Dutch Bros electric berry: sizes, nutrition, caffeine & Calories
What sizes are available?
Dutch Bros offers the electric berry in three sizes; medium, small, and large size. If you have a kid, I would recommend the electric berry Dutch soda in a small size as it contains relatively low calories and won’t harm your kid’s health. However, for adults who love high-caffeinated drinks, you can have the large or medium size of the electric berry energy drink. Generally, the most popular size at Dutch Bros is the medium size since every drink is offered in medium size and is also nutritionally friendly.
Dutch Bros electric berry energy drink is not unhealthy; its calorie content is just slightly high. A large serving size of this drink has 390 calories, a medium has 240 calories, and a small has 190 calories. Considering the daily calorie intake limit is 2000, having 240 calories from a morning drink is not that bad.
However, the carb content in this beverage is relatively high. A large serving has 97 grams of carbs, a medium has 60 grams, while a small size, only 12 ounces, has a whole 49 grams. The daily intake limit of carbs ranges from 225 to 325 grams, depending on your health status. Therefore, if you are obese or have any underlying condition, getting 97 grams of carbs from one drink is quite unhealthy, and chances are you will exceed the daily limit by the time the day ends.
