Caramel Macchiato Ice Cream

Starbucks Caramel Macchiato Ice Cream

There is simply nothing better on Earth. 

Oh, OK, maybe one or two things. But not much.

And this explains the insomnia :) haha. My sleep deprivation is a combination of homework and Coca-Cola.

I had to look up Macchiato, looks like a nice flavor combination. Creamy, sweet, bitter and earthy all on a spoon together.

haha! It's coffee ice cream--that might explain it all, Sushiboy. Then add an intense work schedule for the last week or so and yep, that explains it.

It's a wonderful, fabulous, fantastic favor combination. Dunkin' Donuts has the same thing for half the price. It's called Cafe Latte with Caramel. Add whipped cream on top, and yum.

Good thing I bought the Wii!

Irish coffee is the only coffee variation i like. I don't like flavored coffee. to me it's just a melted candy bar in a mug.

Sans, is haggis a cow's stomach? Yum. When I lived in France I ate cow brain without understanding what it was and turned out to be delicious. Is haggis delicious as well?

I'm sorry you cannot taste this Caramel Macchiato stuff. It's incredible. If I could send some to you I would.

Wikipedia says:

Haggis is a dish containing sheep's 'pluck' (heart, liver and lungs), minced with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt, mixed with stock, and traditionally simmered in the animal's stomach for approximately three hours. Most modern commercial haggis is prepared in a casing rather than an actual stomach.

Haggis is a kind of sausage, or savoury pudding cooked in a casing of sheep's intestine, as many sausages are. As the 2001 English edition of the Larousse Gastronomique puts it, "Although its description is not immediately appealing, haggis has an excellent nutty texture and delicious savoury flavour".[1]

The haggis is a traditional Scottish dish memorialised as the national dish of Scotland by Robert Burns' poem Address to a Haggis in 1787. Haggis is traditionally served with "neeps and tatties" (Scots: swede, yellow turnip or rutabaga and potatoes, boiled and mashed separately) and a "dram" (i.e. a glass of Scotch whisky), especially as the main course of a Burns supper. However it is also often eaten with other accompaniments.

Y ... not quite a "yum."

You tried it, Joe?

Come on. Admit it. It's wonderful. Maybe Floridian Starbucks-ians don't know how to make a good Caramel Macchiato. Ever think of that? NY-NJ-CT Starbucks-ians know what they're doin'.

Maybe you'd like the Mocha Frappuccino more ...

I do believe there is haggis flavoured ice-cream over here. I really enjoy my Haggis. It puts wool on my chest. And a fine carrot to chomp on for dessert...

Do they serve the haggis ice cream with neeps and tatties? It's the only way to go. All the cool people have their haggis ice cream that way.

I think there is a Starbucks 16 miles to the east. They better have Caramel Macchiato Ice Cream...

You can't get real haggis in the states. I think Windpipe and Lungs are against FDA regulations. (among other things?) One day I'd like to try Haggis and Scottish pies, but I doubt I'll be able to do it without visiting Scotland.

Why, 16 miles is just around the corner. Go, Sans. Or at least call first to see if they have the Caramel Macchiato ice cream. I think there's a Haggis Starbucks a few miles from me, maybe I'll go there.

Sushiboy, windpipe and lungs are indeed against FDA regulations, but they might make it through FDA inspection since God knows what makes it into our food. Don't let me go there! :) And btw, first chance you get, go visit Scotland. Wonderful place.

My Sister in Florida gets haggis & pies at her local Highland Games, so some butchers are making them stateside. Need to check if there's a nearby highland games Sushi. You can wear a kilt!
Probably held during the summer months I think.

Haggis Starbucks, baristas in kilts. It would make a fortune.

Haggis Starbucks ... you could open one in Florida, Sans, right near your sister, and you could serve haggis, tatties, neeps, and tea instead of coffee.

If you build it, and they will come.
