Recently at Starbucks I came across their Dark Chocolate Orange Frappuccino...not sure if it is new or a seasonal and dark chocolate go so well together...enough said!

They also have a Praline Eclair...loved the oozy caramel, cream and chocolate.

Plus, it was small...perfect for a snack.

Another thing I tried was their Berry Clafoutis.

I didn't like the crust, it was too hard but I did like the filling--raspberries, blueberries and strawberries with a custard filling.

A bit different from the clafoutis I have had in the past.

We had a sunny day yesterday and are forecasted for more rain, I hope you have a great weekend.

Eclairs...haven't had those in awhile! Yuck to hear about the rain. Today looks nice but the weekend forecasts more rain! Gonna spend the whole day out in the garden while I can.

There's always something new at Japan's Starbucks. Starbucks here are boring. Zzzzz ^^

K and S said...

Yes NAYLAS, they do have many different flavors.

Stayed indoors all day today Rowena, had 2 naps :) Hope you get in some garden time!

You gotta come to Japan Mikuru :)

Take care everyone!

That looks enticing! =D

I have tried the Honey Orange & Mocha Frap this year during the Chinese New Year festive period and it taste so good i was addicted to it for the month the promotion was on!

I'm glad you liked the drink!

K and S said...

Thanks Moshi :) This frappuccino didn't have honey but I have tried their honey orange latte :)

Take care.

Ohhh that does sound yummy (orange & choco) Too bad there are no Starbucks here in Yamagata ken...well, at least in my town (Yonezawa) Sucks!!

K and S said...

Take care.

I would actually like to try that dark chocolate orange frappacino... and I'm not a frappacino fan! Looks yummy!

K and S said...

These frappuccino are blended with ice Rick, more slushy than the type in the bottles that I've seen in the States.

Take care.
