Earlier this month, Starbucks was running an excellent deal on Frappucinos. It was a half-off happy hour that I could enjoy with my daughter! Jenna loves Starbucks, as do I. She particularly loves Frappucinos and she was needing a haircut so I decided to make it a mother-daughter date one day after school.
Thanks to her youthful metabolism, Jenna ordered her Mocha Frapp full strength, whipped cream and all. I, on the other hand ordered a "skinny" version, sans the whipped cream, of their newest Frapp flavor.
The Mocha Coconut Frappucino is dessert in a cup. Mmmm, delicious toasted coconut adds genuine coconutty flavor. I was in heaven. Part of me wishes it didn't taste so good. Wishes that the flavor were off or artificial...Anything!
Perhaps the calorie count or the fact that the half price deal is now over with will keep me from indulging too often. Now if only there weren't a Starbucks in my local Target and Kroger....I'd have a much easier time resisting!
Disclaimer: Starbucks didn't pay me to say all of these nice things about their Frappucinos. In fact, they don't even know that I exist!
