A shot of expresso with my lard, please

A 20-ounce Venti banana mocha Frappuccino with whipped cream contains 720 calories and 11 grams of saturated fat.

Like Ben and Jerry’s, who also have a progressive image, Starbuck’s products can be seriously unhealthy. That’s not coffee, it’s a fat and sugar bomb flavored with coffee. Clog your arteries while feeling trendy.

Me, I just order a cup of coffee. It’s healthier, cheaper, plus you get to taste the coffee too.

  1. Ordering straight coffee also confuses the counter attendants (oops, excuse me, I mean the “baristas”, which I guess means we should order coffee in Italian….) and irritates the yuppie scum who have mastered the odd lingo of Starbucks sizing.

    If there were any Truth in Advertising enforcement, Starbucks would be forced to label the Frappuccino as a coffee-flavored (barely) milkshake. Sounds less sophisticated, I guess.
