First sip of the Strawberry Red Velvet Mocha and the Chestnut White Chocolate Truffle

Starbucks has two new variants for its Espresso Confections.

The Strawberry Red Velvet Mocha is espresso with red velvet mocha syrup, topped with cream cheese whipped cream and dried strawberry sprinkles. It tastes like a subdued Black Forest cake. The cream cheese topping is too subtle for the drink to be really Red Velvet. The sprinkles taste strawberry enough.

The Chestnut White Chocolate Truffle is espresso with chestnut white chocolate truffle syrup, topped with whipped cream and chestnut sauce. The chestnut sauce is good, deep and earthy with the right level of sweetness. The drink is a little too sweet. Fortunately, it has bitter undertones that tempers the sweetness.

Our tip: Order these drinks Iced and ask for half pumps.

Try them and judge for yourself.
