(WIAT) — Did you ever wonder how much fat is in your Frappacino or how much sugar is in your scone?

At Starbucks you will soon inform their customers about these things.

The Seattle-based coffee chain will begin posting calorie counts on menu boards for drinks and food.

The state of New York already requires the information to be listed.

The full menu with calorie counts can be found by clicking this link.
