Does Starbucks Use Real Chocolate?

An Ingredient in Starbucks's New Drinks Might Not Be What You Think It Is

Starbucks is getting into the Valentine's Day spirit by offering festive new drinks including a Molten Chocolate Latte, a Molten Chocolate Frappuccino, and a Molten Hot Chocolate. All of these creations contain an ingredient the chain is referring to as "chocolatey chips," and Business Insider is reporting that it might not be real chocolate.

The questionable terminology could be a result of FDA regulations that forbid the use of words people commonly associate with little pieces of chocolate since the ingredient doesn't meet the minimum requirement of cocoa mass. While this news may be disheartening, if you're looking for the real deal, we've got you covered with these craveable healthy chocolate smoothie recipes.
