Weekly Rec: Starbucks Peppermint White Hot Chocolate
I am very susceptible to trying new seasonal drinks, but honestly, most Starbucks drinks are way too sweet for me to have more than once. However! I finally tried their Peppermint White Hot Chocolate on a whim and somehow . . . it's SO sweet that it comes back around to being okay? I'm not sure why - science? CHRISTMAS MAGIC? (I also have a higher sweetness tolerance for hot chocolate than for coffee drinks, I guess.) And when I say okay I mean RIDICULOUSLY DELICIOUS. It's not something I'd get often, but if you need to, say, have a big hit of sugar to get through a bunch of holiday shopping and deal with crowds? TRY IT.
