Regarding the "Unicorn Frappuccino", not sure if Starbucks in New Zealand sells this.

https://www.buzzfeed.com/sallytamarkin/starbucks-unicorn-frappuccino

"A grande Unicorn Frappuccino has 59 grams (or ~15 teaspoons~) of sugar. Let's put that into context.

* One 12-ounce can of Coca Cola has 39 grams of sugar.

* One Hershey's Milk Chocolate Bar has 24 grams of sugar.

* One Twinkie has 16.5 grams of sugar.

* One serving of Ben & Jerry's Brownie Batter Core ice cream has 27 grams of sugar.

* One serving of Frosted Flakes has 10 grams of sugar.

That's about one and a half times the maximum amount of added sugar that's recommended for your body per day."

From the same people who bring you coffees with a half a litre of milk in them.





When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.

Not sure why all the hate on this people give it.

 

It will be a limited time thing.

 

If you have it every day for that time, you are probably an idiot.

Is the purpose of this thread really just to point out how much sugar is in a Starbucks frappuccino?

 

Even their standard drinks are packed full of sugar.. its not exactly a secret.
