The popular coffee chain Starbucks releases an IG-worthy summer drink. Called the Tie-Dye Frappuccino, the drink reportedly tastes like banana candy. It would only be around for a limited amount of time.
The American Heart Association recommends that the average male human eat no more than nine teaspoons of added sugar (or 150 calories, or 36 grams) per day to stay healthy. Women should cap their daily amount at six teaspoons (or around 100 calories or 25 grams).
In contrast, a venti-sized Tie-Dye frappe has 75 grams of sugar, or three days’ worth, all in one pink-and-purple concoction. Sure, you could skip the glitter-covered whipped cream and cut that down to 71 grams of sugar, or order the relatively spartan tall-sized (read: small) version, but that still has 39 grams of sugar, which is still more than the average human should eat in a single day.
