Published February 28, 2014 by ladyemelye

i will be labeling all the “testing” of new food/drink offerings under “food test”.  so here is what i’ve had from starbucks this february:

cold pasta, chorizo cheese spread with crostini

the box includes a small portion of penne pasta with olive oil, herbs and chili flakes, container of chorizo cheese spread and a pack of crostini.

the serving was just enough for a quick snack.  the flavor of the pasta was ok.  it was the chorizo cheese spread that i really liked.  it has the right balance of the flavor of the chorizo that blended nicely with the cheese.  i even used the leftover spread with my crackers. 😉

OT.  question from the starbucks partner: “should the cold pasta be warmed”? 😀

hazelnut macchiato

starbucks is introducing their “macchiato mondays” and with this, they launched the hazelnut macchiato.  i got this by redeeming my stars (some of which were about to expire come march).

for me, the hazelnut flavor was not too pronounced in this drink.  i found myself looking for it.  i don’t know if it is because i got the iced version and the hot drink would be much better.  for me, i would still prefer the chestnut macchiato they introduced the month before.

cherry blossom tumbler

starbucks have released this year’s designs for the cherry blossom festival.  they have new tumblers and mugs.  i love the cherry blossom, and i almost impulsively buy items with this design. 😉  so today, i got a new tumbler.  it is so cute and girly.  plus, i like the new top cover of the tumbler which you slide to open and close.

wonder what is in store in the next months…
