I trashed my last cappuccino after taking one sip. I can't afford to waste my honest hard earned cash to line some shareholders pockets. I was a faithful customer maybe about ten years ago, but now they've lost me for good, I haven't stepped foot in another Second Cup since.

FWIW, I went to a Starbuck's with one of my kids on Saturday -- she (aged 16) likes their white mochas, what can I say? So I ordered an iced coffee -- how bad could it be, I figured? Coffee from the cooler, add ice -- I'd add some milk to reduce the bitterness and . . . HOLY $#|+ it's SWEET!!!
