I did a basic thing today and bought a Witch's Brew Frappuccino at Starbucks. Just because I threw it away unfinished does NOT mean I did not like it. I liked so much, I had to toss it for my own good.

The drink itself has a orange creme flavor and contains 'bat warts' (chia seeds) and 'lizard scales' (vanilla whipped cream and green powder dust). The problem I have with the drink is with the amount of sugar in it. I ordered a small. I am told that a 'small' in Starbucks speak means large. According to the large size there is 35 grams of sugar in the brew. If you order a grande - you are sucking down 53 grams of sugar. That is why I tossed my drink.

Tony LaBrie thinks I am nuts because of the fact that I will suck down tequila shots like crazy, but would not finish my Starbucks Witch's Brew. The answer is simple - there is no sugar in tequila. Duh. Plus tequila makes me feel happy. This drink makes me feel guilty. I wonder if I have my priorities backwards?

On a scale of 1 to 10, I give the Starbucks Witch's Brew a 10. I give tequila an 11.
