I swore I wouldn't bother with this drink: the Starbucks Skinny Peppermint Mocha. Why? Well, the last time Starbucks had a sugar-free mocha option, I tried it and recall that it sucked, badly. Sugar-free mocha powders and sauces aren't easy to perfect, the flavor is either too sour or just not right. (That's what I said, Just Not Right. There. That's my non-foodie opinion.)
I get around this by using REAL unsweetened cocoa powder at home and concocting my own mocha with sweetener -- and at 'bucks -- my standard drink is an Iced Venti Soy Americano with 1-2 pumps real mocha with Splenda. Because - the sugar-free mocha has never been an option - until now.
Yesterday I ordered a Skinny Peppermint Mocha. Peppermint + chocolate = heaven for me, combining both is a perfect duo and should be the World's Most Bestest Espresso Drink EVER.
But, in my coffee?
