Well, It's Over...

The red cups are gone. At least until next year. Starbucks has replaced them with these brightly colored and cheerful Tazo tea cozies. I'm not fooled. It's like they anticipated that people would be disappointed when they took the holiday ones away - you know, the letdown that we all feel when that time of year is through. I think they thought that the new cozies would somehow get us through that transition - kind of like how Kate was sad that the Christmas tree came down and I told her that Valentine's Day was almost here and we would have soooo much fun picking out Valentines for our friends. She just needed something to look forward to. So, if you're down, head on over and get yourself a fix. They still have Peppermint Mocha and that luscious Espresso Truffle I fell in love with this year, but you might want to just get over it already, order a coffee with cream and think about whatever you're looking forward to next.

Love, Mikele

Why is it that the exact same drink can taste better in a certain cup? I know how to make some of those concoctions at home now but they just don't taste the same unless they are in THE cup. It is clear that I have an obsession, I am aware of that!

Usually, I am not excited to see the red cups go. However, this year I am happy to see them go because that means we are that much closer to warmer weather in NYC!

Red cups are still being used on the WESTSIDE! Jon got one yesterday. :)

Come on over. I'll find you a red cozy and have Ben bust our his stolen Starbucks apron. It will be just like you were there. I might even have snagged a box of those truffles at Target on 75% clearance.

I tried to order my signature hot cocoa and it just didn't taste the same without the red cup, maybe in AJ or SPV they still have those cups???

Do they even HAVE Starbucks in AJ, Heather?

I got a Tazo Cozy myself yesterday. I think my cup actually needed 2 with the negative 7 temp :)

I don't have anything witty to say, I just feel like I must leave a comment - I'm #13 (#15 if you are counting the deleted ones).

It seems my language skills need to be strengthened, because I totally can not read your information, but I think this is a good BLOG
