Last Friday, while killing time before catching the train home, I popped into Starbucks to pick up their new Blended Lemonade. While very refreshing, it tasted a little two sweet to me. Like syrupy. I don't think I'll have it again.

On the other hand, two days ago, I was killing time before my pedicure appointment and it was again, very warm outside. This time, I got their Strawberries & Cream Frappuccino. This was a lot better, but I had it before not it wasn't exactly new to me. Still, it's a treat.

I don't think I'll be cooling off with many more Starbucks beverages though, they're kinda spendy if you think about it.

I get what you mean. I think everyone's kind of cutting back.

A new blended lemonade? Hmm. Oh! Some Starbucks were going to start making smoothies, right? I'll have to check that out!

Girl, I work right across the street from a Starbucks and unfortunately for my wallet, I am there constantly. Some of my fave summer drinks are:
Passion tea lemonade with sweetener
Passion tea with raspberry syrup and apple juice
Iced Chai Lattes

Oh, I saw the blended lemonade and was wondering about it. I love love love black iced tea with lemonade but have to ask for it with only half the sweetner and it is still pretty sweet. I think I would gag on the full sweetened stuff!! :) ~j

Oh, and I had cut back too and hadn't had a starbucks in months until I got $35 in gift cards. Still trying to make it a treat and not an everyday thing, though! ~j
