A while back, Seattle’s Best sent me a gift card for a drink. I finally got to the one location in NYC – in Manhattan Mall – and asked the lone barista to make me his favorite drink. We got to chatting and he mentioned that Starbucks owns them. That doesn’t bother me – I’m a Starbucks recovered addict (due to lack of funds, haha) – but I found it interesting that the line up of drinks seemed fairly different. He wound up making me a caramel macchiato type drink, iced, which I found overwhelmingly too sweet even after I told him to ease up on the sugar. Oh well – there’s only one Seattle’s Best in my city, and if I walked by, I wouldn’t hate going there… but I won’t go out of my way to find one, either.
Do you go to Seattle’s Best? Do you have a recommendation for a drink I’d like? Leave it in comments…
I received this $5 gift card courtesy of Seattle’s Best, but was under no obligation to post about it and received no monetary compensation to do so.
