My friend sent me a link that showed a few valentine drinks that Starbucks carry. They are strawberry or raspberry frapps. I pulled up a picture and they does look delicious. I got a hot chocolate there the other day and I didn't mind it to be honest. We usually get together a few times a year go to the movies, and then starbucks afterwards.

Is a Frappe coffee. I've never had one but if it's coffee Starbucks is way to strong for my liking.

It's an ice coffee sort of drink. i usually get a very small size because I agree it is very strong.

@ricki_911 I probably wouldn't care for that.

There are three Tim Hortons within 10 minutes of my house, about 7-10 within a twenty minute drive. The closest Starbucks is at least a 30 minute drive. I think I'll pass.

That is exactly my stereotypical picture of Ontario. Tim Horton's on every corner.

@ricki_911 I live 50 km from the closest Tim's or Starbucks. In that city there are 2 Tim's and one Starbucks plus the Safeway Starbucks. But it's not like in Ontario with so many Tim's.

They do sound good. I know Starbucks can be pricey at least here which is why I only go special occassions.

I am not sure. She sent me the article from Cosmo. So I am not even sure if Canada is doing it this year or has all of them.

@kevin1877uk I am trying to look it up but nothing really says. Just basically says depends on the store.

Maybe I'll try seasonal desserts if they have any but not a fan of coffee!

I love Starbucks and will travel to the other side of the city to get one of their coffees in preference to the Tim Hortons swill.

I do notice a different in taste, but I go to Tim Hortons for the cheaper product and convenience.

@ricki_911 When I cam to Canada I was already a Starbucks fan. The problem with Tim Hortons was that it was like stepping back 10 years, something I wasn't prepared to do.

@pgiblett That does make sense. Tim Hortons is lacking behind but the price is good which I think is why people go to them. I don't mind McDonalds coffee/ hot chocolates.

I really hate Valentines day, so now I would probably not try them.

I do not like coffe so I would not try any coffee drinks there. I do like hot chocolate.

I find the coffee strong so I would get a very small size. I don't mind their hot chocolate but can be strong.
