Happy Hour at Starbucks

The 3-to-5-p.m. hours are a little tastier this week as Starbucks brought back the Frappuccino Happy Hour. Through May 15, the frozen beverages are half price during that time.

I've taken advantage of this twice so far -- and in doing so, found my new favorite drink there: Mocha Coconut Frappuccino. I apologize for the fact that that link takes you directly to the nutrition facts, and I realize it's full of sugar and calories, but it's also full of deliciousness. This might sound over the top, but the Mocha Coconut Frappuccino might be the best blended coffee beverage I've ever had.

Do you like mocha? Do you like coconut? Do you like frozen coffee drinks? Do I need to do any more convincing that you should take a late afternoon coffee break by driving to the nearest participating Starbucks to try this?
