Around Valentines' Day, Starbucks rolled out 3 new cupcakes - chocolate, vanilla, and red velvet. The idea was to inspire orders for V-Day as they were packaging and selling these little delights for your special someone. But I decided that all this really meant was that I needed to taste their cupcakes!
I didn't get to try all three - this man took 2 vanillas and there was only 1 chocolate left (long story) - but I did devour 2 of the 3. The chocolate, as extremely chocolately as it looks, tasted a little too much like a brownie. I ordered a cupcake though so I wanted a cupcake. I did not like this. But the red velvet was fantastic. The cake was spongey and moist with a nice dollop of cream cheese frosting and cake crumbs on top. I enjoyed this one and if they ever come back around for sale, I recommend it!
Hopefully they'll be back. I want to try the vanilla one!!
