It's back! Starbucks brought back the seasonal flavor Dark Caramel Latte which has a sweeter and deeper caramel flavor into it. Some find it too sweet but personally, I like that the caramel used in this drink is more buttery and has a deeper burnt sugar taste that I always look for in anything caramel. They also threw in a new flavor for the season - Duo Cocoa Mocha.
Hubby got the hot version and I got the iced version.
|Iced Duo Coco Mocha - Short 145Php, Tall 155Php, Grande 170Php, Venti 180Php|
Honestly, nothing special. For the iced version, still the same iced mocha. It was just topped with a chocolate whipped cream and some cocoa nibs.
|Hot Duo Coco Mocha - Short 145Php, Tall 155Php, Grande 170Php, Venti 180Php|
The hot version went the same. You only have some nibbling bonus from the cocoa nibs.
Both drinks are up the menu until November 01, 2015.
Btw, I always ask for soy when I get my Mocha here. IMO, soy enhances the flavor of chocolate. Try it next time.
|Ham and Cheese Danish for 95Php|
We also got their Ham and Cheese Danish which was good. Never forget that this is best served warm. The pastry itself was buttery, flaky and soft with a thin slice of ham and cheese on top. Good but could have been better if the ham was thicker.
|S'Mores for 70Php|
Their S'Mores though was a let down. I also asked this to be warmed. Sure it was warm on top but was cold after the mallow layer. The base was a bit though and it was overall too sweet. Not something that I would order again.
3 out of 5 Stars for Starbucks!
