The coming of fall is a big deal for us Starbucks lovers. While the Pumpkin Spice Latte steals the spotlight among all of Starbucks' seasonal drinks, there are plenty of other delicacies that deserve a taste (or two... or three...).
Bring a little autumn joy to your office this season by surprising your coworkers with some lesser known Starbucks drinks. Scrumptious hints of cinnamon, chocolate, caramel and cream will surely bring a smile to even your grumpy office manager or perpetually unsatisfied boss.
Hey, it's not sucking up if it's Starbucks.
