Restaurants are secretly making us fat, Part II

Okay, so yesterday I blogged about an expose a NY TV station did about extra calories being in some popular Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts treats. Today, I was running late, so I stopped at DD for an iced nonfat latte on my way back from the gym (fortunately, breakfast was ready and portable for my morning meetings). I ordered a medium, because that’s the size I get at Starbucks (yes, I AM a Starbucks snob, but it was out of the way given my time limitations today). I expected it would be the same.

Nope. A Starbucks medium (okay, “grande”) iced drink is 16oz. This was 24 oz. When they handed it to me, I actually gave it back and said, “I ordered a medium.” They said, “That IS a medium.”

Admittedly, I drank it all. It was decent. It was made with skim milk. And it was loaded with ice. I figured I got my two servings of dairy in today. BUT, I still wanted to find out the nutritional information, so I went to the DD website and got the following:

CHECK BACK SOON!

Annoying, but I suspect this is temporary and a response to the expose. Hopefully, they’re updating their nutritional information accurately.
