IT’S NOVEMBER AND you know what that means: time for Starbucks’ ridiculous seasonal drinks!

This year, Starbucks has added four Christmas drinks to its menu — the eggnog latte, toffee nut latte, honey and almond hot chocolate, and gingerbread latte.

All sound kind of delicious, right? But how many calories do they have?

Let’s take a look…
