Starbuck's fabulous Dark Cherry Mocha .... admit it... you want it.

Oh yes you do. Really. You want it.
While this is not saying much, it is the best drink Starbucks has ever made. It lis like a liquid chocolate covered cherry. I had two today. It is the chocolate shavings on top that make this drink. They forgot the shavings on the second drink so I went back. There's an iced version as well. I'll get that soon.
What immediately jumps out from the link you posted above is that just one of these drinks has a whopping 45 PERCENT of the recommended daily allowance of saturated fat. Good lord!
So the two beverages you consumed contained almost a full day's worth, or (as just one random example) more than the saturated fat content of three bacon-topped BK Quad Stackers at Burger King.
Of course I want it.
How do you think it will stand up to MY favorite Java Chip Frappuccino?? That one has 60% of my daily saturated fat value. Guess I'm just gonna be saturated!
Tried one iced and it was a disappointment.
I think my barista may have been in training but there was barely any cherry flavor. She was led through it by another barista, but he didn't really check the amounts of syrup,etc. she was putting in.
My Java Chip Frapp is half the calories and way better IMHO. Should I try again?
