Dear Leery of Lattes,
I hate to once again be the bearer of bad news (you'd think I'd be used to it by now), but Starbucks' seasonal beverages tend to be chock-full of fat, calories and carbs. Just how bad are they? Here's some helpful info for you (all nutritionals are for "grande" size): Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Creme Latte w/ Whip has 480 calories, 22g fat and 53 carbs, the Gingerbread Latte w/Whip has 430 calories, 22g of fat and 43 carbs, and the Eggnog Latte w/ Whip has 510 calories, 29g of fat and 43 carbs. Order these drinks with nonfat milk and no whipped cream, and you'll knock 'em down to 290 calories, 240 calories and 340 calories respectively. You'll also save tons of fat but honestly, the numbers still aren't great. There is one piece of good news I can give you. The Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino Light Blended Coffee (sans whipped cream) has just 190 calories, 1g of fat and 35 net carbs. If you want to sample one of Starbucks holiday treats, this is the way to go.
