Peppermint Mocha

So for the last week or so I have been craving a coffee drink. Not a cup of coffee, but a foofy coffee drink. This morning I stopped at Starbucks and had a Grande Peppermint Mocha.

Peppermint Mocha

Rich, full bodied Starbucks® espresso combined with steamed milk and our proprietary mocha syrup and accented by a complex, refreshing peppermint syrup. Whipped cream (optional) adds richness and ruby-red sprinkles provide a festive crunch.


Ok, I will admit it was a little slice of heaven in a cup with whipped cream and red sprinkles.

But, do people drink things like this everyday? I'm not sure how often I can drop $4 for a drink.

Plenty of people feed the Starbucks monster their money on a daily (and sometimes multiple times). I go once every so often when I'm in the mood for a warm beverage.

hahah! Last year my sister was SO hooked on peppermint mochas, I was like.. eh. This year, I'm totally hooked, too! It's insane. Everytime I go in there I'm like "I can't believe I'm spending this much money on coffee!" then I found that exact recipe online. I ordered some sugarfree peppermint syrup online (I have regular here at home but I can't find sugarfree) so I'm going to make them at home :D

Everydangtime I go to starbucks lately (well twice), they've been out of the peppermint mocha makings. BASTARDS!!!

But yeah, actually, while I was pregnant with Grant I stopped in Starbucks usually at least twice a week to get either a soy chai latte (not because I'm hippy, it tasted better) or a decaf caramel frapp. Mmmmm. No wonder Grant's such a tub.

shadoh and I go on Fridays before work. The rest of the week, I drink Starbucks drip coffee from the work cafeteria.
