yeah! I love frappes as well, but not worth it! pricey, calorie, fat & sugar laden!

Wow! That would be more than a bit mind-blowing to indulge in a "freebie" like that only to discover those ingredient / nutrition numbers.

I haven't ordered anything other than straight dark roast from a coffee shop in years (it's what I have at home, too), and am not a huge fan of really sweet stuff, so I just did a quick calculation of what would be my home-made version of a "mocha frap" (based on my version of the "Bulletproof" coffee popular with keto followers):

16 oz of dark roast coffee
1 oz of heavy whipping cream
1 TBSP of MCT oil (or salted butter)
2 TBSP of unsweetened cacao or cocoa powder
all whipped together..

Not something that I would want to have every day, but definitely can fit in as an occasional treat --- without O.D.ing on sugar!

I have worked at both Starbuck's and Caribou. Honestly, I hate the blended beverages, mostly because I made a million of them a day during the summer months. They're noisy to make.

If you really want one, getting a small or tall isn't too rough. You can also get no or less whip.

I used to get the frappucinos until I read the nutrition label.

Now I get iced coffee with room cream and sugar. That way I can add my own cream and sugar.

On a rare day I might still get the frappucino, but I realize it comes with a price.

This is a unicorn frappacino. It was a big HIT at Starbucks last year.



Some of my co-workers stood in line to get one.

You can read the nutrition label.



For a 16 oz serving, it has 410 calories. not bad, right ? umm... it has 59 GRAMS of sugar !!

59 grams of sugar = 14.75 teaspoons of sugar.

People don't think about how much sugar is in these coffee concoctions. that's why they are so addictive. One glazed donut Krispy Kreme donut has 10 grams of sugar. One Dunkin Donut glazed donut has 12grams of sugar.

That unicorn frappaccino had the equivalent sugar amount of 5-6 donuts !!!

I'm not a coffee drinker, but years ago I would drink those bottled Starbucks frapps that they sell at the grocery...until I read the nutrition label past just the calorie info.

Had a coupon for a free one. $5.00 drink. After having about half, I decided to stop and check nutrients. Loaded with sugar and carbs. This was a custom made mocha. Wondering why these drinks are selling so well!!!
