I have searched everywhere but i cannot find the calories in any of the items at Louisa or Coco, does anyone know where I can find his information? I was specifically looking for the calories in a bubble milk tea from CoCo and a honey rooibos latte at Louisa. (I know this is probably a stupid and meaningless question )
Have you asked in the stores? They should have this info on hand.
They should have.
The listing of nutritional information is good but not required… It’s only required for pre-packed products and since Louisa coffee doesn’t sell pre-packed drinks or dessert they aren’t legally required to provide nutritional information.
Thanks Tando and Rooftopclown, that is a great idea. I’ll ask them.
That makes sense. Thank you. I guess what I can do is just use Starbucks website to compare with their version of the drink, and plan accordingly.
@padraig Or just ask for minimal sugar. The Coco I frequent lets you choose ice and sugar levels.
That is a great idea.
I usually get 70% sugar and zero ice (if I get ice, it inhibits eating the tapioca, hahaha ). But you are right, I should go lower on the sugar.
Most of the calories will be in the sugar, at about 35 calories per teaspoon (5g).
I agree that most of the calories would come from the sugar, but I think a teaspoon of sugar “only” has 16 calories.
You are right, granulated sugar is about 16, powdered sugar is double that. Not sure about the liquid corn syrup that is commonly used here.
If in doubt you can always ask for “wei tang” or “wu tang*” at tea places.
*Not the clan.
Maybe make your own coffee if you’re worried? And if you’re drinking bobble tea, just treat it like treat to yourself and not worry. I will treat myself to some junk food like Burger King once in awhile especially late night when I’m just ridiculously hungry. I just take it as it is and not stress about the nutrition of it. If you’re on a good healthy diet you shouldn’t worry about getting a bubble tea here and there. If you’re a daily drinker, maybe it’s time to cut it out or not drink it anymore if you’re really concerned
Calories are one thing, the whole macro-nutrition combo (carbs, protein, fat) is another … tell me about it!
