starbucks

Starbucks' short creme brulee macchiato (410 yen about US$4.10) and almond brownie (240 yen about US$2.40).

The creme brulee macchiato is similar to the caramel macchiato except they use a darker, slightly bitter caramel on top.

The brownie is moist and there are lots of almonds on top...while these two items are delicious, they are not good together (sugar rush!).

Ooh a big sugar rush I bet! Better balance the sugar rush with a caffeine high! ;-)

after a hike you will deserve a lot of almond studded brownies, Rowena :)

I've never had the macaroon, Girl Japan, but the macarons are delicious.

Definitely Debinhawaii :)

Take care everyone.
