Okay, okay, I take that back. I really didn’t fib. I was just delayed with the truth. A busy Friday prepping for a weekend at Bellows called for a caffeine boost, and looking to the skies, I was inspired to get another Cloud Macchiato. This time iced. I must say the presentation of the iced […]

I’m sorry, but I lied. Instead of sampling Starbucks’ new iced Cloud Macchiato, I opted for a hot version instead. Seattle-esque weather just called for this changeup. The drink was okay but nothing memorable. But then again, since I was on the road, I didn’t take a sip for about 10 minutes.
With or without the partnership with singer Ariana Grande, I’m gonna try out Starbucks latest concoction, the Iced Caramel Cloud Macchiato. At the very least, the drink does look interesting with the cloud-like foam hovering over and infusing with the espresso below. Comes hot or cold and in caramel or cinnamon. Up first for me […]
Not once but twice in the same day I became an Air Jordan loser. First, I totally missed the sneaky launch of the Off-White Air Jordan 1 collaboration in the UNC colorway. I learned of the drop one hour later, so it’s no surprise I took that loss. A few hours later, I get […]
I’ve loved the speed of the free Google Starbucks Wi-Fi service available at most Starbucks locations, but this “feature” looks new. Since when did the Google Starbucks Wi-Fi service start this authentication system? I’m used to selecting the Wi-Fi network then surfing the Internet. I’m not really sure how this works as well. At a […]
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 […]
