It sure pays to be a "regular" at Starbucks (to have him RECOGNIZE ME) and sneak me a gingerbread latte a whole DAY before it is supposed to "come out". I'm embarrassed to say JUST how excited I was and how I sorta begged him to do me this one favor and "puh-leeze" could I get one today???
Mmmm...the nutmeg-y taste makes me think of Thanksgiving and pumpkin pie. Aaaaaahhhhh....
Oh, and I must make a confession to everyone who knows I'm doing Weight Watchers. I was so surprised that he was really going to let me have one that I never even told him how I wanted my drink (grande non fat gingerbread latte w/NO whipped!). After he had already started to make it I managed to blurt out, "SKIM MILK?!?!" He smiled and shook his head and said, "2%". Who was I to argue, especially when he was doing me a favor? But I DID scream out, "NO WHIPPED!" just as he was about to squirt it out. LOL
And OMG, I just wrote an entire post about Starbuck's Gingerbread Lattes.
