Starbucks offers a wide variety of flavored beverages that incorporate mocha or chocolate in some form. Today, after a walk, I stopped at a Starbucks in Hercules, CA, for an Iced Peppermint Mocha -- which was refreshing and chocolatey-rich tasting. I liked the fact that the ice helped tone down the sweetness, and that the woman who served up this mocha offered to adjust the peppermint level, and fat level and type of milk. In the end, I stuck with the default options. Sometimes having these little choices gives me an odd sense of comfort. I'll admit it; I may not be able to control what's going on around me much of the time, but I can choose 1% or 2% fat milk in my iced beverage.
Today was Day #3 of Chocolate and Mint Theme Week.
