Its strange how different cafes in the same chain use entirely different ingredients for the same drink. For example, Nude at the bottom of Grafton St makes a mean chai latte (normally I'm scornful of anything that isn't a dirty great big cup of coffee but this stuff is pretty awesome) using a delicate blend of spices and magic. Nude on Baggot St on the other hand seems to make it out of hastily made mixture of sh1t and dirt.

Rice crackers with chocolate on them, whats the deal with that? Are we so far gone that the taste of something healthy on its own is anathema to us?

Hell, I don't even see people chomping on fruit, never mind celery. I've been actively searching around for places that sell healthy stuff for breakfast and so far the best I can find is cafe Sol and their selection of sad looking fruits. Even their cereals come packaged with fruit yoghurts to splat on top. Back to plan B I guess, getting up ten minutes earlier and getting breakfast at home.

I reckon this trip will be the decider on how I feel about starbucks - will I prefer irish coffee and can starbucks go to hell OR is starbucks better than cafe sol and do I welcome them with open arms?

Yeah, but frankly anything with chocolate on it is pretty tasty. It still defeats the purpose :)
