Me No Likey Starbucks

I did it.

I finally went to Starbucks.

And want to know my thoughts on that?

Well, I don't like coffee, so I asked if they even served soda. The counter help (can you even call this person a barista? She looked barely old enough to drive herself to work) looked at me like I was an alien.

"no, we don't have soda."

HOW IN THE HELL IS THERE A FOOD ESTABLISHMENT ON THE FACE OF THIS PLANET THAT DOES NOT SERVE SODA??? EVEN IF IT HAD BEEN DISGUSTING, VILE DIET PEPSI I WOULD HAVE BEEN ABLE TO DEAL. BUT **NO** SODA????

I think never having been to Starbucks before today, I wasn't missing anything.

And the $1.50 cookie didn't even hold a candle to these babies.

OH no. What? Can't be. You must have. Obviously. You had to have. I know you did. You ordered the wrong thing. How can you no likey my beloved Bux?

Now, the cookies, pastries, etc...I learned a loooong time ago not to waste money on those. They are always dry and ew.

I think you need to give it another shot and go with someone who knows. Because there are TOO many choices so if you don't know what's up, it can be overwhelming. Thay have lots of non-coffee drinks. I'll get some suggestions from my husband for you!

I prefer my local gelateria's coffee in the mornings...but starbucks has a drivethru for when I just need coffee on my way somewhere else.

About half the coffee places I go to serve soda. The other half, besides starbucks, look down on mere soda drinkers...

I don't care for coffee myself, but I do adore their passion ice tea lemonade for a cool drink and their chai tea latte for something warm.

Try the tea. It is good. And the chai latte, it doesn't have coffee in it either. But don't try the hot chocolate. It isn't very sweet. But I guess you could add some splenda.

Sacrilege. Blasphemy. Seven words: Grande, non-fat, extra-hot, no-water chai tea latte. SB has my undying love for this drink.
