the red cup...

...has arrived. too soon? maybe for some. here's my 2 cents about the christmas drinks i've tried thus far:
-the eggnog latte--top notch. very rich though, because it's made with real eggnog.
-gingerbread latte--i remember this from last year. not really a fan. the taste of the syrup is just something i don't like.
-skinny peppermint mocha--i got to try a small sample of this one. awful, in my opinion. i'm not a mocha/chocolate person anyways, but this just doesn't do it for me. i think it's the sugar free syrups. when i've gotten a sugar free vanilla latte in the past, it was that same taste i didn't like. oh well. guess i like my sugar.
-caramel brule latte--again, not a fan. too, buttery (if that's the right word) for me.
 fyi: the cranberry bliss bar gets an A+
 had to make it somewhat healthy...
 whoa, now christmas trees are out too.

lets hear it for starbucks cards courtesy of the parents and free samples ;) anyone else excited, or do you think it's just too early? have a favorite?

When I worked at Caribou we had a gingerbread latter and I always turned it into a gingerbread white mocha with less gingerbread. That was yummy!

I love that the pumpkin spice latte's are usually available through Christmas. That one is BY FAR my favorite :) mmmmmm.

I agree with you. The others don't look to good :/

Unnecessarily excited about the red cups being out! And I'm not one for the "skinnies" I like real sugar! Also not a big fan of mocha/chocolate in my coffee, but if you haven't, try the peppermint white mocha. To die!! My fave Starbucks drink!
