When you live in Seattle, you have to pick a side. You’re either a Starbucks customer or a frequent local coffee shop go-er. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love supporting the locals more than anything, but when it comes to Starbucks, we get a little personal. I had my first Starbucks drink when I was eight years old. I played hooky from school so that I could join my uncle for “Take your son/daughter” to work day. Yeah – whatever my parents didn’t want me following them all day so they let me tag along with my uncle. I like to call this my “first job.” I shredded papers. But before I hit the work day, my uncle took me to Starbucks and bought me my first drink – a tall hot chocolate. Because of this sweet memory, I’ve never truly been able to look back or move on from them! I don’t know if I ever could.
I’ve got a special crush on Starbucks and now that crush is about to become full-on lust. Tomorrow, the chain will be releasing their new line of pastries called La Boulange, which includes my favorite pastry of all – the chocolate croissant! Watch me buy out all of them at 8:20 AM.
