Of course you do. It was a five-day sensation that swept the nation (... Give me a moment, friends, I've always wanted to say that), but just like the mythical creature it was named after, it disappeared in the blink of an eye.
Sensing our disappointment, some crafty Starbucks baristas have created a brand new mythical drink: the Dragon Frappuccino.
This one is not part of the official menu, though, so you'll have to very specifically tell your barista the recipe, or else, trust, if you just go up to them like "DRAGON FRAPP ME!" they'll be like "?????"
Starbucks will be celebrating its 50th anniversary on September 29 by giving out a free cup of Pike Place filter roast coffee at participating Starbucks stores across Canada. All you have to do is show up with a clean reusable cup (up to 591 ml).
Starbucks' Pike Place coffee is made with Latin American beans and has hints of chocolate and roasted nuts in it.
So to properly celebrate International Coffee Day on September 29 (although it can also be said to be on October 1), make sure to head to a Starbucks close to you with a reusable cup to get your hands on some free caffeine goodness.
Pretty hard to say no to coffee that doesn't cost a dime, right?

Honestly, I'm never usually a fan of Starbucks drinks because they usually taste a whole lot more like sugar than coffee. But I've got to say, the Apple Crisp Macchiato is just about the perfect mix between espresso and dessert.
In a press release, the drink is described as "generously comforting, the Apple Crisp Macchiato, available hot or iced, is inspired by the fall flavours Starbucks customers love: it combines distinct apple and brown sugar flavours, blended like a melt-in-your-mouth apple pie filling with espresso, steamed milk and a spicy caramelized apple sauce."
I got it steamed with oat milk and no sugar added and I'd easily rate it 9/10 — but I usually just prefer straight espresso with no sweetness taking away its flavour, so I'm definitely a little biased.
And in retrospect, I probably should have gotten the iced version considering we're in the midst of a heatwave in Montreal...
