Starbucks to Post Calorie Counts

Your relationship with Starbucks is about to become a lot more intimate. The FDA has been planning to lay out national rules requiring chain restaurants to label their products with calorie counts for years, but in the meantime Starbucks is taking matters into its own hands and doing it now. And while you may not want to know that your favorite morning blueberry scone actually has 460 calories—a quarter of most women’s ideal daily intake—Starbucks is actually doing you a favor. Now, with the numbers staring you in the face, you’ll finally be motivated to make the long overdue switch from that 260-calorie caffè mocha to the 15-calorie Americano.
