Starbucks Caramel Brulée Latte
PER SERVING (one 16-oz./Grande drink with 2% milk and whipped cream): 420 calories, 15g fat, 200mg sodium, 66g carbs, 0g fiber, 48g sugars, 8g protein
Starbucks…tut, tut. You release some new super-sugary drink into the world, and we have to warn everyone how crazy high in calories it is. Even a demure 12-oz./Tall drink made with nonfat milk and no whip has 240 calories, due in part to all that sugar! A standard Grande with 2% milk and whipped cream has more calories than a Burger King Buck Double. Does sipping the caloric equivalent of a two-patty cheeseburger first thing in the morning sound like a smart idea? Nope.
Panera Bread Peppermint Hot Chocolate
PER SERVING (1 beverage): 610 calories, 17g fat, 180mg sodium, 102g carbs, 0g fiber, 83g sugars, 11g protein
Panera peeps are stepping into sugary hot beverage territory. The fact that this sweet stuff has more calories than the chain’s steak chili with cornbread is LAME. You are not a meal; you are hot cocoa! Add a bit of peppermint extract or sugar-free peppermint-flavored syrup to your own hot chocolate made from a 25-calorie hot cocoa packet, and you’ll be WAY better off.
