Santa and Starbucks

Every year we usually go see Santa at my work but this year Nathan was sick so I took him to the mall Santa. He did really well, in fact he was so talkative that I told Nathan he had to say good-bye to Santa and that we were leaving.

While we were at the mall I stopped at Starbucks to get a coffee. Nathan wanted something. I thought about getting him a hot chocolate because I know they have soy milk, now I just need to know what was in the chocolate.

When I ordered, I asked the lady about the milk in the chocolate she said she "didn't think so" so she asked another employee and they said they "didn't think so". I told her that Nathan was allergic and I needed to know for sure so she went and got one of the bags that the chocolate syrup came in and she read the ingredients over with me. No milk. I was so happy, Nathan could have a drink from Starbucks. He liked it and sipped it. He would say "momma this is yummy". Then after drinking it for a little bit he spilled the entire cup on the carpet of the Hallmark store. I guess I didn't need to worry about him drinking too much. No reactions either.

Thanks so much for writing about this. I had no idea that Starbucks had soy milk. That's awesome to know that my little guy can have a hot chocolate if we go there!

Yes, but every time I go I ask to see the ingredients in the chocolate sauce to make sure nothing has changed. They are so nice about it.
