Unhealthiest hot Starbucks drinks

Some of these beverages contain enough sugar to induce a diabetic coma in a Shetland pony.

Peppermint Mocha

Is this the best way to accomplish your New Year's resolutions? If your gym membership lapsed months ago, skip this dessert masquerading as caffeine: while high in Vitamin A, calcium, and iron, this sweet treat contains the same amount of saturated fat as a large serving of foie gras.

Chai Tea Latte

Brace yourself: while the Chai Tea Latte may sound healthful, it packs 340 calories — that’s more than a Taco Bell Beef Gordita Supreme — and although it is the least sweet option of all the items we're reviewing, it still contains as much sugar as two melted Snickers bars.

Caramel Flan Latte

To burn the calories you intake drinking one of these bad boys, you would need to spend an hour and fifteen minutes biking. This drink is the carbohydrate equivalent of 6 ½ slices of wheat bread.

Caramel Brulee Latte

A cup of coffee is like the Caramel Brulee Latte the same way my apartment is like the palace of Versailles. This prime example of end-of-the-empire decadence jams 580 calories, twenty grams of fat, and eighty-five grams of carbs into its scant twenty ounces.
