New Starbucks Toffee Mocha - Tasty Treat with 70 Day's Worth of Calcium?

Starbucks is talking up their new Toffee Mocha hot and cold drinks this fall as a seasonal addition to the menu. The blend of flavors is certainly indulgent and according to Starbucks is made with "Espresso, toffee sauce, fresh steamed milk foam, and cocoa powder."

When looking at the Starbucks website for the Toffee Mocha, I was struck by the nutrition that they pack into the drink. After a closer look, it appears that in a Venti sized drink, you can get ten weeks' worth of calcium (7000%) and 1,000% of your recommended level of iron; that's 10 day's worth! That's as much calcium as 230+ regular glasses of milk and as much iron as over two hundred eggs. Ouch!

Humm, since these things don't taste like rusty bits of chalk, I am thinking someone messed up their math on the website. Anyway, Like the Pumpkin Spiced Latte, the Toffee Mocha is only around for a few weeks.
