And so the Eggnog is Gone for Another Year

If I have my choice of plain coffee, I choose Dunkin' Donuts, but if I want a latte or a flavored coffee drink then I am all about Starbucks. Those red holiday cups get me every year. There is something about Starbuck's bringing out the red holiday cups that puts me in the Christmas spirit.

I love, love, love the Eggnog Latte at Starbuck's. I seriously can't enough of them. I order it the same every time, Grande Skim Eggnog Latte 140 degrees. I get it at 140 degrees (or kid temperature) because I want to drink it right away. If I get it made normal then it is way too hot and I cannot stand burning my tongue. So, if you ask for it kid temperature then it is hot, but not so hot that you have to wait to drink it.

Today was the last day I could get the Eggnog Latte. I just lucked out that I went in today because after this they are gone for another year. :( I was informed though that the Gingerbread and Pumpkin Spice would be available through March though. Gingerbread, notsomuch, but OMG!!! Yummy Pumpkin Spice, which is another of my all-time favorites.

Do you frequent Starbuck's and what is your favorite drink?


  1. I wish I did frequent Starbuck's. I can't afford it. But I DO LOVE it when I can. Believe it or not, I love their iced tea in the summer. Guess that's a Texas thing! :)

    I love Dunkin Donuts coffee at home too. We buy a huge bag of it at Sam's. I love the way it tastes.

  2. I've always wanted to try eggnog! My mother tells me I "would haaaaate it." Mother knows best! :)

    I don't like coffee so I've very pick when I go to Starbucks. I normally settle for a white hot chocolate-- yummmm!
