Call me basic, but I love Starbucks. Who doesn’t, really?!? I’m not as obsessed as some of my friends, but I will stop by to get a drink without a second thought. I always think that I’m going to try something different, but time after time I keep ordering the chai frappuccino. SO GOOD!
I remember the first time I had Starbucks, purchased from the little location inside the grocery store next to my high school. It was summer (I think I was 16?) and I was at a summer color guard camp for my school, and the weapon line (rifles and sabres) took a little “adventure” with our coach and practiced spinning our rifles while walking across the field, street, and parking lot until we got to Starbucks for a treat. I don’t think I had ever had coffee before, and was sure I was going to hate it. (Oh young Kelly just you wait…) So the coach ordered me an iced caramel macchiato, convinced that I would love it since it “didn’t taste like coffee at all.” He was wrong – I hated it. Fast forward 2 years and I would be sucking them down like there was no tomorrow! Ha!
What’s your go-to order at Starbucks? I’m always looking for new delicious things to try… although since I’m a creature of habit, there is a 83% chance that I’ll chicken out and get ol’ reliable anyway. Unless it’s the winter, when I will just get the chai latte. Or if it’s the fall, in which case I will get the chai latte with a pump of pumpkin spice syrup. Are you sensing a theme here?
