NEW YORK -- There is a warning about the calorie count in some popular holiday drinks from Starbucks.
A British survey found a venti-sized caramel hot chocolate with whipped cream and oat milk at Starbucks contains the equivalent of 23 teaspoons of sugar and has 758 calories.
The same-sized holiday flavored latte has approximately 14 teaspoons of sugar and 523 calories.
By comparison, a 20-ounce soda generally contains 16 teaspoons of sugar.
Starbucks suggests that customers who are worried about sugar order smaller drinks, request skim milk, and skip the whipped cream.
