Girls Bite Out - Latte vs. Misto

The ongoing battle with the Bucks.  Who wants to drink hundreds of calories without a buzz?  Not me.  Lattes are tasty but that cup is almost all milk with just a shot of espresso.  Meet Mr. Misto, aka coffee with steamed milk.  The Misto has more coffee and less milk, yet still has the froth and creaminess.

Here’s the comparison of calories w/ nonfat milk for a Tall (12oz):

Tall
Latte – 100
Misto – 60


And while we're cutting calories, let's not forget about our friend Shorty.  The less known Short is an 8 ounce cup.  It may look small but when you think about it, it's the same size as an old school coffee mug. 

Short
Latte – 70
Misto – 35

Wow. I never thought of this. Great idea. Did you realize if you save 40 calories a day 365 days a year - you have cut out 14,600 calories.
