Several years ago I was severely addicted to Tim Horton's Iced Caps. I finally decided that it just wasn't worth it anymore (I'm lactose intolerant and I wanted to make the transition from vegetarian to vegan). So I kicked that habit. Go me!
After a couple of months of no coffee drinks whatsoever I stumbled into a Starbucks bleary eyed and in desperate need of a caffeine fix. It was autumn and the barista immediately saw my need. She hooked me up to an IV drip of soy pumpkin spice latte. I was hooked! Sadly, as a new Starbucks convert, I was unaware that Pumpkin Spice Latte's are only offered in the autumn/early winter months. So come January I went through withdrawal again! I tried their other offerings but none of them really did it for me. One glorious day at my local Starbucks, the barista said "Heather, you must try this! It's a soy frappaccino!" Mmmmmmm.....it was very similar to my Tim Hortons Iced Cap...so cold and delicious! So this little tale has a very happy ending. Or...does it?
