Starbucks White Chocolate Mocha

Unread postby swerb » Tue Feb 05, 2008 1:44 pm

I used to be the guy that refused to pay $1.50 for "a cup of coffee" at Starbucks. Then I became the guy that relented, started going there, but got nothing but the coffee of the day.

Year later, I started experimenting with the soft core drinks. A cafe mocha, maybe a regular coffee with an extra shot of espresso.

Now? I'm sucking down 5-6 White Chocolate Mochas a week, at like $4.15 a pop. If you drink a tall one in under 20 minutes, it's one hell of a high, especially if you skip lunch.

Whatever the hell they're doing over there, it's worked on me. You win Starbucks.

Peppermint Hot Chocolate or Vanilla Creme for me. Once a weeker usually with one right here on campus.

Double espresso with a splash of hot milk. $1.97

All of their flavored drinks, especially the frappucino ones, have gazillions of calories - OK for you young kids, but not someone my age 8) :cool: 8-)

Coffee is the one damn thing where I'm an elitist. I'll drink whatever beer you throw out there, eat pretty much anything made, but the coffee has to be strong and dark.

Starbucks is the leader in the clubhouse for me and when I'm travelling for work I make 30 friends every morning when I bring in a couple carriers of that stuff into an office.

It's gotta be junked up with another south american product.

White mocha's are way too sweet, but I cannot deny the daily cafe americano with an extra shot....

Stuff is like crack.

Never drank a cup of coffee in my life, not one.
