Most people would assume that a cup of hot chocolate is pretty unhealthy. That’s pretty obvious since it’s steamed milk with sugar and whipped cream. The part that really surprises people is just exactly how unhealthy a hot white chocolate from Starbucks is!

White hot chocolate has more calories than a Big Mac
This is the fact or statistic that might surprise you the most. A McDonald’s big mac has 530 calories, which is actually less than a Starbucks’ white chocolate coming in at 590 calories. Even if you order the smaller version of the white chocolate (Grande 160z), it’s still very close with 480 calories.
