GB, I've done that with vanilla ice cream.

Thanks Jkath for the suggestions. You try new stuff all the time. Sure never thought to drop it in coffee when fixing it. That way I could have my own! Do I feel dumb? Thanks. My dream is to taste Starbucks. Everyone talks about it. In the meantime, I will try to flavor my own.

In the Kitchen, there are two schools of thought on Starbucks. People either love it or hate it. I am in the "hate it" camp.

I have come to the conclusion that people who drink their coffee black can't stand Starbucks (for the most part) and people who put all sorts of things in their coffee love Starbucks.

I love coffee but I use the Purple Pill so I have to be careful how much I have, I use to have a cast iron tummy but I guess the lining is thinning out, So I just weight like a cast iron tub!

See everything works its way out !
If you need a smile, take mine, I'll make a new one.

I've actually used jell-o in my instant coffee mixes.

Another thought - for those of you who want a richer tasting coffee (who do indulge in sugar), brown sugar is really a great, warm flavor compared to white.

I only sweeten my coffee if it's an afternoon cup. In the morning, it's only got 1% milk in it.

I suppose we can all plant our coffey grounds and see if they grow.

I always used to put a chunk of candy cane in my coffee

ITK, sorry I missed your post. I get my Maple coffee from rockymountain roasters, they are a local company. I will see if I can find their link. They deliver door to door. The butter pecan is from Second Cup coffee which is exclusively Canadian. You can buy their stuff online I think.

I saw this morning that Cafe du Monde appears to be untouched. I don't think the French Quarter could even begin to recover without it!

LOTS of coffee comes into the port of N.O. - but lots of things come into the ports along the gulf. I saw yesterday that an entire boatload of bananas were lost either in Biloxi or Freeport. We can basically figure on any foods that come from South America are going to cost more until the ports can be reopened.
