Starbucks happy hour

To promote their new “however-you-want-it” Frappuccino options, Starbucks is holding a happy hour from 3 to 5 p.m. through Sunday, May 16, at participating locations.

Get your favorite Frappuccino for half-off and get options like decaf, no whip, soy, lowfat milk and more.

I don’t drink coffee but I do love ice-blended cappucino beverages so I took advantage of happy hour yesterday.

But it made me wonder if this was more of a counter attack towards McDonald’s for recently releasing their McCafe Frappe’s, their own ice-blended sugar and caffeine loaded drinks.

I got to try the McCafe Caramel Frappe a few weeks ago and my first thought was it was way cheaper than Starbucks. The small was $2.29 and it was bigger than the “small” at Starbucks.

I’m caffeine sensitive and don’t need much to get me going so it was perfect for me.

Those who need a bigger shot of caffeine may not be satisfied with the small or even the entire drink altogether.

Might as well take advantage of Starbuck’s Happy Hour while it lasts.

  1. Some time ago, I needed to buy a good house for my business but I did not have enough cash and could not order anything. Thank goodness my dude adviced to take the business loans from reliable creditors. Hence, I acted so and used to be happy with my commercial loan.

  2. I do consider all the ideas you have introduced for your post. They’re really convincing and can certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are too brief for beginners. May just you please extend them a bit from next time? Thank you for the post.

  3. I have a confession to make.Thank you for comtenming on my blog, but it was by lurking here, at yours, very early this morning, that I got the idea for doing this quiz!Ooops.I always read here – sorry I don’t comment so often.
