The Funky Fruitcake Frappuccino

Well, if a traditional fruitcake is funky then why should a Starbucks Frappuccino based on a fruitcake be any different? Yes, the Fruitcake Frappuccino is an odd drink. Not very sweet like the Pokémon Go frap, but cake-like with all the fruity chunks. Kinda tastes like vanilla cake with raisins. Normally not my kind of […]

My Preferred Starbucks at Ala Moana

Is now the newest Starbucks Reserve which is like in the old location of the former Sears. In the Mauka wing of the mall, this Starbucks has been considerably emptier than the locations in Macy’s or at Center Court. Okay, so there’s not that many stores nearby but that simply contributes to it lower volume. […]

Frappula 2016 Is Confused

Starbucks has brought back its Halloween-themed Frappula for 2016, but this year’s version is confused. The 2015 version featured a mocha base, various layers, and a “bloody” raspberry syrup. On first glance, the 2016 version has the same recipe according to the official Starbucks app. But in-store, the Frappula has strawberry instead of raspberry. While it works, […]

Because I Wanted an Itchy Butt

…I tried Starbuck’s newest addition, the Chile Mocha. Think a mocha with some heat from ancho and cayenne spices. And yes, there is some heat, even if the drink is iced. Overall, the drink is okay with nothing overly distinctive. There’s the heat, but it dissipates in an iced version as the ice melts to […]

Almost Paradise

My eyes did not deceive. That is a Foot Locker right next door to a Starbucks. Right next door! That’s almost paradise. Almost because I couldn’t go to either since we were in a hurry.

Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew: A Complete Drink

Not a perfect drink, but Starbucks’ new Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew is definitely a complete drink. You don’t have to do anything to it. The vanilla sweet cream adds the right amount of sweetness and creaminess to the basic cold brew iced coffee. Don’t expect super sweet ala Frappuccinos or something latte-like, just a cold […]

Starbucks New Cold Brews

No, I haven’t tried them yet and didn’t see any promotional materials this morning when I got my fallback Caramel Macchiato. But the Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew sounds overall awesome and the Nitro Cold Brew sounds intriguing. I think I’d try the Nitro first only because of its uniqueness, but it’s also not available […]

Starbucks Rewards Is Economical

I gotta admit that Starbucks has done a good job of finetuning its Starbucks Rewards program to its advantage. Of course, we all should have expected it over the years. As more and more of the public got caffeine-addicted, Starbucks gradually tightened their loyalty program. Now the siren has your credit card number stored (probably […]
