Brazil nuts in your mocha? OH HELL YEAH!

This afternoon, a guy came in and ordered this drink: a large latte with one pump of chocolate, four pumps of sugar-free caramel syrup, nonfat milk steamed to 140 degrees, with light whipped cream and caramel drizzle. I handed him his finished drink and out of the corner of my eye watched him take the lid off. He stirred it, took a drink, and then reached into his pocket and pulled out a small bag of finely chopped pecans. He sprinkled the top liberally with the nuts, replaced the lid, took another sip and walked off.


At what point did he decide chunks of pecans would be a lovely accompaniment to a hot espresso drink? And he carries them around in his pocket? Who carries nuts in their pockets?

And how the hell do you SIP on pecans?

maybe he liked the bubblle tea experience and wants to repeat it with coffee. sip, chew, sip, chew.

but what kills me is: he orders nonfat milk but chocolate, caramel syrup, caramel drizzle? holy mother of sugar addiction. using artificial sweeteners won't make you any healthier, bub.

That bubble tea stuff made me gag. I bet you're right though...those little nut pieces probably get all soft and chewy after hanging out in the hot milk....GAG.

Luckily, the world is full of nutty individuals! They are placed there for our delight and amusement! They provide a reassurance that we ourselves are so normal!
