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:
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”? 😀
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.
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…
