I’m a longtime Starbucks addict, I admit it. But, my Starbucks addiction is not wallet-friendly. It’s particularly hard to pass up the elaborate drinks Starbucks showcases during the holiday season, because they’re just so sweet and frothy. It was hard enough when Starbucks unveiled its pumpkin spice latte (“PSL”) for the fall season. Now, the peppermint mocha has been unleashed on coffee addicts (such as myself) as the post-Halloween Christmas rush gains momentum.
