Friday was busy busy with The Boy heading off to India and what not. This is how I found myself relying on Starbuck’s for breakfast. As I waited in line, I noticed they had a new ‘deal’ going on – a tall latte and either oatmeal or reduced fat cinnamon coffee cake for $3.95. Trying to do the math in my head and decide if I even wanted a latte or not, I just went for it. They include nuts, dried fruit, and brown sugar ( all in individual packets) with the oatmeal.
Well, I was dissappointed. Shocker. The nuts tasted rancid. I realized this after I dumped the packet into my oats. Taking it back was just too much effort. Blah. Maybe if I hadn’t had the nut issue? The dried fruit was a nice little mix and tasted fresh.
I wouldn’t order this again. I should have went with the coffee cake. Thats what I get for trying to be healthy.
Apparently, Starbucks has some other $3.95 breakfast pairings on the table. The ‘bucks I frequent does not carry the breakfast sandwiches.
Don’t worry, I supplemented the blech breaky a few hours (minutes?) later with some Thin Mints.
