Cinnamon cappuccino. It's becoming a serious addiction.

mm, that new frozen mint chocolate frappacino. YUM!

I love regular mochas in the winter, but all summer I was addicted to the Starbucks passion tea lemonade. MMMMM!

I like the Gingerbread Lattes from Starbucks. They are only available during the holiday season.

softdrink said...

Soy green tea latte...it tastes good and it's a pretty color (if you like green). ;-)

Katiebabs said...

Dunkin Donuts Large Skim Caramel Latte. At around $3, you can't beat that!

Holly said...

OH! I LOVE coffee. My only real vice. :-) I see a Starbucks and the car just sort of drives itself over there. :-)

I have a couple drinks that I rotate between: non-fat vanilla latte or 2-pump white chocolate mocha (otherwise its too sweet for me), and in the summer green tea frappuccinos! YUM! Oh man, now I'm craving coffee...thanks!

I love coffee... Can't live without it!

Caramel frappuccino is my favorite from a regular coffee shop, though I try not to indulge myself too often due to cost / calories.

Running side by side with it is the Caramel Moo-latte (Hey, it has coffee!) from DQ. 3/4 coffee, 1/4 soft serve ice cream, blended together with caramel. Yummy sinful goodness!

Jena said...

I like their steamers. I can't drink Starbucks coffee drinks (or coffee drinks in general) because they upset my stomach. But Starbucks especially; people have told me it's the acidity of their coffee. (It wasn't always so--I drank lots of Frappaccinos during my time in grad school.) I don't even like the tea at Starbucks.

So you may wonder why I'm bothering to comment here. Well, my sister is about to have her first kid (any day now), and my BIL is defending his dissertation this fall. And they both love Starbucks. So if I win, I'd like to have it sent to them, 'cause I think they'll need it. And they can use the Amazon card to buy some board books for little Ella (who's apparently already got a mind of her own; she's turned herself sideways and they're trying to reposition her so my sister doesn't need a C-section).

Kristin said...

Just a mocha or a white mocha is my favorite.

Loving this giveaway!

Kim said...

I usually drink tea -- Chai Tea Lattes are my favorite :)

Venti Soy Latte (w/ vanilla soy instead of vanilla syrup).

I've been drinking so many of those that I've filled two punch cards in two months (which is a lot for me).

Amy said...

Carmel Frappucino all the way for me. If I am feeling like I should be good then I will skip the whip.

Anne said...

Whenever I have to spend hours and hours at the airport (a frequent occurrence when traveling these days), I "reward" myself with a Starbucks java chip frappaccino "light" (no whipped cream). Yum!!!

mari said...

I LOVE the pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks when they come out in the fall. Soo good. Usually, I have plain ol' skinny lattes.

Sheri said...

At Starbucks, I'm the Iced Green Tea drinker. I know, not coffee, but it's really yummy... plus, green tea helps you lose weight. Ah, thank God!

bestbookihavenotread said...

I love a good old vanilla latte. Love your posts and contests! What fun!

Deborah said...

i love the peppermint mochas too!

Cathy said...

For me it's Starbuck's Mocha Frappacino, with whip, of course.

Alyce said...

My favorite is a Mocha with whipped cream.

lindymc said...

A great book of historical fiction along with an iced hazelnut frappaccino (sp?) is my idea of perfection.

Callista said...

I don't really like coffee but I LOVE iced cappuchinos. Especially from Tim Hortons. The ones from Starbucks are pretty good too. I've bought iced cappuchinos in the middle of winter, with 2 feet of snow outside. Boy did I get some looks! LOL.

Alicia said...

I LOVE the grande soy caramel macchiato from starbucks! yummy!

My favorite this summer has been the Iced Cafe Mocha - chocolate and coffee, what more could you ask for?

Heather J. said...

tea for me, hot not iced (ice tea is a HORRIBLE idea!) ... Irish tea, English tea, Earl Grey, Darjeeling, that's about the extent of my tea love :)

allisonmariecat said...

Oh, I LOVE peppermint mochas! Our Starbucks used to only have them during the holidays, and I was delighted this year when they stayed on the menu year-round :)

fashion-piranha said...

The Peppermint mochas are the best! I love that you can get 'em year round, but Christmastime is best because they put the little red sprinkles on them. (I am pleased by simple things!)

Kris said...

my favorite coffee drink is a mint mocha frappacino. Yummy!!

Nicola O. said...

Living in Seattle, becoming assimilated into the coffee culture was inevitable!

I like coffee but LOVE tea. Does this still qualify me for the contest? At Starbucks I get the Chai Tea Latte. An Indian friend introduced me to Chai and I've been a fan ever since.

Rebekah (the_littleminx) said...

Ooh, pick me! Pick me! LOL

My favorite specialty coffee drink is probably the Starbucks Iced Carmel Macchiato. I also really really love their Pumpkin Spice Latte that is back for the fall/winter season. Mmmmm

Venti Dulce Cinnamon Latte w/ Skim Milk and No Whip!

rjsbooklady said...

I like peppermint mochas, also. I like them so much, in fact, that our store's cafe manager ordered extra peppermint at the holidays, and I had 3-5 peppermint mochas per week all the way up through August. Then the pumpkin spice came in, and I'm on a pumpkin spice latte binge.

April said...

I really like the peppermint mochas also, but my absolute favorite is Pumpkin Spice latte!!! They are back in season, so I am thrilled to death and anxiously awaiting my next visit to Starbucks, lol!!

Bluestocking said...

I love caramelized lattes.

I like Chai Tea latte myself.

Dina said...

I love different flavors, can't choose just one. :)

bookroomreviews said...

Oh I have this down pat, I love Starbucks!
Cafe Vanilla Lite Frappuccino! No Whip

tanabata said...

I haven't been able to drink much coffee lately so I usually go for a skinny iced matcha (green tea) latte but if I do have coffee it's a simple skinny latte (iced all summer) with perhaps a shot of hazelnut if I'm in the mood for a bit of sweet.

Sandra said...

Iced Capuccino,yum!

Nise' said...

Hot Chocolate, Hot Teas, Caramel Apple Cider and Iced Green Tea.

Jen said...

I'm also a fan of hot chocolate, hot tea or hot cider...hmmmm

BookSweet said...

Peppermint mochas...hands down.

Red lady-Bonnie said...

My favorite coffee is Starbucks Cinnamon Dolce Latter or their Caramel Machiatto!
Yum, I'll be going their tomorrow to meet some friends and will be indulging!! Thanks for the great giveaway. BBAW has been a lot of fun already!!

Jackie B. said...

MMMMM! I love everything I have ever tried at Starbucks. Don't know which is really my favorite. Depends on my mood and if I want cold or hot at the time. I have never tried the Chai Tea so that will be my order next time I go. Thanks for a great giveaway!

Pamela Fierro said...

Technically, it's not a coffee drink. I just don't like to drink coffee. Love the smell of it, love the flavor it. But can't drink it. So my favorite "coffee" drink is actually a Chai Tea Latte. It's great at Starbucks, but the best one is actually at Panera Bread. (Shhhh! Don't tell Starbucks I said so!)

Kara said...

I love French Vanilla Cappuccinos.

Tammy said...

Yum, double chocolaty chip frappuccino blended creme, it's delicious!

bermudaonion said...

Just give me plain ol' coffee. This week has been so much fun so far - we forgive any mistakes you may have made.

blueviolet said...

I'm a tea drinker and at Starbucks I almost always buy the green tea. I'm just stuck on that for some reason. doot65{at}comcast[dot]net

Ooooh I love their caramel apple cider. My favorite specialty coffee drink (since cider isn't coffee) is the pumpkin spice lattes.

raych said...

When I feel like I need a treat, I like caramel macchiatos (sp?).

R said...

I like vanilla lattes the best, although around Christmas I have been known to indulge in the peppermint mochas.

Lenore said...

I don't drink coffee, but I like the smell of it. And I like Starbucks Chai Tea!

Maureen said...

I don't drink coffee but I love Starbucks tea.

Jessica said...

I usually drink iced mochas, but around the holidays, I love to order a hot gingerbread mocha. It feels like fall or winter to me.

Jennifer @ Quiverfull Family said...

Mmmm...coffeeeeeeee. Haven't been to Starbucks in...forever, but I sure like a Tim Horton's English toffee cappuccino, XL!

Wendy said...

Double Caramel Macchiato with extra caramel! Yummy - tastes the best on a cold, rainy day :)

In hot weather, mine is an Iced Sugar-Free Vanilla Two-Splendas Americano with just a bit of room for cream. Easy on the waistline and delicious!

Meghan said...

White mochas are about the only coffee that I enjoy, but they are sooooo delicious! I think your peppermint might be pretty good too, I'll have to try that.

sheistoofondofbooks said...

Definitely Starbucks HOT Chai Latte with "extra spice". Y'know "vente chai latte 9-pumper"

I like me a Caramel Frappuccino at Starbucks, but another coffee shop had one called something like Caramel Turtle Mocha that was past amazing. I dream about that drink sometimes.

Amanda said...

Oh My God. I'm so happy that it's fall again. I had coffee with a friend the other day at Starbucks, and I was so excited to see that the PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE is back. It's my absolute favorite, too bad it's seasonal. My next favorite is the white chocolate peppermint mocha at starbucks as well. Either that or the Teddy Bear at Biggby's.

I live for chai lattes! And they're best with vanilla syrup. Nothing makes me happier in the morning than a tasty vanilla chai (sweet and spicy in all the right ways!)
