    Great post! We should be aware of what we eat and even drink. These drinks could look very enticing but see how much calories they contain.

    Yes, it is truly shocking. I recently was at Dairy Queen and wondered about the nutritional content of their newer MooLatte coffee drinks. I knew it wouldn’t be pretty.

    After investigating I also find out that the DQ drinks also contain soft serve ice cream, which just adds to the mess. Around or more than 600 calories for every drink! The new McDonald’s McCafe line of coffee drinks doesn’t contain ice cream and is a more sober 120-300 calorie range.

    I think I’ll stick to tea and plain coffee! Thanks for the link.
