What’s in that drink?

Should have known better.

My normal Starbucks/Peaberry/Vic’s drink is a 12 ounce non-fat latte, pretty inocuous.

Yesterday I tried Starbucks’ new chocolate drink, the Chantico (why do they give things these weird names?). Tiny cup. Drink is apparently a melted bar of chocolate. I felt faintly ill after finishing it.

Today I went hunting for info. Are you sitting down? Here’s the nutritional analysis (straight from the source):

    Or just go get a Hardy’s bacon cheeseburger instead; less sugar!

    SIX grams of fiber?! Half a cup of canned kidney beans is only 5.66 grams. Wow. That’s a lotta fiber to get into a little cup. Just sayin’…
