starbucks

IMG_0539 It has been awhile since I posted on Starbucks...

I thought that Starbucks used Tazo Teas...apparently they now have their own brand.

IMG_0536 I think I've also mentioned that the treats at Starbucks are hit and miss.

This apple fritter was a definite miss.

I think apple fritters should actually have apple somewhere in them, don't you??

How is your week going? The wind is really icy but at least we have sun here.

Is Starbucks expensive in Japan? It is here in Canada... well, at least relative to other coffee shops!

Japan Australia said...

I really liked Starbucks in Japan, but there doesn`t seem to be a lot in Australia and they are not as good. Australia has a great coffee culture and lots of coffee shops, so there is probably no room for a chain like Starbucks in the coffee market.

Apple fritters are one of my favorites!

K and S said...

yeah it is expensive Rissa, but one of the only places that doesn't allow smoking inside so I like them :)

I think there are many nice coffee places in Japan J-A but most times they allow smoking which I don't like, so I stick to Starbucks (which doesn't allow smoking)

I like apple fritters too Jalna, when they have apple in them :)

Take care everyone.

Apple fritters with no apples? Yuck. It's like this cream-filled donut that I had...the cream was there, but the donut was SO DRY! I think they just keep the donuts ready on the side (maybe for days) and only fill them when needed to fill the case. I was so mad. It's been averaging at 0°C lows and 4°C highs, but for the most part we have full sun every day.

Up until about 6 months ago, I worked for Starbucks corporate office in the US. Starbucks actually OWNS Tazo Tea, so it may have just been a packaging change in Japan. In the states, it's still listed under Tazo.

yeah we've been averaging low temps too Rowena, though over the weekend it went up to 9C :) They are saying that Feb 1st the temps will go two-digit...

hmm that is interesting Jessica, thanks for the info :)

Take care you two.

You're so brave to even go out in those temperatures! I'm having my Starbucks coffee at home with an espresso brownie and calling that breakfast.

had an appointment which is why I HAD to be at Starbucks, Manju, trust me, if I didn't have that appointment I would be at home drinking coffee too :)

Take care.

I was going to chime in about SBUX owning Tazo but I am slow and someone beat me to it. ;-) Maybe they are re-branding it Internationally.

K and S said...

Thanks Deb in Hawaii :) maybe they are packaging things differently overseas.

Take care.
