your splurge?
