I’m not advocating going to Starbucks instead of a local coffee shop, but the reliability and familiar feel of Starbucks is sometimes appreciated. Starbucks isn’t the same here, though. It lures me in with promises from home then stares at me dumb. You already know about my problems getting iced coffee. Wait till you read what else Starbucks is missing.
I know: what? Isn’t this one of their best-selling holiday drinks? I don’t know, but it seems like it would be. I mean, what’s autumn without pumpkin spice? Good thing I had the chance to enjoy one before I moved.
Also, though I thought I’d mentioned this elsewhere (but maybe didn’t?), no GTLs! No green tea lattes, with or without soy. “Latte?” she says to me. What’s a girl to do? This is a go-to drink in heat or frost. I’m going to be slurping these down next July till my pee is green.
I’d already accepted that double shots (long absent from Starbucks menus) probably wouldn’t be available, but this is too much. What is nice, though, is that my Starbucks card works here, so I can still get stars and free drinks and whatnot. But where, oh, where is my GTL? It’s far superior to a chai latte.
