Dear Starbucks….

Dear Starbucks…

You are wonderful. Especially this time of year when the heavenly smells of Pumpkin Spice and Salted Caramel lure everyone to the closest location.

But I have a problem…my two favorite drinks at Starbucks are released during the SAME SEASON! So every time I go to Starbucks between September and December I am faced with the daunting decision between a Pumpkin Spice Latte or a Salted Caramel Mocha!



It’s like choosing who your favorite child is! Even though I’m not a mom myself, I’ve heard you can’t do that…


There’s the SCM- the drink that had me at hello when Starbucks released it way back when (like 4 years ago…haha!). You really can’t go wrong with sea salt caramel and chocolate. It’s sad that this drink has to live in the shadows of the PSL every fall season…

But then the PSL is so wonderful too! Definitely erring more on the Spice side than Pumpkin (which is why I love it so), this drink DEFINES fall! It’s crunchy leaves, hayrides, Oktoberfests, tall boots with skinny jeans and fabulous scarves all wrapped up in one drink! (except none of those things are in a PSL for real…that’s just gross! :) )

So Starbucks, I love you, but may I suggest switching the Salted Caramel Mocha to a different season or better yet add it to your all year menu! I’m pretty sure everyone enjoys Salted Caramel all year long :). That way I can enjoy them both equally.

Thank you Starbucks…and I will be seeing you soon!

-Sara Beth :)
