My Comfort Drink – Starbucks Coffee Jelly (with mocha drizzle on the jelly)

You wake up late and the traffic is extra heavy making you miss your morning meeting and get yelled at by your boss. After which you find out that your credit card bill is already due but you don’t have enough in your bank account until next payday which isn’t until next month. It starts pouring as you head home, you forgot to bring an umbrella and you’re wearing your newest pair of shoes. Then you get home soaked to the bone and find a nasty little surprise from your puppy right dab smack in the middle of the living room carpet.  

Isn’t life just grand? We all get bad days like this every so often. We just trudge along as best we can after it, what other choice do we have but to cheer ourselves up and believe that tomorrow would be a better day? And for a good majority of us, the simplest way to cheer up is through good food. Comfort food, they call it.

I love Coffee Jellyย  (p155)
Mine comes in the form of a drink. In particular, my comfort drink is Starbucks’ lovely Coffee Jelly. This drink can give me the happies no matter how down I am. But the typical order of Coffee Jelly won’t lull me into a false sense of security. It has to be this specific mix that few people know of- Coffee Jelly; grande, light, no whipped cream, with mocha drizzle on the jelly. 

What makes all the difference in my drink from the regular one is the mocha drizzle on the jelly. Yes, not on the frappe, not on the whipped cream, not anywhere else, but on the jelly, and just on the jelly (I’m anal like that). My regular coffee date, Mr. Poopie (guess why that’s his new nick) looks at me like I’m batshit crazy every time I order like this. Deep inside, he adores this drink too. I love how the jelly gives texture to the drink. It’s nice to be chewing on something while mulling things over, it soothes me, comforts me.

What about you, what’s your comfort food? ^_~
