Thumbs Down, Starbucks

I actually was running EARLY this morning and decided to use my extra few minutes on my way to work to stop in and use my Starbucks gift card. I'm always up for trying new coffee drinks and saw that they had a new one.....Orange Mocha. I figured, I like their mochas and I'd like to try something new and I do like orange chocolates a little bit. So, I stepped up and ordered a non-fat grande, Orange Mocha, no whip. Well, bad idea. BLECH.

The only people that should try it, should be those that are totally and completely OVER THE TOP in love with orange chocolate. It is not a good combination with coffee and it is just way too strong. I expected a light orange chocolate flavor given that some of their other espresso drinks aren't too over the top. But this just about bowled me over.

Don't get me wrong, I drank most of it (I needed the caffiene!), but it was definitely NOT something I'd try again. Makes me wish I'd stuck to my gut and gotten the Dulche de Leche latte or the Cinnamon Dolce latte. Oh well, such is life.

I just can't seem to branch too far out from the caramel macchiato, hot or iced. It's my fav! And thanks for the idea. I'm running early due to Jesse's clogged nose and incessant snoring, so Starbucks sounds real good!
Oh and I wanted to say thanks again so much for my bday gift last year of the golden girls dvd. Our cable is out, so last night I put in my GG's and was transported to happiness!

I'm stuck on the caramel macchiato's too. I haven't been able to order anything but those.
