    There was a discussion awhile back re: Starbucks and their syns/HEX allowance and I posted the cup sizes. I was saying that a tall iced latte (semi skimmed milk, not skinny) was 1 HEX A. Well I noticed when I got my iced latte that they only actually filled the cup halfway with milk - the rest was coffee and ice so I figured that you could actually have a grande iced latte for 1 HEX A. I checked out the cals for that on Starbucks website and it's 126 which is almost 6.5 syns - a HEX is usually around 6 syns so in my estimate you could get away with one for a HEX A.

    Also, this does not apply to normal lattes as they use all milk and fill the cup up.

    Just thought I'd share that!

    Skinny Hot Chocolate with whip:
    Tall: 20
    Grande: 25
    Venti: 30.5

    Although presumably you can use some of your milk allowance towards that so I'd deduct 6 for a HEX allowance leaving you with 14 for a tall. Whip is 3-3.5 syns so I'd deduct that if you don't have whip which takes it down to 11 for a tall. Not sure why it's so high though as mocha syrup is approx 2.5 syns/2 pumps.

    RECALL RECALL RECALL RECALL RECALL

    Just to say that I took a TALL cold drinks cup from Starbucks today and measured how much was half a cup and it turns out it is roughly 250ml so for a 'normal' (semi-skimmed) iced latte would be 1 HEX - NOT the grande as I previously thought. Just thought I'd share that.
