I love Starbucks' Mocha Frappuccino Light and Tazo Shaken Iced Tea (Unsweetened). They're delicious and guiltless.

This quiz freaked me out a bit. I had to go on the Starbucks' website &check it out for myself. :P 160z Nonfat, No Whip, Peppermint Mocha Twist: 290, 3.5g of fat. The Nonfat milk & no whip cream really helps. But I'll be switching back to my Nonfat Caramel Macchiatos. Less calories & fat grams. (I've learned that fat grams are just as important as the calories...fat's a harder to burn than calories. Especially when you have too many calories in your diet.)

Ew! Salted caramel hot chocolate?!? That sounds gross. I'll stick with my nonfat iced chai. My favorite!

I don't go to Starbucks often. But in Summer, I'm there almost everyday for Frapuccinos, and during Holiday times, I need to have a cup of their holidays drinks everyday to survive. I guess I do go to Starbucks often after all. I honestly don't like their crap quality coffee, but their coffee flavored milky drinks are so sinful and good.
1 /6 man . and i drink starbucks waaaaaaaay too much . today is most deff the last day for a while .

Save up your calories. Sometimes it's worth it. And it puts me in such a holiday mood!

I have this on my bookmarks at work: That way, if I am tempted, I either talk myself out of it, or research before I order!

I love the gingerbread latte. I am restricting myself to 2 a month because I suspect they are 500+ calories and I'm lactose intolerant!

I'm always a little leery of that 'how long you need to work out to burn off' thing - we need to eat to live and a little sugar in moderate amounts isn't the end of the world or the ticket to a size xxxxxxl. I think most of us know Starbucks yummy drinks are the equivalent of a donut or two and manage what we eat and treat it like a dessert, you know?

3/6. oh well. i LOVE the pumpkin spice latte and a friend told me the salted caramel thing was good, but i find that my usual once-a-weekend skinny vanilla latte is enough of a treat (and actually pretty low cal). i do think i'll need to go for at least 1 pumpkin spice this season...but i'll have to fit in an extra workout that day. i do always order with ff milk, so that should help, too.
