Popular K-Cup Pods Calorie Count [Coffee, Flavored Coffee & Hot Chocolate Pods]

Keurig’s world of K-Cup pods is a large one. It has black coffee, flavored coffee, hot chocolate and many more beverages. And if you’re anything like me, some days you’ll pop one after another and drink them without a second thought.

But if you’re ever on a strict diet or just trying to watch out for your calorie consumption, it’s important to know what is the calorie count of these pods.

As a rule of thumb, if the box doesn’t list a calorie count, it means it’s practically calorie free.

Do K-Cup Pods Have Calories?

Let’s start by answering this popular question. The answer will totally depend on which pod you are consuming:

  • Black coffee pods don’t contain any calories, or an unmentionable 1 or 2 calories per cup.
  • Flavored coffee can have some calories, the amount will depend on if it’s black flavored coffee or if it contains milk or artificial flavorings.
  • Hot chocolate pods definitely contain calories.

Below, you’ll find the most popular pods and their calorie counts.

These are pods of black coffee that contain flavors only but no sweeteners or diary content. The great news is, all of these pods contain 1 to 2 calories max, so you can basically count them as calorie-free pods. And if the brand you’re buying is not listed below, rest assured, if it’s flavored and black, then it’s calorie-free!

Adding sugar, creamer or syrups to these coffees will add calories to them. So make sure to count those separately.
