    I have never ordered anything from Starbucks. I think I have only been there once or twice.

    I'll admit it, I've been known to stop in there. I mean there's only like 18 of them on campus. I just get a venti black coffee though. Nothing fancy.

    Hell no!. Why would I go to Starbucks when I can get a better cup of coffee for cheaper at Dunkin Doughnuts!

    Venti Iced Americano - Light water or no water replace with iced coffee for filler.

    I try to avoid Sbuks and go to mom and pop coffee shops or the Coffee Bean/Tea Leaf.

    It was super good, I got it as is but if you added another shot to it it would taste less sweet. I wanted to try the drink plain first to assess if it could carry an extra shot with out becoming super bitter....it can!

    Its all seasonal!
    Fall = pumpkin spice latte
    Winter = peppermint mocha
    Spring = white chocolate cinnamon latte
    Summer = caramel frap!

    Whole milk, loaded with whip cream. I'd rather not bother if im gonna do the skinny, sugar free business.

    Huh? You mean shipping coffee there? Or free?

    You can't necessarily blame a company for not sending free stuff, and you have no idea if they are not supporting them in other ways.

    I know when I was in Saudi, we ordered a bunch of Starbucks beans...and they were very helpful and fast in their shipping.

    Dunkin D has very reasonable prices, why people pay $4 for a cup of coffee is beyond me...

    My friends said that starbucks made it very clear that they did not support the war or military in any way shape or form. I dont think they were looking to just get free stuff though im sure they were hoping for it ( lol dont we all). To my understanding they survived (not literally) off of redbull, ephedrine, and starbuck( double shots i think was what was popular). I think they were just looking for cheaper avenues for caffeine. I think Target had a similar stance as well but im sure there are many companies with that stance.

    Weird...we have been working with Target to bring the JavaLique' line (Java Lather Bath and Body Products) there...and they make it VERY clear that they support all veterans and make special efforts to support companies owned by us.

    I had an inkling that I'd get MANY responses to this thread - I personally don't give a d@mn that SBUX is so expensive, it's the best tasting coffee out there IMO. Gotta have my Iced Cafe Americano - its like a shot of energy with taste!
