On This Day in 2009:

Because the opportunity presented itself: side by side mochas from Starbucks and McDonalds.

Starbucks has better experience, staff, etc, offered second shot on the house. McDonalds didn't know how many shots of coffee in a mocha.

Starbucks mocha still tastes like hot cocoa to me. McDonalds mocha has a slightly plasticky taste, bitterness reminds me of coffee.

McDonalds mocha has more coffee flavor but less overall flavor.

12oz cup from McDonalds was slightly under-filled, probably for whipped cream space. Hand filled Starbucks perfectly crested cup.

I found myself drinking from the Starbucks cup more than the McDonalds cup on the way to Caribou.

Caribou has more coffee flavor and more overall flavor than the other two. Has a buttery finish not present in McD, barely in Starbucks.
