First bite of the Crème Brûlée Pretzel Twist

Something new from Auntie Anne's!

Twisted pretzel filled with custard, topped with burnt sugar.

Yummy! The filling is smooth and not heavy. The burnt sugar brings just the right amount of sweetness. The dough is of high quality and just delicious! 😋 

Have it with coffee! ☕

Try it and judge for yourself.

First bite of the Mango Purple Yam Bar

A new baked treat from Starbucks.

It's a butterscotch bar dappled with mango bits and ube. It doesn't taste bad, it's just a little heavy on the palate, a tad too rich. It needs to be accompanied by black coffee.

Try it and judge for yourself.

First sip of the Butterfly Pea Lemonade Cold Brew

It's a concoction made by mixing coffee with lemonade and Butterfly Pea floral tea. In short, it's beverage kaning baboy. 😝 

Before mixing, we tasted the Butterfly Pea tea bottom layer to get a sense of its flavor. Ayun, lasang gamot. 😣 Once mixed, this component gets lost in all the lemonade taste. 

What Starbucks is promoting about this drink are the swirls of colors (the butterfly pea tea may give a drink hues of blue). But as you can see, there are no swirls or blues.

Try it and judge for yourself.

First bite of the Pinoy BBQ Burger Steak

Something new from Jollibee.

Juicy burger patties, smothered with a thick, sweet barbecue sauce.

The patties are well seasoned. The flavor of the sauce is well balanced; tama yung asim at tamis. Ang SARAP sa kanin! 🍚 As for the corn toppings, hindi ko alam kung ano ang point nila. LOL!

Try it and judge for yourself.

Quick bite of the Chipotle Fire Chicken

A new chicken concoction from Kenny Rogers Roasters.

It's roasted chicken flavored with the taste of dried jalapeño (chipotle). It comes with an #EffinHotGravy, 2 side dishes, a serving of Java rice, and 1 muffin. 

It is  H O T! I needed some banana to douse the heat! I was sweating and snotting because of it! LOL! But despite the burning heat, one could still sense flavor and the juiciness of the chicken.


For those who enjoy spicy food challenges, take this one on!

An order costs Php 245.

Try it and judge for yourself.

First sip of Coconut Mocha

Something new from Costa Coffee. It's mocha made with coconut water.

The coconut water adds a layer of nutty flavor to the usual caffeine concoction. Interesting. Different.

Try it and judge for yourself.
