It's still fast food, any way you cut it-
Their bread is artisan, their salads have cranberries but is the food at Starbucks any better for you than McDonald's fare? The coffee giant just pulled up behind the golden arches to become the number three fast food chain in America. Part of their success is being credited to healthier menu options than the standard drive-through meal. In the case of their carrot sticks and hummus platter, this may be true, but some of their staple grab-and-go menu options are deceptively high in calories and fat.
