So, I went to one of my offices the other day (Starbucks, Midtown Plaza). I am surprised they’ve never thrown me out because I am there all. the. time. But, I find great focus there; I feel creative and energetic all while sipping my fave drinks made by some of the best barristas in Florida. I have even met a few very nice people who are happy to share a business story, a conversation or their favorite places to frequent in town.
That particular day, Starbucks was hosting a giveaway (how generous!) of the adorable, fanciful “Petites,” as they are called. They are new. And delightful to look at. And inexpensive. And, believe me when I tell you, I was more than excited to sample them.
I will let you in on a little, itty-bitty secret. They let me sample TWO! Here they are:
The Birthday Cake Pop was pink, so of course I had to try it. The outside is a chocolate dip with white sprinkles and the inside is a dense vanilla cake. I first heard about cake pops on bakerella.com (love you Bakerella!) Seeing the pictures (which are really awesome) and reading the blog (such innovative baking techniques) is not quite like tasting the actual treat. It was sinfully delicious…
It was really nice to sample two, especially since these Petites are all very cute looking and tremendously tempting. The Red Velvet Whoopie Pie, which you have witnessed went by in three mouth-watering bites, was sugary, chocolaty and creamy all at once. The small red velvet cakes sandwich a dollop of cream cheese that is smooth and satisfying. YUM!
Now I am thinking I must hit the gym…Although it was totally worth it!
Thanks Starbucks Midtown!!
