Someone's been "drinking the Cool Aid" -- or Hot Chocolate as the case may be -- at Our Favorite Starbucks and something tells me it's Barista Amanda. She made the scene yesterday with a tray full of free samples and a Perfect Pitch. "How would you like to try our new Signature Hot Chocolate?," she asked, sweetly, "It's Rich, Creamy and Delicious with four kinds of chocolate and a sprinkling of Italian Salt." It looked like a Diabetic Coma in a Cup. "I'll take a pass," I said politely. A man sitting at a table near me couldn't resist. "I'll give it a try," he said. "You won't be sorry," she replied, smoothly, "It's Rich and Creamy!" He waited until Amanda was out of earshot before offering-up the following critique: "Oh my God!," he said, "It's so sweet ... I think I feel my cavities from ten years ago kicking-in!" As for me, I might just buy up Starbucks' full supply. Afterall, thanks to the Jittery Nutcase, Hot Chocolate has become a Weapon of Mass Destruction at 7th and Montana ...!
