If Knowing Is Half the Battle…

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. Advertisements

Loving the Starbucks Nitro Freddo

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 […]

Buzzed by a Starbucks Nitro Cold Brew

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 […]

Stay Away

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.

Missing the Matcha

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 […]

An Unicorn Kind of Day

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 […]

Unicorn at Starbucks?

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. ? […]

Starbucks Toasted Coconut Cold Brew Is Bitter

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 […]

Starbucks Evenings on Oahu

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 […]

Torture Is…

…standing in back of a group of young teens at Starbucks. Yes, they all ordered individually but thankfully did not place orders for friends who weren’t physically there. Yes, they ordered time-consuming drinks like Frappuccinos and various pink drinks. Luckily, my iced non-fat, no whip Smoked Butterscotch Latte was prepared somewhere in between the kids’ […]
