Starbucks, here I come

I've had a lot going on recently and the poor people of Twitter have had to hear a lot of it as it goes on but I do have good news.

After searching for what felt like much too long, I had an interview that went well. I'm having a test shift at Starbucks to see how it goes. This will be my first time working at a proper corporate Starbucks and I'm looking forward to it.

And here's where I'm curious. I've noticed that mentioning it has had people tell me their favourite drinks. So... what do all of the few people who are reading this actually drink? (from Starbucks, or anywhere else that allows for custom drinks)

Congratulations, and good luck!

I don't do custom drinks, especially when it comes to coffee: I like to taste the coffee. I drink mine black with no sugar, but occasionally I'll have a cappuccino (or however you spell it) without sugar.

Thank you :)

You don't need to overcustomise it for it to count. I love basic cappuccinos (unsweetened). A place has to be pretty bad for me to sweeten a cappuccino. I just also like my very sugary drinks sometimes. Same with plain black coffee. It's a good thing.

The one time I went to a Starbucks was during a choral festival, after a 13 hour rehearsal, during a freak sub-freezing spell in March. I ordered a hot chocolate made with *white* chocolate. I LOVED it. I've never seen it since, and I keep looking for it. I've never even seen any kind of recipe or mix that uses white chocolate.

For the record, I hate coffee. I can (barely) stand French vanilla cappuccinos, but that's about it. I don't even like coffee ice cream or chocolate mochas or even the smallest amount of espresso/coffee in a chocolate cake. My family thinks I must be from another planet.

And - YAY!!!! for the test shift. Good luck and good vibes and crossed fingers and all that are being sent your way :-)

PS ~ I had a popple ball stuffie when I was a kid. I held onto that thing for years.... your avatar brought back a lot of memories. I miss my childhood 80s toys.

You can probably get a white chocolate hot chocolate at any time there. They have the syrup all the time for white mochas and could simply add it to milk without using espresso as well.

That's perfectly ok. You're not the only one I know who doesn't like coffee.

Thank you :)

I personally like decaf soy lattes, makes me a freak I'm guessing :-)

That's not my drink of choice but someone got one on my tester shift today. (a tall decaf soy cappucino, to be specific)
