On Our Radar: The Starbucks S'mores Frappuccino

There's nothing better than a warm, ooey-gooey campfire s'more. And with just 134 calories and 12 grams of sugar, the treat is a relatively harmless indulgence.
On Our Radar: The Starbucks S'mores Frappuccino

But now that Starbucks has put their own spin on classic treat—and poured it into a cup—it's no longer such a diet-friendly pick.

The summer-inspired concoction is made with a blend of marshmallow-infused whipped cream, milk chocolate sauce, graham crackers, coffee, milk and ice. A grande made with whole milk and whip has 500 calories (the equivalent of nearly four s'mores), 20 grams of fat and 68 grams of sugar—that's what you'd find in 26 Hershey Kisses!

If you're serious about losing weight before bathing suit season, we suggest skipping the Frapp altogether. But if you really can't resist, order a tall made with skim milk and ask the barista to go light on the whipped cream. Better yet, split this lighted up order with a buddy. Doing so will save you up to 350 calories, 15 grams of fat and 48 grams of sugar! With some smart planning, you may have s'more "cheat meal" calories to play around with next time you want to indulge.
