Starbucks...what do you drink?

So when and if you go to Starbucks, what do you guys/gals usually get?!?

I'm pretty partial to their Vanilla Creme Frappucino in the summer and Hot Vanilla Creme in the winter months.

Always order the Venti size, of course!

I even got Shane to actually enjoy them every once in awhile. My daughter, like her Mom, loves the stuff!!!


Yes, this is what happens when Paulette has too much time on her hands at work!!!

I never go to Starbucks, and I can walk to one in a couple of minutes.......it's WAY OVER PRICED. I love coffee, but I refuse to pay the prices they charge. I have been in love with this coffee from Sumtra, beautiful aroma, bold taste, not bitter. I also have cafe du Mond from New Orleans, with chicory (sp?). Ethopian and Nigerian are some of my all time favs too. Jamician Blue Mountain, is totally overrated to mellow for my liking and even at the bargin price of $18 a pound, over priced. People usually give me coffee as gifts, and honestly I think they over roast their beans, but as usual the spousal unit LOVES Starbucks, so they get my money anyways.

I like confusing the kid behind the counter by orering a large black coffee.

Look, I can appreciate this. I was young too, I felt just like you. Hated authority, hated all my bosses, thought they were full of shit. Look, it's like they say, if you're not a rebel by the age of 20, you got no heart, but if you haven't turned establishment by 30, you've got no brains. Because there are no story-book romances, no fairy-tale endings. So before you run out and change the world, ask yourself, "What do you really want?"

Have to say I like a sugar free vanilla latte on occasion. But my favorite is simply Dunkin Donuts vanilla or hazlenut coffee with half and half...the best coffee out there in my opinion.

Psst! Rick, I knew that .

I haven't drank coffee in about 4 years since I got preggy with my daughter. I always liked Starbucks' coffee-alternative drinks

That's why I asked..."what do you drink?" and not "what coffee do you drink?" So there!!!

I actually used to drink Venti Vanilla Lattes and then Venti Cafe Mochas but if I was still drinking coffee now, I'd go with the Venti White Mochas, they sound yummy!

No worries though, actually I'm still an Oberweis child at heart but being lactose intolerant I have to go with the less rich flavor of Starbucks most of the time .

Anyhow, Starbucks is so accessible. There's one in every corner in the city (Chicago)! Man would I love to invest in a franchise, too bad they don't franchise it out.

Grande Mocha with whipped cream. But I can only take that much caffeine if I don't plan on sleeping for 48 hours.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

That's why I don't go, wayyyyyy over priced, besides I bet they don't even sell regular coffee. And where I live, everytime I see an idiot driver who blows a stop sign or doesn't use a turn signal, I see a Starbucks coffee cup in thier hand. I have hear they do treat thier employees very good there.

Over priced coffee drinks for sure...but I really like the Tmobile hot spot service. I have an account, use it all the time when I'm the road between calls. Sugar free vanilla lattes are good...but just a tall cup of House blend with half and half and a little Splenda is good for me and my laptop.

They always have coffee. Ususally more than one, including a decaf.


In the winter I'll have a 4 shot grande Americano, in the summer an iced grande americano. Unless the coffee of the day is Sumatra, in which case I'd just have that.

I don't go to starbucks often, and when I do it's usually just regular coffee. Maybe a double-shot cappucino, but it's been awhile since I had one.

I usually get the same thing. Just had one an hour ago as a matter of fact. Usually get them to add the malt to it as well. Sometimes though I go for the Caramel Macchiato with extra caramel. Just as good hot or iced.
