The most popular Starbucks Christmas drinks, ranked by calories
Starbucks is the creator of the OG seasonal drink, and its red cups are now iconic, signalling the start of Christmas for many.
Some of the festive favorites contain as many calories as a burger and three times the amount of sugar a woman is meant to consume on a daily basis.
Registered nutritionist Rhiannon Lambert told Insider it’s fine to consume drinks such as these in moderation, but you should avoid drinking them regularly.
Starbucks pointed out that its drinks can be customized to make them healthier.
