Count calories in that latte
Starbucks, the Seattle-based coffee chain, says it will post calorie counts on menu boards nationwide starting today, ahead of a federal regulation that would require it to do so.
Customers at its more than 10,000 U.S. locations will be able to see that there are 300 calories in a small Caramel Frappuccino, and 230 calories in a small Iced Caffe Mocha.
Pastry cases will also show calorie information, in case customers want to save some calories and opt for a Morning Bun (350 calories) instead of a blueberry scone (460 calories).
It also says there are numerous ways people can reduce the calories in their drinks, such as by asking for non-fat milk, sugar-free syrup or no whipped cream.
