I don’t love coffee. I know! I KNOW! Please don’t hate me.
I just can’t deal with the flavor drinking it. I’ve tried. I’ve tried drinking it with different syrups, flavors, sugars, whatever. Nothing works. Even the pumpkin spice ones. I only ever drink it if I’m to be driving long distances and need something to keep me awake. At which point I get it iced so that as the ice melts it tastes less and less like coffee.
HOWEVER, I do like dipping my donuts in coffee. I also LOVE the smell of coffee.
Still, I have a Starbucks favorite. Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate Some people get freaked out by the salted part, but it is amazing. I wish it were under 90 degrees here so I could enjoy this today, but it’s super-hot. I have to wait another month before it’ll be cool enough to drink. They put the salt on the top, and add caramel and toffee syrup. The toffee is what really makes it amazing. It should be called Salted Toffee Caramel Hot Chocolate.
I’ll sometimes have this during the year, even once the stores run out of the salt. I just ask them to make it with the toffee. Of course that toffee makes it so high in everything that it’s horribly bad for you, but I don’t have it often, so that makes it okay, right?
If you’re ever in the mood for hot chocolate I definitely recommend this drink at Starbucks!
