How Many Calories are in McDonald’s Chocolate Chip Frappe?

McDonald’s has been doing an expanded variety of beverage offerings recently. We’ve written about its pineapple smoothie and its cherry berry chiller.

Most recently, it’s been advertising a new McCafe Chocolate Chip Frappe, a special limited-time offering.

The ads sent me to the McDonald’s website to check out calories, etc.

McDonald’s latest, a chocolate chip frappe

A small chocolate chip frappe has 530 calories, 66 grams of sugar, 74 grams of carbs and 170 mgs of sodium, 15 grams of saturated fat and 220 mgs of calcium. Remember, a teaspoon of sugar contains 4.2 grams, so this one with its 66 grams has about 15 teaspoons of sugar. 

If you step up to the medium size you get 630 calories, 81 grams of sugar (about twice the recommended daily intake), 18 grams of saturated fat (which the site notes is 88% of your daily allowance) and 89 grams of carbs.

Please read Tony’s post on the sugar content in How Many Calories in McDonald’s Chocolate Chip Frappe and How Much Sugar? 

No large is listed.

McDonald’s describes the new offering as:

“An indulgent combination of rich mocha, sweet caramel and a hint of coffee, with added chocolate chips, all blended to perfection. Topped with whipped cream plus a double drizzle of chocolate and caramel. Available for a limited time.”

I don’t drink coffee so I’m not trying this one. If you do, understand that at 630 calories it’s basically a meal if you trying to limit your daily calorie intake to 2,000 or so calories.

    Hey, thanks so much for this info. I saw they’re offering a small one for a buck, and I thought it might be a nice treat. But not for 66 grams of sugar!
