So how much sugar is really in my latte?

I love coffee!  Did I mention that I absolutely love coffee?  My day does not begin until my keurig is done brewing.  During my work week I make daily trips to our local coffee shop with coworkers and enjoy every last sip.  One thing I do notice when purchasing my brewed coffee, which I simply sweeten with stevia and a splash of half and half, is all the fancy dessert sounding drinks everyone around me is ordering (Birthday cake latte, pumpkin spice latte, caramel mocha latte, etc.) Before judging them and the size of their ass, I remind myself that they probably don’t realize that they are drinking well over 300 calories and approximately 50 grams of sugar.  Yeah, that is why they are ordering those drinks, they simply don’t know any better.  Well, you are in luck because my son Bryson and I made a quick video to actually show you what you are drinking.  Enjoy!

  1. It’s so crazy to think that the food industry can sell so much delicious “junk”. I once ordered those drinks until realizing how much added sugar and other stuff is in them. Great post to bring deeper awareness! Kudos to you and your son 🙂
