Flavoring coffee or tea is for pussies
Then you're not drinking the right coffee or tea. I agree that using those syrups or flavored creamers is bad. And bad for you. But getting flavored coffee beans, then adding cream and sugar to your own taste is perfectly fine. I can't imagine drinking the same boring coffee or tea every day.
Heck, the only reason I started drinking coffee is because my wife kept buying amazing smelling stuff like Amaretto and Hazelnut. I grind the beans fresh every night, and the coffee tastes better for it.
My coffee connoisseur wife has tried McDonald's coffee from numerous sites, and says it has been consistently bad. Besides her, though, I have heard it is good. Never tried it myself.
Tea we buy mostly loose now. There's a greater variety of flavors, and they simply taste better. I either drink it unsweetened or with a bit of honey.
I bought a shit ton(350+ pieces) of candy because we normally get 300+ kids. Well, 6 o'clock rolls around(our hours are 3:30-6:00. No fun, I know) and we still have half a bowl left. I left to get some food for din, and came back to an empty bowl. My wife said that we had another run of kids and she gave them handfuls. Probably for the best, as it's dangerous to have that stuff around the house.
Every year I play a little "trick" on the kids by putting other things in their bags besides candy. I'll keep a small pile of pebbles, spare light bulbs, pennies, paper clips, and other junk drawer stuff by the candy, and dole it out to random kids. They open their bag, and I drop in Reese's cup with a pebble behind it. I got a rock!(The young amongst us might not get this)
I like to imagine their faces when they empty their bags and see this random junk. I believe it's harmless fun, but I'm sure somebody somewhere would disagree.
