Another reason to steer clear of the omnipresent chain: A friend of mine just sent me this little caloric tidbit. After watching a gaggle of pre-teen boys chow down on a mid-afternoon snack of strawberry frappuccinos and egg, ham, and cheese sandwiches at a local Starbucks, she did this quick tally:
Frappuccinos=580 calories for a grande
Sandwich=500 calories for a ham, egg, and cheese.
So, that's 1,080 calories for an afternoon bite. Makes me wonder how many inches Starbucks has added to the American waistline. Anyone want to do that math?
