Starbucks Nitro Cold Brew


Tried this nitrogen infused cold brew today. We first taste tested a shot to see if we’d like it, and it’s smooth enough to drink black. We opted to try it with a splash of cream, and there’s also the option to add sweet cream to it, if you prefer. We liked the taste and will definitely have it again, but only certain locations are offering it. For us, it was the location down by the QEW and Hurontario in Mississauga. You can look up other locations in the GTA by checking out the Starbucks.ca website.

Cheers Everyone!! 🙂

Starbucks Cascara Latte

When the Cascara Latte first came out, I was intrigued by the description…’subtle notes of dark brown sugar and luscious maple’. So we gave it a try. It wasn’t bad and they weren’t kidding when they used the descriptor ‘subtle’. Which was fine, because I don’t like super sugary lattes more then a couple times a year. The syrup they use is made from the dried fruit of the cherry, whose seeds become the coffee beans we know and love. I may try it again sometime, but I wouldn’t say it’ll be my go-to latte. The flat white still holds that spot for now!!

Cheers Everyone 🙂

Starbucks Tuxedo Mocha

This past week I saw a sign at a local Starbucks, for the Tuxedo Beverage Collection. It includes a mocha, hot chocolate and Frapp. It was for a limited time too, ending January 1st 2017. We decided to try the mocha, made from a combination of regular and white chocolate mochas and espresso. Topped with steamed milk, whipped cream, chocolate drizzle and chocolate shavings. I wasn’t sure if I would like it, since I’m not a huge fan of white chocolate. But I was pleasantly surprised. Would try it again. If you’re a fan of chocolate, I think you’ll like this concoction!!

Cheers Everyone 🙂

Starbucks S’mores Frappuccino

Apparently it’s back for the summer, but I had never tried it before. So a while ago, I decided to, and it didn’t disappoint!! Tasted pretty close to a s’more, with the blend of chocolate and marshmallow. Will definitely have it again. If you’re a fan of s’mores, I think you may like this Frapp too…

Cheers Everyone!! 🙂

Tim Hortons Maple Iced Cappuccino?? Yes Please!!

When I got the email, from Timmy’s that they had come out with it, we had to give it a try. If you’ve ever had a regular Iced Capp from Timmy’s it’s nummy on it’s own. Add maple to the mix and it makes it better!! Of course I’m biased, as I love maple anything. If you have a love for maple too, then I suggest you give it a try!! Not sure how long it’ll be around for, as it’s a seasonal flavour…

Cheers Everyone!! 🙂

Aroma Espresso Bar Ice Aroma

This past week, we decided to finally try a beverage at Aroma Espresso Bar, located in our local mall. We chose to try the Ice Aroma, made with espresso, milk chocolate and milk…yum. This is the frozen version of their Aroma Coffee. We really enjoyed the creamy milk chocolate taste, and though it’s a bit pricey at over $4.50 for this regular size, we’d definitely have it again sometime. If you have an Aroma Espresso Bar in your area, I’d recommend you give it a try yourself.

Cheers Everyone!! 🙂
