It looked better in the commercial

Hi Loves,

So McDonalds has been offering new hot mochas with whipped cream and chocolate syrup drizzled on top. I've been salivating over those ads for months. Since they've been offering free sample sizes every Monday, I finally decided to give it a whirl today in effort to get off my ass and out of the house. So I drove to my neighborhood McDonalds and ordered one.

Other than the whipped cream, I did not like it. Now I know that the burgers in the McDonalds ads look glorious when in reality it looks like you're eating shit patties. But I was really holding out for the hot mochas to be really tasty.

Big let down.

I occasionally like to take a stroll over to Starbucks and fork over $4 for a hot latte with whipped cream. But in effort to spend less dough, I was thinking about downgrading to McDonalds mochas for my occasional treat.

Not gonna happen. I am such a Starbucks whore, and I think I will continue to hold the torch for them. I will gladly fork over the $4.

My favorite is the cinamon dolce latte with soy milk and whipped cream. I've been drinking the same thing for years. Once in a very blue moon I will get the caramel frappuccino.

McDonalds ads can be like internet dating sometimes, where you see this picture of a really hot dude, and you're so excited to meet. Then when you meet, you find out that there was a reason the pictures were only of his face at a certain angle with a baseball cap on.

Good comparison.
When you use low quality ingredients, you'll never get anything better than mediocrity.
No matter how it looks in an airbrushed picture :)
