    I used to like them when I was younger, but now I find they are way too sweet for my tastes. And also ridiculously out of our budget!

    Either the pumpkin spice or peppermint mocha. Neither of which I can get here. Alas.

    Salted caramel mocha for me – yum.  I only got one this year before they switched over to the winter drinks.  Very bummed about that.  I do peppermint mochas throughout the year too. And yes, now I want Starbucks.  🙂

    I love Pumpkin Spice!  I don’t mind Caramel Brulee either, but it’s a bit too sweet.  I usually have to either cut back on the syrup or add more espresso shots. Which is fine by me.  🙂

    @GearBride:  They should still be making it even though it’s not on the menu boards anymore- usually the fall drinks (like pumpkin spice) is available until Christmas.  You should ask the next time you go!  As long as they have the salt topping, they can make the drink.  It’s just the toffee nut syrup and the chocolate syrup which sbux has all year round.  🙂

    @Audrey2_sings:  I will do this, thank you!  It’s funny, I’ve done that with some of their other seasonal drinks before but for some reason I thought that one had something else in it that they don’t normally stock.  I didn’t realize it was the toffee nut!

    I love a peppermint latte with soy milk. I got my boss hooked on them too!

    @Artificial-Sweetener:  My best friend works for Starbucks at their headquarters in Seattle, so he lets me in on secrets that are useful. He recommended using the seasonal syrups to my advantage.

    I don’t drink mocha’s, something about the chocolate and coffee lol…. But I love putting some peppermint in my skinny latte or americano so I love when it comes out!

    I do like the peppermint mocha coffee-mate, but that’s not ACtually chocolate 🙂

    I remember liking the pumpkin spice latte…and spilling it on myself like a klutz and staining everything orange bwuahaha. I can’t remember if I’ve tried the other drinks. Maybe I’ll have a peppermint mocha tomorrow.

    I’ve been hesitant to try them since I moved to the US from Canada. All the Starbucks around my area usually make their espresso drinks way too sweet, even for me, and I live for my sweet tooth!
