Here's MY calorie breakdown to bring that 130 to something that actually burns calories. (You'll like my world.)

1) Walk or run to your nearest (or to burn more, farthest) Starbucks retailer
- approx 50 calories

2) Order a short, non fat, no-whip, half sweet Pumpkin Spice Latte
*The half sweet is key here, it cuts calories by 50%*
-65 calories

3)Walk home, do not plug the little hole at the top. See, this allows for about 1/3 of the latte to spill over, therefor cutting calories. Amount of calories cut will depend on how clumsy you walk, potholes in the road, etc. If you choose to maximize your calorie cutting, have a light jog home, keeping that arm-cup-holder at a 90 degree angle at the elbow, with a straight wrist and firm grasp on cup (you don't want to lose the drink entirely!). This will cut another third from the drink itself, and the jogging will burn another 50 calories.
- 50 calories for walk home, and 15 for spillage

There you have it, one short non-fat, no-whip half sweet Pumpkin Spice Latte for a total of NEGATIVE 50 Calories.

See? Tis the season!
