If Starbucks Did Springtime Seasonal Flavors
I’m not a betting gal, but I’d wager that there’s a bonus for the Starbucks employee who comes up with the wackiest coffee drink to feature in stores every fall and winter. It all started with the Pumpkin Spiced Everythings, and then somehow twigs and flan and stuff normally found in questionable trail mix started making appearances on the menu.
Now when I take my long walks through autumnal fields during the first snow of the season, I don’t know whether to sip my coffee as-is or add nature’s bric-a-brac from underfoot to my cup.
Alas, now spring is upon us, so the toasted nutty fruitcake Frappucinos and their friends have gone into hibernation. What will I drink now? And where are the Springtime selections?
Since I’ve yet to see anything on their fancy chalkboards that suits my fancy now that it’s finally sunny out, here are some of my suggestions that incorporate the springtime equivalent of cinnamonny tree bark lattes. Enjoy!
