Blogger Challenge #22 – Starbucks Anyone?

Fitness Cheerleader question of the day:  Do you drink coffee?  Yes, but oh, how my order has changed…

Then:   “I will have a Starbucks venti caramel macchiato upside down with extra caramel, whipped cream and 4 packets of Splenda please.  I take my coffee like I like my men:  sweet, yet complicated.”

Now:  “I’ll have black coffee please.  I take my coffee like I like my HBO specials:  dark and bitter.”

OK, I add 2 packets of Stevia and a few drops of vanilla extract that I carry in my purse.  But damn, I miss a good cup of liquid sugar sometimes.

  1. I too used to have a full fat, full sugar Vanilla latte.. at times having a mocha with the delicious whipped cream on top. I’m not ready to have black coffee.. so now I have a 1/2 sweet white mocha americano…

  2. I can’t do black coffee. Can not. At home I use cream and splenda or stevia and at Starbucks I usually get a skinny latte, sometimes with sugar free vanilla. My absolute favourite is a gingerbread latte, which I always get once around Christmas, sugar be damned!

  3. Up here in Canada it’s Tim hortons over Starbucks but it used to be 4-5 large (grande) double cream(yes, real yummy whole cream) double sugar.
    Now peppermint tea – straight.

  4. So funny but true… I remember a life of unabashed half and half use!!! Ahhhh… Now, I too know the dark side. Have you ever tried the liquid stevia drops???? They are amazing (and comp friendly if Daniel agrees ;)). Check them out on amazon if your local store doesn’t carry them. BTW, you are looking great!
