do not remove French vanilla capucchino, do not pass GO, do not collect $200.

Ok, to anyone that doesn't know, I love mint chocolate chip.... anything, pretty much. I have mint chocolate chip icecream in the dorm freezer, I have mint chocolate chip chapstick in my coat pocket. But mint chocolate chip cappuchino?!

One would think this would make me happy.

But yesterday, it infuriated me.

My journalism lunch buddy Amanda and I went to get our usual cappuchino to dip cookies in, and, low-and-behold, there is NO french vanilla cappuchino! That's what we always get. Instead, it is replaced with mint chocolate chip.

After freaking out a little, we decided that i would try the mint chocolate chip, and Amanda would attempt to mix "regular" with creme packets of French vanilla.

(Let me just say that "regular" ought to be replaced next time they want to replace something. Its awful.) I tried the mint chocolate chip and it was.. alright. But it wasn't french vanilla.

We talked about it the rest of the lunch period, and even put in the feedback box in the cafeteria for them to NOT (ever) remove French vanilla. Ever.

HAHAHA. Karissa, this is great. Yeah I love the French vanilla cappuchino too and I would think drinking mint chocolate chip would just be, to put it bluntly, weird. Ice cream is good, chap stick is ok, but cappuchino. What are those cafeteria people thinking? French vanilla is always the best. Good blog (Great title too) Karissa. I agree.

I didn't get to do my entry on this catastrophe. Too much to do...so little time, but it is all coming together.

I guess I'll have to put aside my blogging obsession for just a little while longer. Sigh.

But then again...I have other things (hehehe) on my mind.

How's everything with the Swiss man?

I love mint chocolate chip also!! Its so yummy in my tummy... mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm! Go to Sheetz and get their French vanilla cappuchino, it is the best. Comments in the feedback box always help, I am sure when they are getting negative ones about the new "change" they'll "change" it.

My favorite kind of coffee product is, Starbucks French vanilla frappachino... I would die without it, I know the feeling Karissa & Amanda!!

Hmm. I was very excited about the return of Mint Chocolate Chip! Of course, I'm a-double-l-e-r-g-i-c to the vanilla...

oh, well that can't be good! I don't know what I'd do if I were allergic to the vanilla... I'd probably drink it anyway, gte tragically ill and ide, or something along those lines... ;)
