Taste Test of the Week: Installment 1
Kelly and Urbana escaped to the country on Saturday. We made our first pit stop at Stew Leonards, the craziest supermarket of them all! There were samples of Thanksgiving dinner and Crab Rangoon there though, so we were psyched. Later we found nature and took a stroll through Rockefeller State Park. Pics to come. However, the important part of the story is, we were seriously craving a Starbucks Gingerbread Latte.
As the sun went down, we took a pit stop somewhere in the white plains area and found ourselves a Starbucks. Urbana ordered one Grande Skim Gingerbread Latte and a biscotti. Kelly order one Grande Pumpkin Spice Latte and a biscotti. The biscotti was delicious. The beverages, on the other hand, were not delicious. The gingerbread latte tastes like dirt. The pumpkin spice latte taste like sweet dirt. If Urbana may recommend a beverage to you, loyal reader, it is a regular regular, or go to your local coffee shop for a perfectly perfect latte.
Coffee, is not something to screw around with. It is our life blood and it better be damn good.
