Starbucks To Post Calorie Counts

Starbucks plans to begin posting calorie counts at its shops.


NEW YORK (June 4, 2013)—Seattle-based Starbucks says it will start posting calorie counts on menu boards nationwide next week, ahead of a federal regulation that would require the information.

Calorie counts on menus are already required in some parts of the country, including New York City, but starting June 25, Starbucks says customers at its more than 11,000 U.S. locations will be able to see that there are 300 calories in a small caramel Frappuccino and 230 calories in a small Iced Caffe Mocha.

Pastry cases will also show calorie information, in case customers want to opt for a Morning Bun at 350 calories instead of a blueberry scone at 460 calories.
