After introducing the sinful Whoopie Pie which AJ and I love to bits, Starbucks has introduced a new dessert that is just as sinful as the Whoopie Pie, only this one is an instant favorite: the Mocha Silvana. What’s not to love about this one? Unlike your typical silvana which is made of very rich buttercream sandwiched between two cashew meringue wafers, this one has a layer of mocha buttercream sandwiched by thick and chewy meringue wafers. The best part about this one is that it’s covered by lots and lots of crushed almonds!
Starbucks’ Mocha Silvana is surprisingly not too sweet, and the mocha buttercream is really good; I didn’t feel like I’m eating raw butter. I also like the thicker and chewy meringue wafers which I savor in each bite.
Priced at only P95.00 per piece (and it’s good for sharing too), this dessert is a runaway winner.
Very recently too, Starbucks introduced the Starbucks Refreshers which comes in 2 flavors: Cool Lime and Very Berry Hibiscus. The Refreshers are made with green coffee extract, which is said to boost natural energy. Perfect for those who love cold drinks but are conscious about its calories.
AJ and I sampled the 2 flavors earlier after doing our weekly grocery. AJ had the Cool Lime while I went for the Very Berry Hibiscus. We both found them to be okey, but are not exactly the drinks we would order again. I guess we’re really coffee persons, and are better off sticking with hot caffeine drinks hehe.
One thing I loved about these drinks though is that they’re really refreshing. They have this cooling effect that relaxed me. I guess if I’m a gym person I will choose to recharge with this after every work out =)
Starbucks Refreshers are available in these sizes: Tall (P115.00), Grande (P125.00) and Venti (P135.00).
