Being a Starbucks Whore is a Good Thing

Registering your Starbucks card is just about the best thing you can do. From free syrup to having $5.00 magically appear on your card, the company rewards loyalty (even if they gouge you for coffee). This week, they sent me a little note advertising their new breakfast offering, oatmeal, and I could sample this for free! WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! So of course I'm in for this seeing that I love oatmeal a helluva lot. The serving ends up being 2 points and you can choose toppings of brown sugar (1 pt), dried fruit (2 pts) or a nut medley (3 pts). So off I went to get my americano and try this sucker out. It turns out who you get to prepare it matters as mine looked far too watery. I chose the fruit because I'm nuts enough as it is and sugar is kind of boring. It gave it a nice flavour but the oatmeal itself was really soup like. I honestly could have prepared it better on my own. It's a great option for something HEALTHIER on the run instead of a pumpkin scone (*swoon*). I'm all for it, just keep an eye on the barista making it.

I've been saying forever that I should start buying myself a monthly Starbucks card so as to better budget myself, and you've now given me yet another good reason to do so...free stuff! :)

Mmmm oatmeal.
Sounds yummy.
I'm sure this hurts your ears but I'm not a big Starbucks fan. I just can't get over the prices!
