A year or so my friend told me about a new sensation at McDonald's. (she had to tell me about it because we NEVER go there!) I'm not going to mention any names but let's just say *she* got me hooked on a blessed mixture of chocolate, coffee, cream, and sugar topped with whipped cream and drizzled with a fudgy, oozy, chocolate sauce.... <drooling>mmmmmmm.....
Now I knew that they weren't good for me. They were definitely a special occasion thing... I told my mom that I didn't want to know the calorie content- I was going to get one today and was going to sip and enjoy it in ignorant bliss. I though that was that... Yeah, right.
Next thing I know I see her on her netbook with a horrified look on her face and she said, "You're right- you don't want to know!"
Turns out a small Mocha Frappe contains 450 calories and 20 grams of fat.
Medium: 560 Calories and 24 grams of fat.
Large: 680 Calories and 28 grams of fat.
I could spend 1/3 of my daily calorie intake on one drink?!?!?!?
Thanks, Momma.... you crushed me... now I have to go look at the nonfat selections...
(Actually seriously, thank you- helping me make wise decisions! ;) )
