Do you love pumpkin spice lattes as much as Matt Stonie?
The 24-year old competitive eater from San Jose just showed us all up by drinking seven Venit-sized Starbucks PSLs. That’s more than a gallon of liquid. Oh, and he topped it all off with an entire can of whipped cream.
Stonie admits the whopping caffeine content makes this one of his most dangerous eating challenges. And this is a guy who tackled an 11,000 calorie ice cream sundae.
Let’s do the math.
There are 89 mg of caffeine per Starbucks espresso shot. There are three shots of espresso per Venti-sized Starbucks latte. That’s a total of 267 mg per drink for a grand total of 1,869 mg in Stonie’s giant pumpkin spice latte. For comparison, the Mayo Clinic pegs 400 mg of caffeine per day as “safe”.
