Virgin Happy Hour- Limited Time Only!

SO I just found out that Starbucks is currently doing a Frappuccino Happy Hour promotion - half price Frappuccinos every day from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. through May 16.

BONUS- Starbucks has recently made Frappuccinos more customizable for those of us who don't want 500 calories with our mid-afternoon icy caffeine treats. So if your liver needs a break from our traditional happy hour recommendations, and you can get off work before 5:00, head to your local Starbucks for a creamy, fatty, frozen treat.

IN OTHER NEWS we ventured to Nob Hill Bar and Grill for Happy Hour- Cinco de Mayo edition, but I promised MG I'd let him post on that experience. So, to MG- hurry it up already!


  1. In case anyone is curious, a venti White Chocolate Crème Frappuccino w/ whipped cream = 760 calories and 21 grams of fat while a venti Java Chip Frappuccino w/ whipped cream has 560 calories and 21 grams of fat.

    My personal choice, even without knowing this horrifying caloric content info, is a grande Espresso Frappuccino, which comes in with an acceptable 190 calories and 2.5 grams of fat.

  2. Without whipped cream, a lot of these drinks become more tolerable.

    At least calorically. Why anyone would want to drink one is another matter entirely :P

    (Actually, I quite like the green tea frappucino...but that's it!)
