    Popular Summer Drinks Called Desserts in Disguise




    Aug. 9

    NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Cooling off with the frothy, sweet beverages sold at so many coffee and juice bars could undermine a
    person's summer diet, according to nutrition experts.

    Nutritionists at Tufts University in Boston, Massachusetts, say summer thirst quenchers like the Coffee Coolatta sold at Dunkin' Donuts
    and the Starbucks standby Tazoberry and Cream can supply a meal's worth of calories and more than a day's worth of saturated fat if
    consumers aren't careful.

    According to the editors of Tufts' Health & Nutrition Letter, plain old iced coffee poses no threat to the waistline. But when large doses of
    sugar, whole milk and cream enter the picture, these drinks should be considered desserts rather than beverages.

    Among the potential diet busters according to the August issue of the newsletter are: Dunkin' Donuts' Vanilla Bean Coolatta, which in a
    large-sized cup boasts about 880 calories and 30 grams of saturated fat--the artery-clogging kind; Starbucks' large Tazoberry and Cream,
    which weighs in at 750 calories and 22.5 grams of saturated fat; and Au Bon Pain's large-sized Frozen Mocha-Blast, which supplies 480
    calories and 3 grams of saturated fat.

    Juices can also pack a big calorie punch, albeit a fat-free one, the editors note. As some examples, they point to Fresh Samantha's
    15.2-ounce Mango Mama, which contains 260 calories, and Nantucket Nectars' 16-ounce Strawberry Orange Banana juice, a 310-calorie
    treat.

    But weight-conscious Americans need not choose between these summer thirst quenchers and their bikinis, according to the Tufts
    nutrition experts. They point out that asking for skim or low-fat milk can slash calories and fat from those frosty coffee drinks. And with any
    high-calorie beverage, drinking only a portion of the typically oversized servings is the way to go.

    The recommended serving size for juice is just 6 ounces, the experts note.

    Why add sugar, cream, fat,.... ?

    plain coffee is already
    and w/o calorie
    If you don't shut your fucking mouth, I will kill you.

    Sport, truth, like art, is in the eye of the beholder. You believe what you choose and I'll believe what I know.
    Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice;
    it is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.

    here's a related question...i always have my coffee black, with an equal, but i get the flavored kind (like hazelnut or french vanilla). i'm not talking about the flavor shots (syrups) that you add either.

    i never really thought about this until now...but is this bad for you? do i need to just stick to plain, unflavored coffee?

    I'm a coffee expert so I think I can help (I work at Starbucks....mwahahaha). First of all, I think you should buy regular Maxwell House crap and compare it to Starbucks coffee. You'll never drink Maxwell House crap again. Secondly, you can buy a one-liter bottle of Sugar-Free Vanilla syrup from Starbucks for $6.95 to flavor your coffee. Coffee beans are not grown with a natural vanilla or hazelnut flavor. Something has to be added, and I can only imagine that it's some sort of weird flavoring, possibly sugary, but at any rate, it's just not natural to have "hazelnut flavored coffee beans". If you want a coffee with a natural flavor, go for Kenya, which has a slight citrus flavor (comes from the berry that's on the outside of the bean) and eat it with a grapefruit, as they go very well together. If you want it dark, smoky, and intense, go for French Roast. Both are Starbucks brand. If you think that the coffee is too expensive for you ($10/lb), go to BJ's wholesale or Sam's Club Wholesale and pick up 2.5lbs French Roast for way cheaper than you'd get at the actual retail store.

    I've learned to drink mine black, as I appreciate coffee more now and can recognize it's distinct characteristics, much like fine wines and stuff. But just stay away from the flavored creams. Equal and a little half-and-half will work just fine.

    Ok well I hope this helped at least someone. No, I'm not an ad for Starbucks, I just love my job
