Ice Ice Baby

The weather does seem to be fading slowly into August so I may have missed the boat a bit with this post. Despite the sun having disappeared, it is still very warm and very muggy and it has taken until now for me to discover just how refreshing an Iced Coffee is. The fact that my new job is 2 doors away from a Starbucks has meant I have spent an unnatural amount of money on coffee. Before I do any serious damage I decide to work out the points in all the lovely iced treats. I've decided to post the points for the best value ones available, and anything that includes whipped cream is really not worth it (a tall skinny caramel frappacino is 8pp with whipped cream and only 3pp without). Nutritional info is on all the websites, but this just gives you a taste of whats available!


Light Mocha Frappuccino (no whip):
Tall - 3pp      Grande - 4pp      Venti - 5pp

Light Coffee Frappuccino (no whip)
Tall - 2pp      Grande - 3pp       Venti - 4pp

Light Caramel Frappuccino (no whip):
Tall - 3pp      Grande - 5pp       Venti - 7pp

Strawberries & Cream Frappuccino (skimmed milk, with whip):
Tal - 8pp       Grande - 11pp      Venti - 12pp

(Nutritional information is based on low fat milk used)

Iced Caramel Late 12oz - 9pp
Strawberries & Cream 12oz - 6pp
Oreo 12oz - 12pp

Costa Coffee
(I found this had the best range of reasonable options)
