If you haven’t already, definitely try the shaken berry sangria herbal iced tea. So good!

I don’t go to Starbucks too often, but their vanilla sweet cream cold brew is very tasty!

I’m not much help since my go-to is black coffee but I’ve been enjoying the vanilla cold brew with coconut milk lately.

lula0508 :  Toffee Nut Lattes have been my favorite for just as long. 🙂

 

I also enjoy their graham latte, green iced tea and cold brew.  I know you said you don’t like their chai but I happen to like their dirty chai lattes.  It’s chai with a caffeine kick to it.

caramel macchiato with 2 pumps of toffee nut syrup added is my absolute favorite.

I also like vanilla bean frappucinos with an extra scoop of vanilla bean powder and a couple pumps of pumpkin spice in the fall. It tastes like pumpkin pie.

sparklesauce :  You totally can. You can also express that to the barista and ask if you can try a little bit – I believe it’s pre-brewed that way. Just go at a non busy time and ask if it’s possible. I’ve found that as long as you’re not holding up a 40 person line, baristas are very accomodating.

When I want something hot I like their Londong Fog. It’s an earl grey teabag with vanilla syrup and milk. Sometimes they call it an earl grey tea latte.

sparklesauce :  Oh girl, I gotchu! Try to Oprah chai, it’s much more like the Dunkin Chai so if you like vanilla, get a vanilla Oprah Chai latte. yUMMMM

I love Starbucks! I find most of their drinks to be too sugary for my taste. I usually get a regular latte but a barista just introduced me to the doubleshot on ice which is espresso, a little bit of milk, and lightly sweetened. Yum! I’m going to get one now 🙂

sparklesauce :  I’m a Vanilla girl like you so I’m always a vanilla latte. I see no need to swtich it up…haha. Although in the summer my BFF turned me on to the Vailla Beach Creme Frap….they are sooo yummy.

sparklesauce :  If you try the sweet cream cold brew, ask how it’s made.  Some stores seem to put vanilla syrup in the drink, and some stores don’t.  I’m not actually sure what standard is for it.  But it’s not that sweet if they don’t put the syrup in- the “vanilla sweet cream” is tasty but not very sweet on it’s own.

Just experiment with different syrup combos…toffee nut is delish in the white mocha, vanilla and hazelut are good together, and if you like the fruity you can try raspberry with vanilla or white mocha.  Don’t be afraid to ask for specific pumps of syrup- standard # of pumps is 2,3,4,5 (short, tall, grande, venti) and if you ask for two flavors they put in full pumps of each!  So a grande raspberry white mocha would be 4 pumps white mocha and 4 pumps raspberry.  That’s a lot of syrup!  So always ask for what you want- they’ll make it!

I always get a white chocolate iced mocha from Starbucks. 

My issue with Duncan Donuts- why do they put the sugar in AFTER the ice?! Sugar doesn’t melt in cold liquid. It make for a crunchy drink!
