It was only a matter of time before we whined our way to justice.  The Starbucks Dark Cherry Mocha Latte is coming to Canada and the U.S. this spring finally after being offered as a seasonal selection internationally.  And I love my Barista for letting me try it first. 

Its Espresso and Milk base is unapologetically masked by its rich and thick Mocha flavouring, accented with the syrupy sweetness of Dark Cherry essence.  Like a box of Cherry Cordials, but much higher in calories and caffeinated.  Yes, I'll have Whipped Cream and Chocolate Syrup (or Shavings) with that.  Thanks.

Also, check out the gorgeous aesthetic of these Sakura-themed Starbucks Cards which have just been released. It's as if their Product Development Team have tapped into my mind and extracted everything I liked love out of it!  These are becoming somewhat of a Collector's Item for me.


  1. I'm a somewhat recent Dark Cherry convert. I've always steered clear of the Dark Cherry yogurt...but I finally tried it the other day when there were no other options and I was in a time pinch. Not bad...I'll have to give this a whirl. Love when Starbucks offers new things. :) Thanks, Will!

  2. welcome! i'm interested in seeing the new food options too. love starbucks pastries.
