Thank you for creating such a wonderfully decadent blended coffee drink. I don’t drink anything other than water all week, but every Friday night, I look forward to consuming your chocolaty sugar bomb that purports to be 500 calories, but we both know is really a lot more than that. I don’t allow myself many food luxuries, as I don’t eat a lot of fast food (maybe a Subway sandwich twice a month), nor do I eat/drink a lot of sugar (the only liquid I consume during the day is water)…..but I allow myself this because it tastes good and makes me feel good, and isn’t that the point? No one buys a Starbucks because it’s health food. They buy it because it’s sugary, caffeinated bliss. I always get mine extra chocolaty by asking the barista to add a few more pumps of mocha syrup on top of the standard four, just because if I’m going in, I’m going all in. While you’re at it Mr. Barista Man, add more whipped cream and mocha drizzle to the top, enough that it squirts out of the hole in the lid you put the straw into like some kind of pornographic coffee money shot. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to take my diabetic coma in a cup and go home to take a tour of Washington D. C. on Google Earth since I don’t have the means of getting there conventionally at the moment.
With the greatest love and respect,
A Starbucks Addict.
