I have never been in a Starbucks. It was just that I never happened to be around one but now it is a matter of principles.

Why can't they use a littler imagination? Here's an easy
recipe and they wont go broke buying these at Starbucks.

STARBUCKS PUMPKIN SPICED LATTE / allrecipes.com / makes three servings

Blender 3 cups hot whole milk, 4 tsp sugar, 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, 1/2 tea supermarket pumpkin pie spice.

Pour the mixture into 3 coffee mugs to about 2/3 full. Pour 2 ounces dble-strength coffee into each mug. Garnish each mug with whipped topping and pumpkin pie spice.

Add some cinnamon graham crackers on the side.

I don’t like pumpkin anything - except my own homemade pumpkin pie, of course. This morning, I heard two people at the gym talking about pumpkin beer...urp! They said it tasted just like pumpkin pie, which they seemed to think was a good thing.

You taste just like fall--
Sweet, spicy, pumpkiny--
When will you return?

Cruel fate of fall,
Not a lotta latte left--
Frothing at the mouth.

We spent a couple of weeks this August driving the Oregon Trail through Wyoming, reading pioneer diaries, looking at exhibits. I came away knowing that I need never whine again.

These guys need to hit the Hard Edge of Reality in a really bad way. Probably voted for Obama? Have they no LIVES??

The idea of a pumpkin latte SEEMS so cozy and delicious to me, because I love both coffee and the fall season. “Seems” is the keyword, though. I hate Starbucks coffee, but I gave in to the hype and bought a pumpkin latte once. The thing was so sickeningly, syrupy sweet I almost gagged, and ended up pouring it out. I bet the calorie and carb count of the thing rivals that of a couple of huge slices of cake with frosting.

"My world almost ended this morning when the local Starbucks told me they were out of Pumpkin Spice Latte,"

Wow. Someone needs to get a life.

At my local, independent (ie real) coffee shop, Starbucks is known as the BBCC, the Burnt Bean Coffee Company. I think that Starbucks over-roasts their beans so much that their coffee is undrinkable.

which costs about $4 for a small cup, or "tall" in Starbucks speak

Um, no. "Tall" is "regular". Starbucks does, in fact, have a "short" aka "small" cup at a lower price which is available on request, albeit not announced. If the store doesn't have it, they will often apologize and give you a "tall" at the same price.
