Creme Brulee Latte aka My Best Friend!

I will be the first to admit, I am a coffee adict. Normally, I make my own coffee.I'm not high maintenance, you know. {wink} No sugar, no cream, just black, rich coffee. I like that strong taste of the coffee bean. I dont want to fluff it with sweets or dairy. No, not me.

Until, this week. My boss bought us all gift cards to Starbucks. At first, I thought.. "Ok, i'll use it for my regular, black coffee" But when I pulled up I noticed the Creme Brulee Latte. Just the name caught my eye. I decided to venture out and ask about it. The lady at the window told me "It's one of our Holiday specials. A rich, buttery flavor, whipped cream, with caramel candy on top. Hmm... maybe I could try that. {I guess I had a bit of a sweet tooth that day.} I did, though, tell her to please make mine Decaf with Soy and skip the whip. She told me "not a problem" I paid and headed out to try my new treat.

That first sip was glorious! I thought "How could I possibly have gone this long and never tasted this wonderfulness?" I've been every morning since then. And I will continue to go.....until my giftcard runs out because yes, I am that cheap. They are proud of their coffee!! But I will indulge and enjoy until the goodness runs out.


  1. I have been addicted to those this season too. I am not a big fan of Starbucks coffee because I don't like mine rich and strong tasting but one of my wierd pregnancy cravings is flavored coffee. I ventured to try that one and have LOVED it too!

  2. I found those last year and was depressed when the holidays were over.....thankfully they brought it back this year - I order mine decaf as well :). They are a little taste of heaven!!!

  3. Mine is the Gingerbread latte. My husband is creme brulee.

  4. Wow, a lot has changed since I found your new blog! Congrats!
