A Caramel Frappe' from McDonald's!!
Yesterday, Carly and I stopped again at McDonald's. After we finished spending $ at the DMV on plates for our cars. It never fails, whenever we are out and about, Carly wants McDonald's. She likes the same thing each time. A cheeseburger happy meal with fries and apple juice. Plus...a 4 piece nugget with sweet and sour sauce. Now, she NEVER eats all of this food. She manages to eat every french fry she has. Plus my remaining fries. I too order a cheese burger happy meal with fries. I rarely eat all my fries and if I did, she'd have a major fit. She knows, she gets my fries too. We always take home most of the burger and at least 3 nuggets. She then will nibble on them for the rest of the day. Just her cup o'tea I guess.
On to the Caramel Frappe'. WOW are they delicious. This is from me, the one who doesn't drink coffee. I do admit, I love the smell of fresh brewed coffee, but in order for me to drink coffee, it has to be full, and I mean FULL of cream and sugar. What's the point of drinking coffee if you fill it with mostly cream and sugar?? So, I just don't drink it. These Caramel Frappe's are quite possibly my most favorite guilty pleasure to date.
As I was standing in line in McDonald's yesterday, a lady behind the counter was making a Frappe'. I asked her what in the world it was, because it looked so good. I thought it was some new milk shake with whip cream on top. The gal behind the counter told me what it was and then said, "hang on, I'll give you a sample". I told her, "oh no thanks, I don't drink coffee". Her response was, "I promise, you will love this. It's died and gone to heaven good". I stood there waiting on our food when the lady comes over and hands me much more than a sample of a Frappe'. She made me a regular size with lots of whip cream and a drizzle of caramel topping. Just like the one I saw her making for someone else. I figured she would give me a tiny bit, but not the case. I thanked her and we found our seats.
We started eating. I was just eyeballing this Caramel Frappe', not sure if I should take a swig or pass it up. I decided to go ahead and try it. Let me tell you ~ it was AWESOME! I couldn't drink it all. I had maybe less than half of it. I wanted to eat my food because I hadn't eaten all day and was starving. Boy was it hard not to drink that Frappe'.
Last night, I was telling Paul about it. He's a coffee drinker. After dinner, he said, "lets go get a Frappe'". Off we went. This time, I finished mine. Paul thought it was good, but he prefers his coffee hot. Me...well, I think I could have one, maybe two, every day of the week. It's my new guilty pleasure after all. :o)
