Starbucks "skinny": when did this happen? I'm poisoned!!

danna | Jun 8, 2012 05:46 AM

When did "skinny" stop meaning "skim milk" and start meaning skim milk AND sugar-free ? I usually get drip coffee, but the grinder was broken, so I got a "skinny mocha". The damn thing was disgusting, and a bit of googling led me to the realization that saying skinny got me sugar free chocolate syrup.

To make matters worse, the starbucks website has a blank where the nutriton info is supposed to be, so I can't tell what kind of artificial sweetener I accidentally consumed. If it's aspartame, I'll be throwing up soon. ARRGGH!!!

Anybody know when this happened, and/or what kind of sweetener they use?
