I have been seeing advertisements for McDonalds - oh sorry, "McCafe" - frozen strawberry lemonade. I see the commercials on my computer when I am watching TV. It played several times while I was watching a show last night and I just couldn't stop myself from Googling the drink name right then and there in order to get the calorie information.
It has 200 calories, which I think is a lot for a beverage. For example, it is 200 calories MORE than water or a diet soda. If you know how to choose and prepare food, 200 calories can take up a lot of space on a plate.
The other beverages that came up on the website were even worse! Take a look at this link. If you hover your mouse over the picture of a drink, the nutrient content info will appear in a little box. Some of the shakes have over 500 calories - yikes! The list does not include the word sugar, I wonder why, but does say carbs - which is the same thing in this regard. You will notice that they are very high in carbs!
