Starbuck's Descriptions Follow:

The Starbucks Blurb:

Fall is full of drizzles. Drizzles of rain as the air cools, students reluctantly drizzling back to school, emails drizzling into your inbox … but not all drizzles dampen our spirits.

Take for instance the drizzle of buttery caramel layered over sweetened whipped cream on our Salted Caramel Mocha. No rainy day could dampen sitting down with a good book and one of those. So why add the salt? Well, there’s no better way to excite your taste buds than with a little sprinkle of salt just before something sweet.

A tiny bit of our premium sea salt and sugar topping deepens the rich flavors in this luxurious combination specially made to warm up the rainy days of fall.

Did you know?

Salty and sweet flavors are called "appetitive" where bitter and sour flavors are called "aversive.”

The Dame Says :

It's not good to fool with Mother Nature's desires to ease our stress and give ourselves some happy moments of refreshment while reading.  I think it's imperative to have a great accompaniment with Fall reading, especially.  The weather just begs it.  I'm only suggesting this may be a good one.

I've heard rumors that a Pumpkin Spice Latte is the gift of the Fall gods, too.  Which one is that, exactly? Well, here it is:

Espresso, pumpkin-flavored syrup and steamed milk.
Topped with sweetened whipped cream
and pumpkin pie spices.

What's your favorite fall weather drink for reading?

Soon to be Reviewed!

Have a yummy week, weekend, month to come...
