We see it every day, adults, and kids alike, drinking those delicious-looking frozen drinks from Starbucks with a name to the drink that requires a million words, like the Double Ristretto Venti Half-Soy Nonfat Decaf Organic Chocolate Brownie Iced Vanilla Double-Shot Gingerbread Frappuccino Extra Hot With Foam Whipped Cream Upside Down Double Blended (yes, that really is a drink), and think nothing of it. But what if you see someone scarfing down a bunch of donuts (3, 4 or even 5), or drinking 3 sodas, back-to-back-to-back, would you take a double take or look at them funny and even possibly judge them as if they where doing something so wrong. The truth is, you won't believe what's worse.
Recently at Starbucks, as I ordered my Medium Cafe Americano (yes I still call it by its size name, not by some fancy name that Starbucks came up with for small, medium or large), the person in front of me ordered a Venti Vanilla Frappuccino. Innocent enough. Think not. When I looked that drink up, it had a whopping near 90 grams of sugar. That's more then in five Shipley's Donuts, or three Cokes, or even eating 30 sugar packets like the ones you see at a restaurant tables. Yes, 30 sugar packets has about the same amount of sugar as that one Venti Vanilla Frappuccino.
Being that so many of us turned to these drinks not knowing exactly what's really in them, I explored more. The findings where scary. Find out what's in your Starbucks
So if next time you see me and I'm eating four donuts all in one sitting, while your drinking your little fancy-named drink from Starbucks, don't dare judge me, rather you better check yourself cause I'm probably eating something healthier then you!
