Did you try out their less fattening version and almost puke? Have you noticed that your stomach has gained a few extra inches since you began to drink them? Well, you aren’t alone. Starbucks Frappachinos are making you fat, some believe so.
I have 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 that it is the frappachinos which are doing it. Yet day after day they come to Starbucks and get their frappachino fix.
Having traveled to a lot of stores and many on the main routes in bigger cities you find the same employees during each visit. On one visit they’re new and skinny, higher energy and looking quite fit, then after a few months when you return to that place you see they are 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 good, 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 often say as I’ve overheard from the long lines;”You know, I tried that, but I actually didn’t like it, thanks anyway.”
If you feel that your frappachino tastes are making you fat, then you are most likely correct.
