Protein + sugar = Not healthy Starbucks drink

Nice try, Starbucks. Considering that 2.3g sugar = 1 sugar cube, there are the equivalent of almost 9 sugar cubes in this damn can of coffee. That cancels-out any benefits of the 20 grams of protein in my book.

Definitely not hypoglycemic-friendly or anyone-friendly.

    Thank you for shedding light on this. I love how they try to make things sound like they’re good for you, and Starbucks isn’t the only one. There’s so much sugar in so many of these “healthy” drinks.
