The Added Calories, Ingredients, and Cost of Starbucks Products 


If you are looking for an occasional expensive treat, Starbucks might hit the spot. However, if you want a regular energy boost to invigorate your day, going to Starbucks is not a great option for your health or your pocketbook. Sugar is the first ingredient in the various Starbucks syrups and saucesThe cheapest plain coffee on the menu is over $2.00 with 310 mg of caffeine.  

Energy Boosting Ingredients 

Caffeine is the only energy source in Starbucks’ products. Along with caffeine, Teacher Power Energy drinks incorporate B Vitamins to help enhance brain functioning and naturally boost energy metabolism from your diet. 

Overusing caffeine has its drawbacks. The FDA cites that 400 mg of daily caffeine doesn’t cause negative side-effects for most healthy individuals. Therare both benefits and concerns of using caffeine to boost your energy. 


Numerous Calorie Loaded Ingredients 

The more popular Starbucks products come with numerous ingredients, extra calories, and added sugar. We understand many individuals do not order a Grande at Starbucks. We used the Grande size in our comparison to keep serving size the same between Starbucks and Teacher Power products.  
Starbuck’s Tall (12 oz) Blonde Vanilla Latte has 200 calories, 27 grams of sugar, and 85 mg of caffeine. The Short (8 oz) Blonde Vanilla Latte has 130 calories, 17 grams of sugar, and 85 mg of caffeine. For individuals watching their calorie and sugar intake, Starbucks is not a great option. There are no calories or added sugar in Teacher Power’s Energy Drinks.
