Ask anyone who loves coffee and desserts what coffee drink tastes more like a treat than coffee and they’ll tell you it’s the frappuccino. With many options out there, which one is the best?
Out of my own curiosity, I decided to investigate. I checked out the nutrition of caramel frappuccinos/frappes at Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, Dairy Queen and McDonald’s, and here is what I found.
16 oz. Caramel Frappuccino from Starbucks:
16 oz. McCafe Frappe Caramel from McDonald’s:
22 g fat
16 oz. Frozen Caramel Coffee Coolatta from Dunkin Donuts:
16 oz. Caramel Moolatte from Dairy Queen:
If you’re looking for the healthier option (and I mean in comparison to the other options), go for the Frozen Caramel Coffee Coolatta from Dunkin Donuts. It has the least calories and fat.
But if you thought frappuccinos were more of a coffee drink than a treat, think again. The calorie count on these frozen coffee confections are close to that of a meal.
