How long has this been going on?

Okay, I don't go to StarBucks often but today it was cold and damp in West Hollywood and bought a cup of Refresh Tea at StarBucks before yoga class. When did they change the logo and the look of the Starbuck's mermaid? She is brown on longer green and with two tails not one. Still charge you way too much for tea and coffee. I really get upset when I see kids buying these overpriced sugar coffee drinks. We're rasing a gen of caffine junkies. Plus, does anyone realize how many calories must of their sweet lattes cost? When bottoms up.

I was just there and don't remember the change! How odd? It looks nautical now.

I think caffeine is one of the worst things for people's diets, I really do. I just don't like people using even natural stimulants to get through the day and if you think that's bad, iced coffees when it comes to calories are the worst!

Also the money people spend on these specialty drinks...they should really learn about The Latte Factor.

OK, off my soapbox now!

I love coffee, but can't drink it. I stopped when I realized I was unable to write with my fingers because they were trembling so hard. Particularly unhealthy at my age!

It irks me to see people spend upwards of 12 bucks a day on these frozen coffees. Especially those that always complain they have no money :)

I think folk get addicted to the smell. But it's totally too expensive.
