For those who go to Starbucks often, may I ask a favor? I might be the only one, but I really liked the Juniper Latte. Can you ask if they’ll have it this year?

The answer is probably “no”; I never saw anyone else order one!

Only go to Starbucks to be sociable. Not really sure why people drink coffee. My best friend likes Starbucks, so when we go I let her order first, then say "What she said".

We were at the Mall at Millenia (Orlando) yesterday and had to ask for the Christmas cups. They had not been given clear instructions on how to give them out and didn't know if they were suppose to make the drink in them or distribute them another way. I am guessing that is why they still had them at noon.
I discovered the Mall at Millenia last holiday season when we moved to Celebration.
I love that Mall and feel so rich and beautiful just walking inside the Center Court entrance. Don’t think I have ever actually purchased anything there since the selection of stores are pricey but the surround sound system as you take the escalator to the food court is amazing for a shopping mall.
Guess Santa will be there soon.
It is located close to Universal Studios. I didn’t have time to stop at the MMall yesterday but I was surprised the Starbucks at CityWalk did not have the free red to go cups ,as not at all for those locations. Makes sense for inside the parks, but this makes me wonder if Disney Springs location did not offer them either.

We are not coffee drinkers, but they have some good teas available, so we often go in while at Disney to get a tea and one of their breakfast sandwiches and a pastry or two. I accumulate gift cards throughout the year via gifts and fun prizes at office events, so those usually provide us with a free breakfast or two, which makes it all taste even better.

As a leader for a Starbucks the answer is no. It may come back right after the Christmas season but it wasn’t a big hit last year

I went yesterday morning for my free cup and first holiday drink of the season. I was shocked at how many people were crammed into Starbucks. I love a crème brulee latte, the free cup was a bonus, and I was surprised to see that at 8AM they were almost out already. It really is kind of brilliant though. I would not have stopped in Yesterday had they not been giving out the cups. I also almost never end up at Starbucks after 2 pm, but now knowing I can save 50 cents on my over priced macchiato I"ll be back often through the end of the promotion date. I think I'm exactly their demographic. Christmas loving super Busy working mom with a soft spot for foamed milk and caramel flavor. Known to buy anything if I think it is a deal.

Starbucks is the new Philip-Morris

People are hooked, the R&D on your product is about nothing. Just watch the profits come in. Just look at the share price of SBUX over the past 20 years compared to altria.

Yep, I’m not that picky. But definitely no sugary crap.

Iced or hot. Just a little milk, otherwise black is absolutely fine. Occasionally I’ll get an Americano or espresso.
McDonalds does brew a fair cup of joe. And the price is nice!

Here too! They’re all a bit different and sometimes I get a craving for one in particular. Caribou Coffee is another I often enjoy..... when traveling.

The price is really nice if you’re a Senior.


Around here we have another brand, Bigby Coffee. Local Michigan company. I LOVE their mocha beverages. Either extra hot in the winter or frozen in the summer. MMMMMMMMMM
