Daily Quickie: Starbucks' PB Twirl & Peppermint Mocha

Saturday, November 12, 2011
Daily Quickie will be a short tag on the title which I'll use for blog entries about food I'm snacking at home, work or anywhere.

I finally got to visit Starbucks last night to try their Christmas offerings. Don't get me wrong. I'm not really a big Starbucks person as I prefer CBTL for their tea lattes. (I even collected 24 stickers last year just to get their CBTL Giving Planner!) However, I arrived in Tomas Morato a tad earlier than I expected. So I just hit the nearest coffee shop.


I didn't have breakfast nor lunch yesterday, so I tried their Pecan Butterscotch Twirl (P85) which was a light yet filling flaky spiral roll stuffed with aromatic cinnamon and creamy vanilla pastry cream.


On the few occasions that I've visited Starbucks, I always order either their hot Caffè Mocha or Coffee Jelly Frappuccino. But curious with their Christmas beverage selection, I ordered their Peppermint Mocha Frappuccino (Grande P160) instead.

Both the Pecan Butterscotch Twirl and Peppermint Mocha Frappuccino were good enough for my light evening snack. Although I'm not yet a full-fledged Starbucks convert, I might try collecting stickers for their 2012 planner.

How about you, have you been to Starbucks lately? What's your fave from their Christmas offerings?

  1. I'm not that particular with minty drinks. Dunno why. But looks like you had quite a small indulgence there. =)

  10. I'm a CBTL person too. I always take Starbucks as a last resort but sometimes there's just to many starbucks and not enough CBTL. My family only drinks at starbucks during christmas too because of the Peppermint Mocha Frappuccino and my sisters want their own Starbucks planner too. Every year I notice my sisters using their planners only for the first few months and they tend to forget about it once the hype is gone though.

  11. Since I started on Starbucks this year, perhaps I'll go for CBTL's planner next year just for variety.:) I'm now with 7 stickers, 10 more to go.

    Peppermint Mocha has to be my favorite among their holiday drinks. I thought minty drinks wouldn't work for me but it was surprisingly good. Hehe!
