Adventures in Coffee… Starbucks Salted Caramel Mocha

It really is the time of year when new hot drinks are being introduced. It is making me look forward to red cup season!

As well as the introduction of the Pumpkin Spice Latte this year, Starbucks has brought out a couple of other drinks including the Salted Caramel Mocha.

I treated myself to one of these yesterday and it’s okay. It is very sweet and a bit too much in grande size. I went for skimmed milk and no whipped cream, but it was extremely sweet. I also didn’t taste any salt until right at the end. I don’t know if that meant it was left at the bottom of the mug or if it sat on the top of the foam. Either way if I get it again I’ll be sure to stir it before drinking.

It has been weird being off work. I don’t feel I’ve gotten anything done, but I am definitely more relax. I enjoyed going to coffee shop and reading for a bit. I also have given myself a rest. I know exercise helps, but I also know I push myself hard and therefore giving myself a night off is a luxury and indulgence for me. I have also been doing a lot of thinking, but it’s not getting me far at the moment, so instead I’ve been watching lots of movies!

  1. I’m so glad they brought this drink here too! I have a lot of Starbucks to catch up on! I just wish it weren’t such a hassle to get to…
    Anyway! The next time you get this you should ask for half sweet – I get that with their chai lattes because I find them too sweet for me sometimes. Bente orders something ridiculous like ‘extra hot grande two pump half sweet skinny chai latte’ (I probably got that wrong, there are a lot of bits to it and I always need her to tell me about 5 times if I’m ordering something for her) but the point is – it’s really good! And you lose a lot of the sweetness without losing the flavour, which is nice.

    1. I didn’t think if that! I loved being in the coffee shops in Vancouver & Seattle as the people there knew exactly what they wanted & weren’t afraid to ask for it. Everyone here just ordered the drink. I’m going to work on my ordering skills 🙂
