Starbucks Via

    Okay, this stuff is worse than crack. A friend sent me some and I am hooked. It's the new instant coffee from Starbucks and it tastes like "real" coffee. It's expensive stuff so when this stash runs out I'll have to stop drinking it.

    I have to stop drinking it though because I'm getting into stupid arguments in both the politics and religion forum and I'm letting them get to me. The coffee makes me very edgy...

    I really have to stop smile

      I don't think it sounds that good, I mean instant coffee? Maybe I'll have to give it a try. Once can't hurt, right? ;-)

      I bought some the other day. it does taste like the real thing, and it's strong. I was up all night the other night. roll
      those forums are like dark alleys... can be like walking into a IED area... hmm

      We've been through this before about your "problem" with the Politics and Religion forum. I've threatened an intervention but you said you could handle it yourself. Now your blaming it on instant coffee from Starbucks. Really....

        and stay away from the Dunkin Donuts muffins and anything else that are NOT in a glass case or otherwise protected - they're the playground of flies from about April through November.   mad

    It actually is very good. But it costs like $10 for 12 cupfuls.

    Beware... big_smile

      Gosh, I miss Starbucks! $10 for 12 cupfuls is not bad. Can you send them over UW? smile I don't participate in those two forums so have no problem with being edgy big_smile

    I'm already hooked on the regular starbucks..I don't think I'll try the instant, it looks like that is even more expensive sad

    It's an invasion!  I'm hooked on the signature coffees....can't go without one per day!!! UGH!!  Did try the instant in their blind taste test, and I did taste the difference.  Even shocked the lady when I told her which was which!  It is pretty good for instant...but I'm too hooked on the regular stuff already!!

    The Via is okay, but I prefer to grind the beans. I am a true Starbucks addict.

      I'm a sucker for grinding my own beans too. I just love that fresh fresh smell! smile

    I think that's rather clever, UW. Blaming religion and politics forum temperatures on Starbucks! LOL I think that could be a very clever hub, btw. I don't suppose iced coffee would cool anything off, however.

    I had to take an extended breather from those forums myself. There's nothing like good politics and religion and these forums are nothing like good politics and religion. LOL

    (Take some inositol and choline to calm the jitters. It works and it's natural. Just an idea.)

    Yup a good scotch in the starbucks and you won't even care what type of garbage they're dishing out in the politics and religion forum.
