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’ […]

Starbucks Cascara Latte Is Nuanced

A little late, but I tried the new Starbucks Cascara Latte which contains the fruit of the coffee cherry. Umm, yeah, it’s okay but only slightly, in a subtle, nuanced way. The cascara doesn’t alter the flavor profile of the espresso base, more like heightens (or deepens) the natural flavor. I’ll pass on this drink […]

The Starbucks Tuxedo Mocha Is a Delicious Hot Mess

As I thought, Starbucks’ new Tuxedo drink lineup sounds better than they appear. In promotions, these drinks look absolutely fabulous juxtaposing the two-tone white/dark chocolate combination. But in practice, when barristas are cranking out drinks, the luxurious look of the Tuxedo drinks is a nice-to-have afterthought. The drink does taste great however. The depth and […]

Tuxedos at Starbucks

Fancy, fancy Starbucks. Check out the very limited run of the Starbucks Tuxedo Collection. Available as a mocha, hot chocolate, or Frappuccino form, these dark and white chocolate drinks surely look distinguished. Really though, I doubt these drinks would look great during normal serving conditions. Guess I’ll have to find out before the end of […]
