Welcome to creamy, frothy, holiday drink season. Nothing like blustery temperatures to switch your alliance with coffee and cream to a pumpkin-flavored latte, mocha with whip, hot chocolate with extra marshmallows. But we all know those drinks add up calorie-wise, and you need to bank all the calories you can for the three or four holiday parties that truly matter during the next six-weeks indulgence.
No sense in diving into peppermint mochas until the hot pumpkin drink crave is satisfied. America supposedly runs on Dunkin' -- so how many calories in a Dunkin' Donuts medium Pumpkin Latte?
A medium Dunkin' Donuts Pumpkin Latte has 330 calories, 9 grams of fat and a major sugar infusion -- 51 grams of sugary carbs, which includes some high fructose corn syrup. That calorie total equals breakfast for many of us. Sip on one in place of a balanced breakfast and you'll be crashing and craving carbs before lunch. Your co-worker's candy jar-laced cubicle is dangerous territory without a protective breakfast armor of lean proteins and whole-grain carbs.
Have a hot drink, but make it the exception, not the 5-pound-gain holiday rule. Dunkin's DD Smart menu will help lighten the load, and make sure to avoid the trickery at Dunkin' Donuts decision time.
