Has anyone tried the new Starbucks Frappuccino Juice Blends?

A grande tangerine frap juice blend is only 190 calories, not too terrible for a Starbucks drink. Are they any good?

See nutritional info at the bottom of the link provided

I did ask when I've had one before, and it's exactly the values that the calorie king link the OP provided:

190 calories, no fat, 46 g carbs woo hoo!

The 12 oz is probably a better diet deal. 140 calories and 3 points, instead of 190 Calories and 4 points.

Also has a TON of Vitamin C, though Calorie King does not provide that info. The Starbucks website does, and so does the wiki entry. In the wiki entry you can compare between the three sizes ;)

Pom, Green Tea Frappucino

Thanks for the heads up. The Pomegranate smoothie has pom juice and green tea, and I also added this to the wiki. The Pom one has more calories, but more Vitamins, and the Pom and Green Tea are powerful antioxidants.

I did some googling on green tea and discovered that in May of this year Yale researchers realized that people in Asia have lower rates of cancer and heart disease, despite high rates of smoking. They call this the "Asian Paradox"-- Many Asians apparently consume 1.2 liters of green tea a day.
