    This afternoon I thought I treat myself to something that's ok with the LL guidelines, so I bought myself a nice Costa iced Americano while picking up the kids from school. When I drank some it somehow tasted suspiciously sweet (albeit it tasted very nice so drank it anyway..). As had kids in tow didn't much fancy going back and asking them what was actually in it. As far as I was aware an americano basically is coffe and water (and in this case ice). does anyone know what it actually is they put in it to make it taste sweet. I checked on their website but couldn't find any info. I hope it's just sweetener, as I have been 100% so far this week and would hate to have consumed anything which of all things contained sugar...

    Not sure but the Starbucks version is just coffee and ice and 17 calories for a large version. So hopefully you will be fine.

    I've had a sweet on from Costa as well and wondered what they'd put in it. The next time I went to a diferent store and they guy asked me if I wanted syrup in it and I said no - so I think that was the mystery solved! Next time make sure it's just espresso and iced water and nothing else!

    Thanks for answering my question!
    That probably explains my headache I had for part of Saturday. Probably Syrup withdrawal:eek:
    I am just surprised that they are not required to ask, keep in mind all the health and safety regarding allergies/diabetics and so on. Or maybe it was just my luck and I was the only customer that day that wasn't ask whehter they would like some syrup in their coffee.

    Well that will teach me to take things for granted (something I should never do while on LL), coffe doesn't always mean just coffee...
