I Love Starbucks Mocha frappuccino's, but they are kind of pricey. Do you prefer Cheaper McDonald's versions, or the real deal?

I've only had McDonald's and Biggby's.

I am not a coffee person, so I don't really notice a big difference.

Nice thing about Biggby's is that they have lots of flavours.

I don't drink coffee. If i did, it would prob be McDonalds. I hear the coffee is supposed to be pretty good for the price.

Every time I have gotten coffee from McDonald's it has been really bitter.

I used to do the McDonalds ones, and they were way cheaper, but they also are a ton more high in calories, so I switched to Starbucks.

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...

I've tried McDonald's coffee-related drinks a few times (usually on promo days when they were free), and I never like them. Dunkin Donuts is my go-to place for coffee, and Starbucks is second.

True, but I just bought some STARBUCKS K cups and brewed at home...and it was the WORST coffee ever. Going to donate the whole box to a friend..or to the dumpster.

Starbucks for sure, but I have no issue with McDonald's coffee when I'm broke. Either place though, I usually just get actual coffee. No fraps, no weird flavors, just coffee.

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.

I don't go to either - most of my caffeine comes from home, or I buy drinks at the fair trade-focused, student-run coffee shop on my campus.

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.

ArmyWife4311 ArmyWife4311
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!!

If I simply want caffeine, I'll buy coffee or something else caffeinated at the grocery store - if I'm actually ordering coffee, it's as a treat so I'd buy the nicer stuff.

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.

def needed to be an other option, I'd never buy coffee from a place that fills it up with sugar and artificial syrups.

Between Starbucks and McDonald's, I'd pick Starbucks. I'm a sucker for a salted caramel mocha. For regular coffee though, Dunkin' Donuts all the way. Light & Sweet!!
