Yes Starbucks way overpriced and too many of them.  What was once a periodic treat for people has now become a daily addiction.  I like a good cup of coffee too but I also don't want to pay an "arm and a leg" just to drink it.  I really only want the caffeine boost.  I work up the street from a Stagecoach and across the street from a Starbucks and around the corner from a Dunkin' Donuts but rarely go into any of them.  And is it just me or does the Dunkin' Donuts Orange Coolatta taste like  undiluted orange juice concentrate with extra sugar and extra ice?  But I admit I love it.

peace be upon you

Subhanallah, this thread saved me recently...

A teacher of mine and I tried to set up a brief meeting, since I was in his hometown. I wasn't familiar with the area I was in so he suggested meeting for a cup of coffee so he gave me the directions to a nearby Starbucks since I couldn't miss it for sure.

I don't drink coffee or any of that stuff, ever, but I was the guest so I said great. I've been to Starbucks before but have never ever had anything from there (the times I've been to Starbucks I just would be tagging along to give some company with some coffee-lover who had to get their fix).

When we meet at the Starbucks, he says hope you don't mind us going here (referring to the harambucks and all that). Wink So we go inside and I know that there's no way I can get out of this without getting something because he will insist, and I'm the guest anyways so I don't have much say. So I stare at this menu, with all these weird names. I not only dislike coffee but I don't understand all those different types and stuff. And what's with the sizes? Whatever I would get would be a small, but there is no small. There's "tall" and that is supposedly "small"? ???Strange, the other sizes had even stranger names.

I have no idea what to order. Then, as if through some type of inspiration, my eyes see "Frappuccino strawberries and creme". I think to myself, OK, I have no idea what a frappuccino is (I still don't), but I recognize that name from this thread, and apparently at least one person thinks it tastes like a Mcdonald's strawberry milkshake, so that was good enough for me.

Alhamdulillah, it did taste like a Mcdonald's strawberry milkshake, my teacher enjoyed his coffee and we had I nice conversation and the sacred ties of brotherhood in the ummah were cultivated...

Thanks Madina!!!...

looks like I found the answer to my question

http://inminds.com/boycott-israel.html

sister Faizah looks like you are gonna have to start trying!

But seriously that is alot of stuff to boycott, no? and those are not all. It turns out if you press on one of the companies you will find that company also owns many other companies' sheesh

but looks like what they say is true as it seems like they do alot of research on it and include links
