Shhhh…..I think it’s love….


I think it’s love.  I really do.  Not sure if the hubs knows just yet.  🙂  You see, it started with a recommendation from a friend when we met at Starbuck’s the other day.  (I don’t drink coffee.  Ever.  It holds no appeal to me.)  But, meetings with friends are rare lately, so I told her I would be there.  Looking for an alternative to “coffee” anything, I spotted Salted Caramel Hot Cocoa on the menu.  Hmmm…..okay.  I like caramel & I like cocoa, so let’s give ‘er a go.  About 5 minutes later I was wondering if they offered free refills.  🙂  And the next day, I was back to order another one.  Ahhh, guilty pleasures.

Have you tried this?  Well, of course you have.  I am always a little slow at jumping on a bandwagon-I have no Chevron anything in my house, much less subway art.  Yeah, a little slow.  BUT, I’m on this one now!  Nothing like a $4 cup of caloric lusciousness!  (Mr. Starbucks said it would cost more if I wanted espresso in it, which made me thankful for my dislike of anything remotely “coffee”.)  Then, wonder of wonders, guess what I spotted at WAL-MART?!?!  THIS:

Oh. My. Word.  So, I can now have EIGHT mugs of wonderment for less than $6.  As opposed to ONE mug of fabulous for roughly $4.  Yes, please!

Today is rainy & nasty – perfect for a mug of cocoa.

So, excuse me if I slurp.  🙂  You should get one too, so I won’t be drinking alone.
