Coffee is for adults only!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've never been much of a fan of coffee.  It's probably because growing up, coffee was forbidden at my house unless you were an adult.  Why?  I really don't know.. my parents said it was bad for kids so I listened.  It was probably one of those myths my parents grew up with, just like 7up being a cure all. Feel sick?? Got a cold, stomach ache or pneumonia? Forget about buying medicine, just get yourself a 2 liter of 7up!  Anyway, it wasn't until I was about 20 when I had my first cup of coffee and I thought it was disgusting.  I never drank another cup until two weeks ago when my boyfriend bought me a Peppermint Mocha from Starbucks. WHOA that stuff is good! So now, anytime I'm out and about, I'm tempted to stop by Starbucks.  It doesn't help that there seems to be a Starbucks at every street corner. On my last trip I bought my mom a peppermint mocha frappuccino since she is addicted to the mocha frappuccinos.  She liked it and mentioned she had purchased some Coffee Mate Peppermint Mocha flavoring that tasted similar and said I should try it.  Today, as I was fixing myself some hot chocolate, I decided to try to add some of the Coffee Mate Peoppermint Mocha annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd it was delicious! I just wish it wasn't a seasonal flavor!
