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 πŸ™‚

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!! πŸ™‚

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’.

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 πŸ˜‰ Going to do my best to post more often though, and hope you’ll still come along for the ride πŸ™‚

Now, on to the post at hand!! I’ve tried this once before and enjoyed it, so thought I’d talk about it today πŸ™‚ 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!! πŸ™‚

Starbucks Maple Macchiato

March is ALL about Maple flavoured everything, and of course, Starbucks is getting in onΒ 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,Β 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!!
