Anyone who knows me knows I'm a sucker for Starbucks. I like Petes coffee, but there isn't a Petes on every corner. I even like generic coffee...I put so much milk and sugar in my coffee, it almost doesn't matter what kind of coffee I start with...but when it comes to Frappuccinos? Starbucks wins hands down.
BERRY SEASON AT STARBUCKS Starbucks has released two new flavors..Blueberries and Raspberries. Blueberries and Creme Frappuccino's. Shaken Blueberry White Iced Tea. Raspberry Mochas...I need to go get one NOW! I loved last years summer Banana Fraps so I'm looking forward to trying this new Blueberry one.
CHOCOLATE AND COFFEE Remember the liquid chocolate drink at Starbucks called Chantico? Man I loved that stuff. I would get a small coffee and a small Chantico and life was perfect. But then they no longer made Chanticos and life wasn't so perfect. It seems folks didn't like the Chanticos because they tasted like a melted chocolate bar (and the problem with that was?????) But now, Starbucks has teamed with Hersheys Chocolate to make chocolate flavored coffee products so maybe there is hope? Being offered in drug and department stores this fall will be a premium chocolate; chocolate bars, truffles and chocolate covered coffee beans should be available sometime next year.

9 CENTS MORE Starting today, your Starbucks will be costing you 9 cents more. As Barbie2be originally told us back in her post here Starbucks is going to raise the price of their coffee today due to "higher dairy and fuel costs". They raised the prices 5 cents just last October 5. Lets see that's 6300 corporate owned stores, 9 cents each coffee...yeah, that's a lot of dairy and fuel money! (the 3500 licensed stores don't have to raise their prices, but you know they will). Didn't Starbucks just go from using whole milk to 2% recently as a default? Shouldn't that have helped lower the cost of drinks? Sigh. Will the raise stop me from buying that Frapp? No. I'm weak.
