Did you try out their fattening version and almost puke? Have you noticed that your belly has gained a couple of extra inches since you started to drink them? Well, you aren’t alone. Starbucks Frappachinos are making you fat, some believe so.
I’ve been traveling the country and have been to every city in our nation over 10,000 individuals and have been around 2000 plus Starbucks. Generally the comments start out like this. “Well I know, I shouldn’t be drinking these, they’re fattening as hell!” This is accompanied by a few pats on the gut. They all know it is the frappachinos that are doing it. Yet day after day they come to Starbucks and get their frappachino fix.
Having traveled to many stores and many on the main routes in larger cities you see the very same employees during each visit. On one visit they’re new and skinny, higher energy and looking very fit, then after a couple of months when you return to that place you see they’re getting chunky and after a while they’re down right fat, lost their perky attitude and somewhat negative. It’s a shame to see this, at first I thought the new less fattening frappachinos might be useful, but when I tasted one, yuk, I almost got sick to my stomach.
When patrons are requested at the counter if they would like to test the less fattening version, they frequently say as I have overheard in the long lines;”You know, I tried that, but I really did not like it, thanks anyway.”
If you feel that your frappachino tastes are making you fat, then you are probably correct.
