The Biggest Ripoff At Starbucks--What Is It?

Starbucks is the golden standard when it comes to coffee shops. The company made approximately $10 billion in revenue last year and is set to make a similar amount this year! And it’s no surprise considering their menu has everything from fall-inspired lattes to delicious breakfast sandwiches. However, that doesn’t mean that everything sold at Starbucks is worth your money…

Take, for example, the biggest ripoff on the Starbucks menu: those delicious yogurt parfaits. At first glance, you would assume that the parfaits are the perfect snack. They are relatively healthy, made with honey granola, non-fat Greek yogurt, blueberries, and strawberries, and are only 220 calories. Except, these parfaits will cost you upwards of $3.00. You might be thinking that’s not too bad. Oh, but it is. You can buy a whole gallon of Greek yogurt, or even a pack of six parfaits, for the same price at the grocery store!

Save yourself and your wallet some unnecessary pain and go the cheaper route by creating your own parfait at home.
