The infographic you have to see before you go to Starbucks today

Mar 7, 2014 By Joey White 5

Would you eat a bag of Skittles for breakfast? If you order a Double Chocolaty Chip Frappuccino from Starbucks, you’re getting the same number of calories as you would in a sugary bag of 120 Skittles. How about a Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha? You’ll be appalled at how many cans of Coca-Cola that is.

Living in Seattle, the coffee capital of the world, Japanese writer and illustrator Ryoko Itawa loves coffee so much she started a blog called I Love Coffee. Needless to say, Itawa is keenly aware of the dessertification of her favorite drink.

In response, she created this infographic that’s equal parts amusing and sobering…

    What really needs to be included is a taste equivalency chart. For example:

    Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha = 3 drops of summer dew from the bosom of Aphrodite

    Black Coffee = A pile of week-old seagull droppings

      so someone finally admitted that it’s not the coffee they want or like the taste of, it’s the milk, sugar, fat, and flavorings.

      no wonder we have to invent devices for people to wipe their own asses when they can no longer reach e_e

        Absolutely – I want my coffee to be coffee flavored, no added milk/soy/sugar/weird flavors.

        Save the peppermint/almond/hazelnuts and add them to a chocolate candy bar if you must, but leave my coffee hot & black as the gods intended.

      I L’edOL at this. You’re wrong about the black coffee, but funny nonetheless. By the way, how weird of a word is “nonetheless”?

      1. zoe says:

        As an non-native english speaker, I have to say “nonetheless” sounds well and it’s also very descriptive in terms of what the word means! But maybe that’s because we use similar expressions in greek..
