The first time I went to Starbucks was with Rob Daniels at least twelve years ago. When I walked in I asked him, “what do you like?” When he told me that he liked a “misto with almond” I ordered the same thing. And for the last decade or more that has been my usual. I will vary off that and get a frappuccino in the summer or some tea in the winter, but that is my usual. But that is all coming to an end. I have been informed at several Starbucks that they are discontinuing almond syrup.
Fortunately, at the Ground Level Cafe I will still be able to get my “cafe au lait with almond”; which is truly better than Starbucks!! But when I’m not at the Yellow Box I’m in big trouble. So, I’m looking for a new favorite drink at Starbucks. What are your recommendations?
