Starbucks Peppermint Brownie


I am a huge fan of anything with mint thus I always feel giddy when November comes just because Christmas is going to start over at Starbucks, hahaha. Anyway, I felt bad the very first time that Peppermint Mocha was not included on their Christmas drink. No judging, please! Those were actually  the days where I wasn't aware that I can just go and simply ask the Barista to whip it up for me since the ingredients used are in season, hahaha! I know I am such a fail. Aside from the drink, I usually go for Belgian Waffle but since there are no other food choices at that time, I just go for the Starbucks Peppermint Brownie (Php 75.00) which is by the way included on their Christmas food.

To cut the really long story short, knowing my love for mint I am pretty sure that all of you will say that I love eating the brownie. Well, I didn't actually enjoyed it that much. I know, I know but I just find the brownie too sweet and too minty for me and the fact that the brownie is chewy but not really *face palm*. Its kind of hard to really explain but all I know is that there are some parts of the brownie that are chewy but there are some which is a little burnt thus the hardness. Maybe I didn't really appreciate the goodness of Peppermint Brownie because I ate it while drinking the Butter Beer.

Overall, it wasn't that bad but as a big fan of anything minty, I am pretty much disappointed. Oh well, better luck next time or I should stick with my usual Belgian Waffle instead.

  4. Ohh i miss starbucks! I love green tea and mint :D too bad you're not really satisfied with the brownie. It's really hard to find that perfect one chewy and just right level of sweetness. I love their cinnamon rolls tho :)

  6. You're honest. You had displayed your real emotion why you're disappointed. Well, it's your decision to settle back to your fave foods, Belgian Waffle.

  9. I don't think I'm going for that peppermint brownie. As I don't like strong mint in my food. When I'm in Starbucks, I always go for blueberry muffins.

  10. I know what you mean. Sometimes mint things are just wrong and other times they are brilliant! Just depends on what you get.

    I've never really been to starbucks but once. I tried their hot chocolate and it was too rich for me. BLAH.

  19. I don't like chocolate mint that much. 75 pesos for a small brownie? If I got satisfied with its taste then I'll be okay with the price too.
