I wish more people knew the truth about Starbucks. I worked at a chain coffee shop for several years, and sometimes it was all I could do not to ask people, "Are you serious?!?" when they ordered an extra-large blended drink with 3 kinds of mix-in powder, extra caramel sauce, and extra whipped cream -- often several times a week! For some reason, a lot of people don' t realize that those things are essentially a huge cup of ice cream. The only healthy options at a typical coffee shop are hot or iced tea (only artificial sweetener allowed), a skim latte with or without a sugar-free flavor shot, an americano, espresso, drip coffee or iced coffee with nothing added aside from artificial sweetener or skim milk. That's it! Everything else is horrible for you!
