Look's inviting, doesn't it?

Mcdonald's McCafé® Caramel Mocha

But as Marshall Efron and PBS' "The Great American Dream Machine" taught us almost 50 years ago with one of their "Fun Foods" video essays, pay attention to the label and the product description.

In this case, Mcdonald's McCafé® Caramel Mocha with its hidden-in-plain-sight message...

Enticing Mcdonald's McCafé® Caramel Mocha product inducement

..."topped with whippped topping."

Translation: "No cows were milked
in the creation of this topping!
"

Emptor cavete, or in this case, Videte bibere before plunking down your hard-earned rasbukniks for some dubious chemicals.

I mean, nutritionally you're already getting 320 calories, 11 grams of fat and 45 grams of carbs to go with the 10 grams of protein... and that's just in the small size.

Starbucks, similar item:

"Ingredients
Milk, Brewed Espresso, Mocha Sauce [Water, Sugar, Cocoa Processed With Alkali, Vanillin], Whipped Cream [Cream (Cream, Milk, Mono And Diglycerides, Carrageenan), Vanilla Syrup (Sugar, Water, Natural Flavors, Potassium Sorbate, Citric Acid)].

We cannot guarantee that any of our products are free from allergens (including dairy, eggs, soy, tree nuts, wheat and others) as we use shared equipment to store, prepare and serve them."

The only overall real difference is price

. Kudos, Mickey Dee. (They also provide a senior citizen priced coffee for 79 cents.)
Not talking Starbucks, talking Mcdonald's latest designer caffeine delivery system, m'dear.
