food test (july & august): starbucks, sbc, chowking

Published September 14, 2014 by ladyemelye

the past months have been quite busy, and there was not much new things that i got to try out so i am combining my food test for july and august.

starbucks: banana chocolate puff, bacon parmesan stromboli, banana raspberry frappuccino, tiramisu frappuccino

banana chocolate puff - php 75.00

banana chocolate puff – php 75.00

i do not know if because i bought this in the morning, then ate it when i got home, that it was just ok for me.  this is a flaky and buttery pastry with chocolate and bananas inside.  the pastry is actually good.  i just feel that there wasn’t enough chocolate and that the taste of the bananas were a little overwhelming.

bacon parmesan stromboli - php 120

bacon parmesan stromboli – php 120

my new favorite at starbucks. i love anything with bacon!  this is a flaky, buttery, crunchy crust filled with bacon, tomato, parmesan and mozzarella.  i could easily finish one of this in a sitting.  you could taste all of the flavors in each bite.  the perfect savory pair to your coffee. 🙂  i hope this stays in the menu.

banana raspberry frappuccino - (grande) php 170 (venti) php 180

banana raspberry frappuccino – (grande) php 170 (venti) php 180

The Banana Raspberry Frappuccino® blended beverage combines the berry goodness of our Raspberry Blackcurrant juice with milk and a peeled banana

this is my favorite among the “banana” line of frappuccino that was launched.  it has the right amount of sweetness and tart. one good option if you are looking for a non-coffee based drink.

tiramisu frappuccino - (tall) php180 (grande) php190 (venti) php200

tiramisu frappuccino – (tall) php180 (grande) php190 (venti) php200

Tiramisu Frappuccino® blended beverage features our delicious blended coffee flavored with Tiramisu sauce then topped with bits of biscuits, cheesecake- inspired whipped cream, Tiramisu sauce drizzle and a dusting of cocoa powder.

the flavors of this drink is really nice.  i like the combination of the tiramisu sauce and the cheesecake whipped cream.  the sweetness was also just right.  although this could mean a lot of calories with all that sauce, whipped cream and cocoa powder. 😉

seattle’s best coffee: strawberry fields

again, i availed of this drink using my sbc planner coupon.  this is an ice-blended drink made of strawberry puree and crushed chocolate cookies, topped with whipped cream and that cute strawberry candy.  this is like the strawberry oreo ice cream that is available locally.  a little sweet for me, but if you are a fan of strawberry or cookies or both, then this is for you.

chowking: happy pao

happy pao (panda and piggy) - php 109

happy pao (panda and piggy) – php 109

these paos are just too darn cute that i bought a box of three while buying food from chowking.  the panda has chocolate inside, while the piggy is your asado siopao in a cuter form. 🙂  the chocolate pao was actually good.  the filling was not to sweet, and they did not scrimp on the amount so that you get chocolate from every bite.

happy eating! 🙂

food test (june): sebastian’s, leona’s, starbucks

Published July 30, 2014 by ladyemelye

before this month comes to a close, let me do a quick post on what new items i tried last june. 😀

 

sebastian’s:  fudge cake and strawberry shortcake ala mode bars

additional flavors we tried from their summer line. (see previous post here)

fudge cake

fudge cake

for the chocoholic in each and everyone of us.  😉  it is composed of chocolate cake soaked in chocolate fudge, topped with dark chocolate ice cream, dipped in dark chocolate and then milk chocolate, and finished off with chocolate chips.  just the number of times i mentioned the word “chocolate” in that sentence is enough to bring anyone into a chocolate high.  it is very rich and indulgent, but not overpoweringly sweet.

strawberry shortcake

strawberry shortcake

i love strawberries that is why i did not let this pass.  the bar is made up of pound cake with strawberry sorbet, dipped in white chocolate with orange zest, and then drizzled with strawberry gelee and topped with a slice of strawberry.  it was a nice mixture of sweetness and zing.  what i like about this bar is that you taste the natural flavors, especially that of the strawberry.  i could easily eat two of this in a sitting.

 

leona’s:  strawberry sensation and banana bread

eversince i have read this post from the first wives club blog, i’ve been asking my friends who went to cebu to buy me some of the baked goodies from leona’s.  luckily, one them managed to get me two of their breads.

strawberry sensation loaf

strawberry sensation loaf

it looks and smells divine. 🙂  dense and flavorful bread with strawberries, strawberry ripple and topped with white chocolate.  again, there is a play in the sweetness and tang of flavors.  this was easily wiped off by my officemates and i.

unfortunately, i was not able to take a photo of the banana bread.  but it has the same consistency with the strawberry loaf.  it was not too sweet and it’s perfect to be paired with your cup of coffee.

 

starbucks:  strawberry cheesecake and banana chocolate

starbucks launched two new flavors and of course, we tried them. 🙂

strawberry cheesecake and banana chocolate

strawberry cheesecake and banana chocolate

the strawberry cheesecake is very similar to the strawberries and cream frappuccino that starbucks already carries.  the main difference lies with the addition of vanilla syrup, cream cheese whip, strawberry drizzle and graham crumble bits on top.  i really did not taste the difference of the cream cheese whip versus the original whipped cream.  what i liked about this drink is the additional strawberry drizzle and the crunch that is provided by the graham crumble.

the banana chocolate is also officially launched, although this can be ordered before as a variant to the banana mango.  it is a combination of banana, milk, and chocolate sauce all blended together.  it was a nice treat and my son liked this very much.  another alternative if you are looking for a non-coffee drink.

red mango frozen yogurt

Published April 11, 2010 by ladyemelye
after watching a movie at greenbelt 3, i was looking for something to satisfy my sweet tooth so i decided to buy frozen yogurt.
i went to the red mango kiosk and ordered a small green tea yogurt with strawberries and kiwis as topping.

the yogurt was good. it had a slight sweet taste with tang of sourness. the flavor of the green tea was just right and not overpowering. the fruits were a great complement to the yogurt.
if ever i am in greenbelt 3 again, i would try another topping combination.
