    Re: Good riddance Starbucks

    I saw a taste test on FOX Saturday Morning Show and the coffee's tested were Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, McDs and another I can't remember. I think 3 of the 5 chose Dunkin Donuts and the other 2 McDs. Not good news for Starbucks considering that is what they do.

    Starbucks doesn't sell coffee. They sell an experience.

    Everyone knows that you don't go to starbucks,or as I call it 4 Bucks, to get a cup of coffee. You go there to get a caramel double chocolate mocha latte cappucino thing with whipped cream that tastes more like an ice cream sundae with a hint of coffee.

    And I can do without the Starbucks "experience." The experience is crappy music and over priced beverages.

    Re: Good riddance Starbucks

    McCafe coffees are just as good, but not a lot cheaper. Atleast if I go to Starbucks I don't have the urge to eat a load of crap for breakfast.

    I don't go there. My coffee comes from Kum and Go, but that is the reason people go there. The coffee is good, but McD's is just as good.

    I'm so glad I don't drink coffee. What a pain in the butt to need it to function everyday.

    I have managed to avoid that habit as well. I do now drink it when its provided at certain meetings however to ward off the eventual yawns from 3-4 hours of sitting on my butt. I started developing a taste of the sugary cappucinos while driving to Co overnight. I prefer them to coffee but I'm sure the amount of sugar and fat in them in sad. I can't drink undoctored coffee though still.


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.

    Not a pop drinker either here...sort of the same concept as needing the coffee. To each their own though. Glad I don't have either dependance.

    To each their own right?

    I personally like Starbucks and McD's coffee.

    Re: Good riddance Starbucks

    McDonalds had a mobile McCafe cart this weekend and were making them for free at the Des Moines farmers market. I didn't wait in line but people were saying good things about them.

    I love the glorified hot chocolates they sell at gas stations.
