The Starbucks Reserve Roastery location in the Waikiki Trade Center is the only place in all of America where you can order a Haupia Nitro. Yup, that’s a nitro cold brew infused with a coconut blended mixture. The walls of the special Reserve cup are lined with condensed milk (I think), and the finished drink […]

If G.I. Joe says knowing is half the battle then Starbucks says that anticipation is half the fun. Though with the contents of the boxes known, there’s no anticipation. No anticipation means half the fun is gone, but yet knowing is half the battle. So where does that leave us?!?! Confused, I guess.
My latest Starbucks obsession is the Nitro Freddo. This drink starts with nitro cold brew on tap. Then it’s topped off with a dark caramel foam and a sprinkle of what looks like Starbucks instant VIA coffee. Alone, the Nitro Cold Brew is a potent drink – highly caffeinated and all coffee flavor. The Freddo […]
The new Starbucks location in Nuuanu (in the former Hungry Lion spot) is open for business and is the second third store on Oahu to serve Starbucks’ Nitro Cold Brew. Cold brewed for hours, infused with nitrogen, and served from a tap, this is an interesting drink. Because there’s no ice, the drink isn’t super […]
My caution to you is to stay away from Starbuck’s new Salted Caramel Mocha bottled drink. Found at grocery stores, this limited edition drink sounds wonderful but falls short on the promise. Not caramel-y enough, not mocha-y enough, and (thankfully) not salty enough, this drink isn’t worth its cost of +$3.
Looking at my pictures from Japan is making me miss the matcha-infused drinks and snacks. Of course, my surprising highlight was the Chocolate Cake Frappuccino with Matcha Shot. While I’m not a fan of the Frap, I ordered two of these while touring Japan. Other matcha items I should have tried… Ah heck, I wish […]
Today was surely a day of unicorns where not one, but two proverbial unicorns made an appearance. First off, Starbucks really did launch their magical Unicorn Frappuccino today. Yup, it’s pink, purple, and blue and looks absolutely crazy! But, the taste is anything but crazy. Heck, it’s even not as sweet as it looks. Sure, there’s […]
Apparently, yes, there will be an unicorn at Starbucks come April 19. This mythical drink is in the form of a Frappuccino and will be a crazy swirl of pink, purple, and blue… that tastes like mango… with sour raspberry. Crazy. I’m there. ?UNICORNS ARE COMING? ? @starbucks ? UNICORN FRAPPUCCINO launching April 19th. ? […]
Now this is a Starbucks Frappuccino that I actually wouldn’t mind trying. Unfortunately, the American Cherry Pie Frappuccino is available only in Japan from April 13 to May 16.
I don’t know if I just had a bad one, but I found Starbucks’s new Toasted Coconut Cold Brew to be way too bitter. My drink was nearly undrinkable without diluting it with creamer. Yes, the coconut taste is definitely detectable, but I hope that toasted aspect isn’t the cause of the overall bitterness. Granted […]
Wow, the time to redeem a Starwards Rewards for a free drink for your birthday is getting shorter and shorter. The ephemeral four days of 2016 is now just three days. Got my reminder on March 8th with an expiration of March 10th.
Heh, I didn’t realize that there’s a Starbucks on Oahu featuring its Evenings Menu. Even though the Evening program has been officially cancelled, it still lives on across from Rumours in the Ala Moana Hotel. The Evenings Program pairs alcohol offerings along with the coffee and espresso lineup with the idea of bringing in customers […]
