Four


Day 4- a habit that you wish you didn’t have.

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?

What's your addiction? :)

  3. I have a coffee addiction as well. Love this little story. How did you survive without coffee for so long? Incredible willpower!
    Can't wait for future posts from you.

  6. I really do understand your frustration, if something you like, only available is during a little part of the year...
    But good to read that they have soy frappacino, and you like it!

    To be honest, I don't like the starbucks coffee...
    But that doesn't matter ;-)

  7. MrsWhiffin, my current frap of choice is the white mocha flavor. Yum! :)

    Thanks Anni!

    Jill, I'm not really sure! I think I was of the mindset that if I couldn't have my Tim Hortons iced cap then I just wouldn't have any coffee at all! Crazy, I know!

    Faiza, thank you! I think the 30 Days Challenge is fun! :)

    Bloempje666, what kind of coffee do you enjoy?

  9. It's funny I only drink starbucks when I'm in the states or UK. Here in NL i prefer the smaller coffee companies, that sell Simon Leveldt coffee. I get my coffee beans from them too. A nice cuppa strong Crorazon in the morning is what i need to function properly. An addiction it is, haha!
