Everybody loves a good holiday coffee drink but do you know what you are drinking?
How many calories are in that Eggnog Latte anyway? What about the yummy Gingerbread Latte, which is one of my favorites, over at Starbucks? It may surprise you to know that it is a whole meals worth. But do you care?
Holiday Coffee Drink by the Numbers
Let’s run the numbers just for fun.
First up on the holiday coffee drink list is the Eggnog Latte. It’s packed with all the good flavors and calories, about 470 of them. Of course that is the Grande size. Pssst, it’s the eggnog that does it. Oh but isn’t it yummy.
Second holiday coffee drink to make the list is the Gingerbread Latte. Amazingly enough, it only has 360 calories. Now I can go for this one, maybe two.
Here is the third on the list. It is the McCafé Caramel Hot Chocolate at McDonalds. Who cares how many calories are in this holiday coffee drink? Considering the source, how good can it be anyway?
There are others that made the list of the best and worst holiday coffee drink and if you want to see if your favorite made it, check out the full list on Yahoo.
What I Think
This is what I think about all those calories. Drinking just one of these coffee drinks won’t make you fat, nor will using low-fat milk make you skinny.
So don’t worry about the numbers. Just enjoy your favorite and the holiday season. After all, isn’t that what you are suppose to do?
I want to wish all of you a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
One last thought. Everybody loves a good holiday coffee drink whether it is from your local coffee shop or a major chain outlet.
