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!!
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…
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’.
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…
And that means maple everything is everywhere right now. One of which is my outmost favourite…the yummy Maple Macchiato!! Hubby and I each got one over the weekend from Starbucks…mmm. I love maple. a. lot. LOL
Hubby and I were at a Starbucks recently, and when we got our latte’s, the barista actually made some latte art for us!! Pretty little ferns…love it 🙂 Don’t see this often, when we get lattes, so always excited when we do!!
March is ALL about Maple flavoured everything, and of course, Starbucks is getting in on action too. Now, if you’re a macchiato fan already, I think you’ll like this drink. I do like macchiatos, but with this one, I didn’t really taste any maple flavour – except for a bit of the drizzle on top 😦 So for me, it was disappointing, especially since I’ve enjoyed other flavoured macchiatos from them before. Glad I had a 25% off coupon, and at least I can say, I gave it a try!!
It’s that time of year again!! 🙂 So the hubby and I got our first, tall Peppermint Mocha with light whip, of the season this past Sunday . Oh, how we’ve missed you!! We’ll also be enjoying their Gingerbread, Egg Nog and Caramel Brule lattes too, as the season goes on.
