Starbucks to post calories on menu boards

Starbucks recently announced plans to post calorie information for its beverages on menu boards at all stores operated by the company ahead of a federal law requiring them to do so sometime in the next year or two. (The US Food and Drug Administration still hasn’t issued its final regulation on this, so it’s not clear when chain restaurants will have to comply.)
