One of the best things about January is that the indulgence never ends at Starbucks. We went through a Starbucks drive-thru on the way to my ILs in Fairview last Friday. My mind must’ve been still asleep when we were ordering, (or I must’ve been subconciously craving) because instead of trying out one of these yummy concoctions, I ordered an Iced Mocha. It was one of the best Iced Mocha’s I’ve tried, btw. Now that I’ve come to think about it, I should’ve ordered an Iced Salted Caramel Mocha Crumble instead! It’s of the Starbucks Espresso Confections 2017 drinks…
SALTED CARAMEL MOCHA CRUMBLE – That’s mocha sauce and toffee nut syrup combined with espresso and milk, topped with whipped cream, caramel drizzle, Starbucks Sea Salt topping and chocolate brownie bits. Every moch lover’s dream, I suppose. (Also available in iced and blended formats)
ICED CHESTNUT WHITE CHOCOLATE TRUFFLE – Chestnut flavor combined with white chocolate sauce and swirled into Starbucks signature espresso. Finished with whipped cream and chestnut drizzle. (Also available in hot and blended formats)
(Short – ₱ 145| Tall – ₱ 155| Grande ₱ 170|Venti– ₱ 185)

From the new food items, I’ve tried the Mango Cake and it tastes like mango sansrival. I’m sure you’re gonna love it too. I’ll try the new Sausage Roll and the Purple Yam cookies this week.
