Starbucks? You better share!
 This time of year, Starbucks puts out some special holiday lattes (and frappuccinos for those of us who live where it's nice and toasty and would like an icey coffee instead). While I'm generally a Caramel Macchiato chick, the holiday season at Starbucks makes me all...floopy. I get up to the counter and I look like one of those confused "black coffee" drinkers with too many choices in front of me. I can't decide...so I order two kinds and just hope my husband finds it easier to decide which one he wants and I just take the other (and a few drinks of his). 

So ANYWAY...this weekend (from today until Sunday the 21st) from 2:00 - 5:00 pm at any Starbucks, you can buy one cup of awesome fattening sugary sweet holiday deliciousness and get another free. Just thought I'd pass on that tidbit of happy little news. What kind are you going to get? (if you don't like Starbucks, humor me)

 So I sat here and tried to pick for #1 and had to come back. It depends on the day, but I'll always pick between these three:

Caramel Brulee
Gingerbread Latte
Eggnog Latte

And one time the little guy that worked at the Starbucks I used to go to in the mornings when I had to take my daughter to school suggested a Gingerbread Eggnog Latte. It was decadent. Although, I ordered it at another Starbucks not long after that and it sucked...soo...I'm skrred now.

 Last year I lucked out and was able to get a big bottle of their gingerbread syrup for $3 on clearance right after Christmas. I had gingerbread coffee for months...it was awesome.

The only iced drink I get is an iced caramel macchiato (by the way......the ice cream version is OUT OF THIS WORLD GOODATIOUSNESS times 100)

This time of the year, I rotate what I order (hot). It goes like this--------------after church---gingerbread or pumpkin spice (mine still has this one), random trip during a random day=peppermint mocha.

I love Starbucks but only allow myself one visit a week .......two if I get my sh*t done at work before it turns dark. Oh and I am all tingly now that the Gingerbread loaf is BACK.

 Oh I forgot I was going to add Pumpkin Spice to the list...mine here still has it too, but I don't know if it's included in the Buy One Get One deal right now or not. 

Mmmmmmmm Gingerbread Loaf!

And yes - the Caramel Macchiato ice cream is unbelievable. It tastes like they just shoved a Caramel Macchiato in the freezer. I know people might say "duh" but...ice cream flavors almost NEVER taste like they're supposed to

No Starbucks for me, Thank You. Ive never understood why anyone would ever pay more than $1.00 for a cup of coffee.

 Because to those of us who do, it's more than just a cup of coffee. It's a treat 

Would I spend more than $1 on just a cup of coffee? Heck no...probably not even that much. I can make that at home.

Gotta drive 45 minutes to get to the nearest Starbucks so needless to say I've never had any of their stuff. What do you all suggest I get when I break my Starbucks cherry someday?

Sad to say, I've never had anything other than black coffee at Starbucks, and they're on every street corner here in Orlando. I don't need another addiction.

For starters, a translator.  Ordering at Starbucks is a second language in and of itself.  
I knew I shouldn't have wasted those 4 years of high school on Spanish.

#17 | 1398 days ago

I have a date at Starbacks sometime this weekend. I'll have to try one of these flavors that I haven't before, based on recommendation. Looking forward to it.
#18 | 1398 days ago

I thought about doing this today..  but given my episode last night, I'm going to hold off on caffeine for a little while.

But my fave is White Chocolate Peppermint mocha for hot, and Peppermint Mocha for blended.

OK Crabby pants, you don't have to swear at me.
Obviously you didn't read the intro very carefully...

....if you don't like Starbucks, humor me...

That includes coffee. I'll take both if you don't want them. What are you buying?

SHEESH, Some people's children! I tried a Caramel Macchiato in October and was in love forever.  Today I tried the Carmel Brulee (no BOGO in Canuckland dammit) and was even more in love.  One of my good friends loves the Peppermint WHITE chocolate Mocha, so I would get that for her and we would sit (outside, even, in the cold) and enjoy the decadence! 

BTW, I get to frequent Starbucks a lot more often than I used to.  One of our grocery stores went "no frills" meaning it is basically a warehouse full of non-name products, so I am driving across town to Safeway for our groceries.  There is a Starbucks right inside the door

Why are there no Starbucks open at midnight? I would love that.

And I would stick with my Caramel Macchiato anyways, but that wasn't an option.

The one "by" me used to be open 24 hours... then they changed and they are now open from 4am till midnight.  I guess I never understood why they would do this.. I mean you would assume clean up after they close so leave by 1ish and start up the pots and get the baked goods ready by 4 so I am guessing 3ish... what's the point in closing for those 2 hours?

which would make sense if we didn't have winter 86 months out of the year, and if this Starbucks wasn't located on an interstate....

I think they do it just to make me drive REALLY fast at 11:46 p.m.

 Gas station coffee with fake caramel creamer is vomit-worthy disgusting. Just thinking about it makes my nose twitch. We ever meet and I'm treating you to a REAL Caramel Macchiato.
