Starbucks Sex




On Stacy's reccomendation, I am at this moment drinking a Chantico.

Holy mother of god, this is good. When they say it's like drinking a truffle, they mean it. It's a liquid orgasm. Seriousy. That good. Unlike a real orgasm, I think I can handle only one of these every few weeks. Multiples Chantico-gasms would just make me keel over and die.

And I never, ever want to know how many calories is in this thing, so don't tell me. Let me just enjoy my momentary bliss.

There are NO calories. If you begin to feel as if your pants are getting tight on you, you can rest assured that it is not the fault of your hot Chantico-gasmic beverage. Science has determined that Chantico-gasms are, in fact, a valid form of strenuous exercise that not only helps you lose weight, but also increases the drinkers lifespan by 27 days with every 16oz. cup consumed.

Plus, pants shrink after every wash. Everyone knows that.

Well, dammit, there's no Starbucks within walking distance of moi, and I don't feel like slogging through the sleet/snow/rain/mess anyway. But maybe tomorrow....I need me some 'o dat chocolatey goodness.

My sister actually made a special phone call from Starbucks yesterday, calling me at work to tell me how incredible it was.

Brat!

I have yet to try one, but if we actually make it out into the rain today, I'm getting one.

Oh, great. It's not bad enough that I'm hooked on Caramel Machiattos with extra caramel.

I'm so very lucky, too....there is a drive-through Starbucks within two miles of my house.

I see errands in my immediate future....

OK,i'm unclear if there is any coffee in this or not.Or is it simply a chocolate drink?

I blog out of the Princeton Starbucks, so the staff scored me a free sample just the other day. It reminded me of the hot chocolate, if only that term gave it justice, that I had on San Marco Square in Venice as a teenager. It was the best stuff I'd ever had, and I have often wondered why I hadn't encountered an attempt to duplicate it in the United States.

Now I have.

Oh, that thing is to DIE for!

Especially if you add a dash of cinnamon and stir it in.

Mmmmmmmmmmmm.

The only thing better is if you take godiva chocolate, melt it, add a little whipping cream, a little cinnamon and nutmeg, pour into a mug and drink that up.

Michele, I hate you. Until I saw this, the only time I had ever ventured into a Starbucks was to listen to some friends of ours who had a blues band. We dropped more money to the band in tips in any one evening than I ever spent in the place in all the weeks we came in to listen.

Now you're going to be responsible for my doubling my lifetime Starbucks total spending.

You're dethththtpicable.

hey,

StarBucks. Addiction. Bad. I honestly think Starbucks alone will lower the life expectancy of American's by a couple of years. My own life included. I'd also like to point you guys to this new blogging site I've started.

Well, there's always got to be one, and today, I guess it's my turn.

Starbucks sucks. Seriously. I've always been amazed that people are willing to shell out those kinds of bucks on the swill they dispense and have the gall to call 'coffee'. Hideous brew.

Ok, let the gravel dancing commence.

I hate Starbucks coffee. It's like drinking dirt. Drinking chocolate, however, is a different story.

(full disclosure - I also like the frappacinos or whatever they're called - the cold drinks with whipped cream and caramel)

Um.
All my orgasms are liquid...

Dan

Just had one this morning.

Yikes. Whatalotachoklit.

Seriously, I won't be having another one. It was too strong for me. Two minutes after I finished it, I got a really nasty bitter aftertaste. It's now three hours later, and I still have that aftertaste lingering like a faint shadow.

Interesting experience, though. It WAS a lot like drinking a melted truffle.

Does it have any coffee flavor in it? Or is it something to draw in the chocolate-loving, coffee haters like me?

No coffee in it, it's pure chocolate. But the chocolate has a slightly weird taste to it, too cocoa-y maybe? It wasn't quite what I expected. Good, but I still like the caramel whatever better.

And man it is filling. The size of that cup in the pic is deceptive, it's a small cup. And yet after you drink it, you realize you just had lunch.

Starbucks is really really really really shit in Australia. I can only hope its better there than here. Here it tastes like they have mopped up with a sponge and squeesed it into your cup.

:)

dang it, i went for the peppermint mocha this weekend. after reading your post, i MUST have a cuppa orgasm.

For me to drink coffee it has to be top-shelf stuff, (preferably a Colombian light roast), and Starbucks just doesn't do it for me. But I will have to give this a try.

After reading this post, why do I imagine myself as the old woman in the deli scene from 'When Harry Met Sally'??

'I'll have whatever she's having.'

I had two the first time I tried it, the person I was with took one sip pronounced it great and would not take any more. It reminds me of hot chocolate made by my grandmother.

I'll have to try one next time. Sex in a cup. What will those crazy Starbucks folks come up with next?

On Christmas Eve, I had my heart rebuilt with spare parts from my legs. I think perhaps I'd better stay away from these babies.....!

Oh, it's chocolate. Can't eat chocolate. Bad headaches. At least there's one temptation in this world that I'm immune to.

"It rubs the Chantico on it's skin, or else it get's the hose again!"

Science has determined that Chantico-gasms are, in fact, a valid form of strenuous exercise that not only helps you lose weight, but also increases the drinkers lifespan by 27 days with every 16oz. cup consumed.

Umm, have you actually sampled the Chantico yet? It comes in a little cup not too much bigger than a shot (6oz at most), and believe me, that's plenty for one sitting, even for a big guy like me. If you drank 16oz of Chantico at once, your brain would melt and your stomach would scream audibly, rendered overwhelmed and helpless by the impenetrable waves of chocolate. o_0 p.s. what, exactly, is Chantico? Is it literally just melted chocolate? I'm going to buy a cup and stick it in the fridge to see if it solidifies into a solid lump at room temperature (as it is served very hot when you get it)...
