Starbucks Red Cups are Back!

The holidays are more evident in Starbucks stores. The annual red cups are back and this year you get the chance to enjoy these season’s signature favorites:
Toffee Nut
Peppermint Mocha
Dark Cherry Mocha

My personal favorite is the hot Peppermint Mocha, though I get to choose between the other two in days I want to try something different.

What’s your favorite red cup?

Starbucks Holiday Treats

There is a reason why I still don’t have the Starbucks planner. I usually have at least one by now – it’s because I am not totally digging their holiday drinks lately + their sweet treats. We usually go to Starbucks after doing some grocery, talking over anything under the sun – a titanium partnership ring we can replace our missing wedding rings, our travel plans, our sad state of saving finances – but I have felt no drive at all to even go there and finish my stickers (just when I love the planner they are offering!) because I do not like Cranberry Mocha and Toffee Nut!! Bring back White Cherry Mocha please! ~ or pattern the flavors from the US!

Starbucks Holiday Red Cups are Back!

What is the easiest sign of the holidays at Starbucks?

The return of the red cups!

I am sure that the Address Plaque of Starbucks would automatically mean Peppermint Mocha, Cranberry Mocha and Toffee Nut to some people and the mad dash to complete stickers for a Starbucks Limited Edition Annual Planner.

This year I am still nowhere half of my stickers. For some reason I am not digging the Cranberry Mocha Frappucino (have yet to try the hot version though):

I miss the white cherry mocha.

But I love their Chistmas sweet treats, that’s for sure. Molten chocolate lava cake anyone?

Mango Torte Cheesecake

I am not sure if I got the name of the cake right but it’s one of the few new things I tried out this month. I ate it while reading a brochure about celebrity cruise deals which made me want to go on a cruise someday (maybe when global warming is no longer an issue). It’s a cheesacke with a mango aftertaste – sweet with a citrus bite. I am not crazy over it, but I don’t hate it.

VIA Starbucks Coffee

Starbucks VIA is here! We only have the Colombian, Italian Roast and Decaf Italian roast but the flavored ones have come out in the US.
1. Vanilla
2. Caramel
3. Cinammon Spice
4. Mocha

I cannot wait to have the flavored ones come to local stores!

Sweet Tooth


Starbucks Venti Caramel Frapuccino + Banoffee Pie = Good Hormones


I heard that caffeine is not exactly good for the bones that is why I take calcium supplements as I really need my caffeine fix everyday. I treated myself to these after a week of hard work. I normally do not eat cake anymore much less coffee frappucinos but that day was an exception.

Starbucks VIA is out!


Finally, a great way to have Starbucks coffee everyday without having to spend so much and even go out. I work at home and try hard to maintain a work environment for myself so I can be focused. I even invested on office furniture for my workstation. Now, this coffee will fit perfectly in my Starbucks mug. I actually was able to taste the Italian decaf blend (blue colored) and it tasted good.
