I am not generally a Starbucks coffee drinker. I don’t have anything against them, although the Starbucks in the Forbidden City was a bit distressing, they are just not the first place I tend to turn for my cuppa joe. I do however love their peppermint mocha. It as much as anything these days signals the start of the holiday season with its red festive cup and green festive cup holder. I know, I know, it goes against everything I stand for as far as trying to be more green. I can’t help myself. I also know that they are not a low fat treat. I tried one with skim milk the other day and it was terrible. So I guess I am just going to have to understand that this is a treat and I can’t do it everyday.
