Starbucks!

Hello! I have a few things to mention regarding my recent Starbucks discoveries! As previously mentioned, I have a thing for Starbucks- if I could go there every day, I would (it is probably bad enough that my Starbucks crew and I know each other by name)! So here are a couple of my new discoveries!
1) The new Starbucks App, if you do not have the "gold card" you really should get one. You simply use/register your Starbucks gift card and when you order enough drinks, they will send you the gold card. The best news with the gold card is that you earn free drinks every 15 swipes. So...I now have my gold card registered on my Starbucks App so when I pull up they just scan my phone and I can see my balance, keep track of my drinks, check nutritional information (although, some things are better left unknown!), track my "stars", do a location search, etc.. It is a good, Free App!
2) It is not very often I venture out from my regular drinks- I mean...what if I don't like the new drink...Starbucks trip wasted! I was brave last week and wanted to try the Matcha Green Tea Latte- I love all of the benefits of Matcha Green Tea (you know I love green tea {LINK}) so I ventured outside of my box! I asked "Cindy" (my Starbucks friend) which one she liked, cold or hot and she suggested hot. I usually like my drinks cold but thought I should try it the best way first. Of course, sweet Cindy made both varieties for me to try and I can say this...it is an acquired taste! I is not my absolute favorite, but I will probably get the hot one occasionally and mix it into my line up- mainly for the health benefits. I get mine unsweet, so if you like sweet drinks, you might really like this one! I think I could get used to it if I apply myself! In case you don't know about Matcha, here is some fun info (as if Dr Oz saying he loves it is not enough!) Here is a link to the full info {LINK}
