Before you stop to get your fix every day (or twice a day, or three times...) stop and take a look at this. To recap, here's the things you need to know: - The average 18-34 year old will spend nearly $25 / week on coffee. That's $100 a month. - More than 200 million Pumpkin Spice Lattes were sold between 2004 and 2013. - Switching from a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte to a Dunkin Donuts Pumpkin Spice alternative can save you, on average, $1.28 per latte. - Brewing at home saves you even more! You can save about $1.55 per cup. - Starbucks made 10% more last holiday season, likely due to their introduction of even more specialty holiday drinks. So, if you need to save some extra money this holiday season, try changing your coffee drinking habits! *I cropped the photo for easier viewing; all credit goes to Mint.com and Killer Infographics.
For the last several years, I almost always make my own coffee at home. Although I am not big on artificial pumpkin flavorings, International Delights has a pretty decent tasting Pumpkin Pie Spice creamer.
@koffegurl @hikaymm I love international delight creamers. I usually get irish cream, but I'm going to check out the pumpkin pie
@koffegurl You and me both!! I hate artificial syrups for the most part (I honestly don't think I've had a pumpkin spice latte since I first taste tested it while being trained). But, I love the creamers that International Delight has!!
@csgeek I'm not a big Starbucks fan either. Too strong & too acidic. Then again I don't like a lot of "gimmick" coffees like Peppermint or Pumpkin Spice or Green Mint or anything like that. Just give me coffee, Mochas on occasion.
I never go to Starbucks...mainly because I prefer to support local businesses. I wish I had a brewer at home so I can save even more money.
