I love McDonald's frappuccinos, and they are a price that I can stomach to pay for a cup of coffee. I'm sure Starbucks is better quality, but, its the principal of the thing...I just can't fork over that much cash for coffee that I can make better.
NO WAY I WOULD EVER PUT MY FEET INTO ANY PLACES LIKE MCDONALD'S AND ALIKE, simply because of the whole industry around it, "plastic food", animals kept in horrible ways, and it's nothing but EXTREMELY UNHEALTHY on the top of that!!!
Voted for Starbucks only because I have tasted their coffees and they are delicious...
Meh, neither for me. They're too expensive because both options add up when bought frequently. Sometimes I'll have fun making my own fancy coffee drinks at home with a blender, but for everyday I'm more of a tea person.
Mcdonalds serves the worst products on the planet. So, no on them out of principle. Starbucks always seems overpriced and not as flavorful. I like getting plain, black coffee fresh at a gourmet grocer. It's less than 2$ for a large cup of tasty goodness.
I'm not a coffee drinker I like Frappes. I've had a starbucks one and they gave me the wrong flavor so that really didn't give them a good standing with me, and then there's the fact that Starbuck's (supposedly) doesn't support the troops or the war going on so I have decided no more starbucks for me. McD's all the way!!
I like the coffee from the Tea Leaf & Coffee Bean the best. But, if I had to choose between McD's and Starbucks, I'm going Starbucks all the way! I hate everything about McDonald's including their coffee
I wouldn't much call Starbucks "the real deal"... but, I rarely ever step foot in McD's, and never order, they have the worst food and even WORST hyper-sweetened drinks. Just because there's starbucks on every corner (I live in the Northwest), it makes it easy to stop in and chill since they usually have a nice atmosphere.
If you're talking about frappuccinos, I prefer them from Starbucks, but I really only care for the strawberry flavor. If I want something cold, I'd rather have the iced cafe mocha. I tried one of the frap knockoffs from McDonald's once and the one I was served was 75% whipped cream, which I found odd, considering I ordered it without whipped cream.
McDonalds = barf. Pretty much the worst "food" possible. Their "coffee" tastes like battery acid filtered through used cat litter.
Since the only other option you gave is Starbucks, I pick that. But my french press beats either of them, and doesn't suck up all our money. I have yet to find any place in the US that makes better coffee than we make at home.
