The Skinny Starbucks S’mores Frappuccino

starbucks-smores-frappuccinoEat This Not That

There’s nothing better than a warm, ooey-gooey campfire s’more. And with just 134 calories and 12 grams of sugar, the treat is a relatively harmless indulgence.

But now that Starbucks has put their own spin on classic treat—and poured it into a cup—it’s no longer such a diet-friendly pick. Yes, that’s right, starting Tuesday, April 28th, the coffee giant will be offering a S’mores Frappuccino for a limited time. The chain didn’t specify how long they plan to keep it around.

The chain also neglected to supply any official nutritional numbers for their summer-inspired concoction, but we do know that it’s made with a blend of marshmallow-infused whipped cream, milk chocolate sauce, graham crackers, coffee, milk and ice. A grande Cinnamon Dolce Frappuccino with whole milk and whip has 380 calories (the equivalent of three s’mores), 14 grams of fat and 58 grams of sugar (the equivalent of 22 Hershey Kisses), so we’re guessing this drink comes in around the same count.

If you’re serious about losing weight before bathing suit season, we suggest skipping the Frapp altogether. But if you really can’t resist, order a tall made with skim milk and ask the barista to use only half the standard amount of whipped cream. Better yet, split this lighted up order with a buddy. Doing so will save you 275 calories, 12 grams of fat and 38 grams of sugar! With some smart planning, you may have s’more “cheat meal” calories to play around with next time you want to indulge.

This Couple Says They Found The Rarest Beanie Baby At A Flea Market For $15


A couple in the U.K. could reportedly make thousands of dollars by selling a Beanie Baby they bought at a flea market for about $15.

Leah Rogers and Ryan Flanaghan were selling their own toys at the market in Bude, Cornwall, when they spotted the rare Princess Diana Beanie Baby being sold by another vendor, the Daily Mail reported.

The model is one of the rarest Beanie Babies produced. It was created in 1997 with the proceeds going to the Princess Diana of Wales Memorial Foundation.

Flanaghan said he recognized the toy’s worth because he used to collect Beanie Babies.

When the couple got home, they realized the bear was even more valuable than they thought.

They verified that the bear was a first-edition bear, which can be sold for thousands of dollars on eBay.

One similar bear is currently listed for $375,000. However, the couple listed theirs at a starting price of approximately $30,000, according to the Daily Mail.

The couple said they hope to earn a significant amount of money from the sale to put toward their first home.

“We couldn’t believe it. We picked it up for £10 and it could be worth tens of thousands,” Rogers said.
