Me!!!

I’ve been living out of the States for the last 3 years, and every fall when people start raving over them on facebook, I get so so so sad. But this year? Yippee!!! I can have as many as I want (calories be damned!)

😀

Just waiting for the weather to dip below 90, haha…

Ah yes, those delicious drinks that are PACKED with fat and calories!!!

I don’t drink those even though they are crazy delicious.  I wish they offered a sugar free version. 

A Grande has 380 calories and 13 grams of fat, 51 grams of carbs, and 49 grams of sugar.  If you take out the whip cream and change it to non-fat milk, you still are left with 260 calories, 50 grams of carbs, and 48 grams of sugar.

For comparison, a Grande Non-Fat Plain Latte (no flavor) with no Whip Cream is only 130 calories, 0 grams of fat, 19 grams of carbs, and 18 grams of sugar.

For the dieters — order a “short” (not listed on the SB menu but is standard).

For the non-dieters, I was at a Ghiradelli chocolate store this weekend.  They had these new milk chocolate squares that were filled with pumpkin spice caramel.  YUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!

@JeniRae: I tell myself the same thing when I find myself in line at Starbucks during this season dying for one.  Then, I choose the less calorie ridden drink and feel better.

To me, I would rather have a bic cupcake than spend my calories on a drink.

I love all things pumpkin. There is a reason autumn is the best season.

Anyone else have a weakness for Pumpkin Ale too?

My husband and I split one so that we feel better about the calorie intake (oh and no whip)…we only treat ourselves every once in a while.  Hold hands, walk around the outdoor mall and share our pumpkin latte.
