20 Worst Drinks in America – #11
#11 Starbucks Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha with Whipped Cream (venti, 20 fl oz)
Hopefully this will dispel any lingering fragments of the“health halo” that still exists in coffee shops—that misguidedbelief that espresso-based beverages can’t do much damage. In this 20-ounce cup, Starbucks manages to pack in more calories and saturated fat than two slices of deepdish sausage and pepperoni pizza from Domino’s. That makes it the equivalent of dinner and dessert disguised as a cup of coffee. If you want a treat, look to Starbucks’ supplyof sugar-free syrups; if you want a caffeine buzz, stick to the regular joe, an Americano, or a cappuccino.
