Starbucks Midnight Mint Mocha Frappuccino

So I didn’t get the chance to try out the Unicorn Lemonade from Starbucks a couple weeks ago…boo. But when I heard about the Midnight Mint Mocha, I knew I wasn’t going to miss this one!! Mint + chocolate is a magical combination, and this frapp hit it out of the park. I will definitely get another one next week during their 1/2 price frapps happy hour. Really hope they add it to their permanent menu, since to me, this is WAY better then the Java Chip Frapp. If you love mint and chocolates, then be sure to give this one a try, before it disappears – like the elusive unicorn…

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!! 🙂

Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino

I usually get my Pumpkin Spice Latte at Starbucks hot, but the other day I felt warm so wanted a cold version, as I’d never tried it anyway. First I asked the barista what the Frapp version tasted like, and she said it tastes a lot more like pumpkin pie – SOLD!! So, gave it a shot, and it definitely didn’t disappoint!! It was like having a piece of pumpkin pie out of the fridge with whipped cream…omnomnom. I won’t lie though it WAS sweet, so if I have it again, I’ll ask for half sweet. If you like pumpkin pie or anything pumpkin, that comes with this time of season, then I think you’ll enjoy the cold version of the beloved ‘PSL’.

Cheers Everyone!! 🙂

Starbucks Sparkling Black Tea & Tangerine

I know it’s been forever since I updated, and I apologize!! Been a busy last few months filled with happiness, excitement and the feeling of being scared all at once LOL Will let you in on the reason why eventually 😉 Going to do my best to post more often though, and hope you’ll still come along for the ride 🙂

Now, on to the post at hand!! I’ve tried this once before and enjoyed it, so thought I’d talk about it today 🙂 The combo of black tea and tangerine juice is definitely yummy!! But next time I MUST remember to try peach juice instead. I’ve wanted to try mango juice, but it seems to be perpetually sold out…boo!! If you enjoy carbonated flavoured iced tea I would give this one a try…

Cheers Everyone!! 🙂
