Today in Starbucks I was thinking about how nice the sprinkle jars look lined up like this. You can see in the picture there nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla and chocolate. Since recent times they are kept behind the counter with the sugars, and you ask for it at the point of order and the staff will add it to your drink for you. I think it’s nicer like this.
I noticed this new cute item in Starbucks this morning. It is a new snack item sold by the till called Trio of Favourites. It is part of Starbucks summer menu and is a mini pack of three favourite Starbucks bakes; the Raspberry & White Chocolate Blondie, Cookies & Cream Brownie, and Chocolate & Caramel Shortbread. My favourite is the Cookies & Cream Brownie because of that adorable mini Oreo.
Even though we’re beginning to be able to get out more now I am still really just keeping local. They have a new gingerbread cookie in Costa in the shape of a dog. There were also these wonderful little oddities in the Cancer Research charity shop.
This was my first time sitting down in a café again since the pandemic. A Skinny Cortado at Costa. It was perfect. It felt like after the war. I breathed in the air and could remember old times of freedom, though it felt fragile.
