Best & Worst Frappuccino at Starbucks

Frappuccino is the second worst F-word in our vocabulary—maybe even the worst, depending on your order.

Strabucks reached its most caloric peak yet with the addition of new Frappuccino flavors this summer, introduced as a way for the chain to say "Happy Birthday" to its 20-year-old blended friend. In light of the Frapp festivities—although we hate to be a buzzkill—we've translated the menu to find the best and worst Frappuccino. All nutrition information is calculated for a Grande drink (read: medium).

The S'mores Frappuccino lives up to its name with as much sugar as five scoops of Baskin Robbins S'More the Merrier Ice Cream, packed into a 16-ounce cup. Instead, go for the lighter version of the Frappuccino that started it all: a simple blend of ice, milk and coffee. Ordering a "Light" drink will automatically skip the whip, and save you about 130 calories, 11.5 grams of fat and 5 grams of sugar on any drink. Sprinkle cinnamon over your Coffee Light for natural flavor and sweetness, and get the skinny on all the Starbucks calorie-cutting lingo in the latest Eat This, Not That! book.
