Bloomberg Soda Ban Absurdity: (Banned) 20oz. Coke vs. (non-banned) Venti Mocha Frappucino

Starbucks says it doesn’t have to comply with Mike Bloomberg’s sugary drink ban because its large drinks contain milk. But how much sugar? We report. You decide — whether Starbucks will be skirting the law.

A Venti (20 oz.) Mocha Frappucino has 79 grams of sugar (316 calories).

A 20 oz. Coke has 65 grams of sugar (240 calories).

So although the 20 oz. Mocha Frappucino has 32% more sugar calories than a 20 oz. Coke — it’s the Coke that’s illegal?

  1. We are truly being lead….. or should I say, RULED by the certifiably insane.

  2. In addition to having more sugar calories, a mocha would have fat from the milk product. Surely this is an equal threat (it is, zero being equal to zero).
