You might want to rethink your order!

The Sun says nutritionists are warning people not to drink too many Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Frappuccinos because they contain the equivalent of 17 teaspoons of sugar. One Pumpkin Spice Frappe has as much sugar as one-and-a-half McFlurries, five Krispy Kreme glazed donuts and two Mars Bars.

Nutritionist Holly Gabriel says, “Year on year we see drinks come to market with excessive levels of added sugar. Coffee chains should act more responsibly when people with obesity are significantly more likely to become seriously ill with Covid.

These seasonal products appeal to children and families and are a contributor to excessive free sugar consumption. Unless companies start to take sugar reduction seriously we will continue to see high levels of children and adults living with obesity, type 2 diabetes and tooth decay, all of which are entirely preventable.
