StarBucks VS. Second Cup

Yummy Stuff | Oct 11, 2007 11:31 AM

I have been so disappointed in Second Cup lately I only tried some of their stuff coz i had a gift card and some BoGo coupons. I really don't understand why they're everywhere in Quebec now... I tried a couple of there summer drinks & I was fooled because their Passion Green Tea Chiller was actually decent but on other occasions when i purchased their over $4 Chocolate granita or their Strawberry Lemonade I honestly have had better tasting slushies than their water downed tasteless Chillers. Last week I got to taste their butter pecan drip coffee (had a sip off my aunt) and that was ahright.

If I'm not at my local independent cafes I definitely go over to StarBucks and pass right by a Second Cup Oh and the new one that opened up by my house, I had a raspberry white choco scone that tasted of cigarette smoke Um how the heck? when all the establishments now are non-smoking ~ yes I remeber when we use to have a Dunkin nearby back in the day when u got your donut late in the day it would sometimes taste like smoke coz of all the Smokers in there
But c'mon Second Crap Cup get it toghether even their tea bags aren't worth it. I've had better tea at Tim Horton's (and I don't even like their donuts just their <Gourmet Tea> selection
