Did you know Starbucks has a Frappy Hour? At 3:30 Frappucinos are half off.
I was sitting at Starbucks getting some work done on the trusty laptop when one of the barista’s on break asked the one behind the counter when Frappy Hour started. I’m not shy, so I inserted myself into the conversation to get all the deets. Well, sort of. I know it starts at 3:30 and I know they are half off. The rest is a little fuzzy. Is it an actual hour? Is it everyday? Is it everywhere?
I asked how long it lasted and they said about an hour depending on the weather. Not sure what that means. After doing a little googling, I have found very little information and nothing official, but some sites are saying it’s from 3-5. Anyway, sorry for the half-assed promo of half-priced coffee, but I had to tell you in case this unicorn is real.
3:30 is a great time to grab a Lite Frap for a pick-me-up and afternoon snack all rolled into one. I’m bookmarking that in the brain for a groggy, hot afternoon in the future.
Those mildly informative sites that Google generated did provide the happy little fact that the Lite Fraps are (or soon will be?) using stevia instead of other artificial sweeteners in the base. Yay for eating things from nature!
A final note for the morning, we tackled the whole pineapple lastnight and the Vacu Vin pineapple corer was a success! It’s like a corkscrew for a pinapple.
Just slice off the top and screw the slicer into the fruit making perfect rings.
They were a wonderful treat this morning with breakfast. Nothing better than fresh pineapple in my opinion. My fave fruit right out of the skin!
