Fun with Starbucks Nutrition Information

It's winter, everyone looks forward to their first cup of coffee in the morning to warm up their innards. I personally can't stomach Starbucks drinks because the soy milk they use is too sweet and the other substances (either coffee or chai) are usually a bit skimped on. My sister and I would marvel over the frappucino, even if we wanted one we knew how OFF LIMITS it was because of the amount of junk inside. So here you go, my favorites on the nutritional list provided by Starbucks for you to NOT READ. Every drink is in the medium GRANDE size to make this easy and nicely relative.
#1 - The White Chocolate Mocha with soymilk - 370 calories, 9 fat grams, 62 carbs!
#2 - Strawberries and Creme Blended Creme - 440 calories, 2.5 fat grams, 92 carbs.
#3 - Double Chocolate Chip Creme - 450 calories, 9 grams of fat, 83 carbs.
#4 - Tazo Green Tea Creme - 420 calories, 5 grams of fat, 86 carbs.
#5 - Java Chip Frappucino - 370 calories, 9 grams of fat, 69 carbs.
#6 - Caramel Apple Cider - 300 calories, 0 grams of fat, 72 carbs.
#7 - Hot Chocolate - 300 calories, 7 grams of fat, 54 carbs.

Don't forget options -
Whipped Cream on a grande drink adds 100 calories, 9 grams of fat, 2 carbs.
Caramel topping adds on 15 calories, .5 grams of fat, 5 carbs.

The safest choices at the BUCK are the following:
Brewed Coffee, cappucino or lattes (tall sized), cafe americano.
