It is becoming a trend, where the iced coffees are “selling like hot cakes” in many coffee shops and franchises. Most people feel it’s OK to drink the iced coffees, especially in this sizzling hot summer!
However, cancer researchers have given warning to the public that some iced coffees tested contain as many calories as the McDonald’s big value meal!
The World Cancer Research Fund recently revealed that they have discovered that the Starbuck’s venti-sized Dark Berry Mocha Frappuccino contains 561 calories. This amount is more than a quarter of a normal woman’s daily caloric intake!
And even if you take away the whipped cream on the Frappuccino, it still has 457 calories. Since most of the iced coffees are a combination of sugar, full-fat milk, and cream, it’s not really what you might call a healthy beverage, especially for those of us who want to keep their body in fit shape.
