Sakura Starbucks…

I was planning to write about the Starbucks sakura campaign but I’d been a bit lazy about it and now Alice over at SuperHappyAwesome has gone and beat me to it. But her piece is so lovely and the photos are so beautiful, so I don’t mind being beaten to the post (literally!). ๐Ÿ˜‰

Anyway, the sakura campaign in Starbucks is probably one of my favourite times (except Christmas) because the goods, drinks and cakes are all so pretty!

I got a new tumbler:

And of course I had to sample the Sakura Creme Frappuccino (ใ•ใใ‚‰ใ‚ฏใƒชใƒผใƒ ใƒ•ใƒฉใƒšใƒใƒผใƒŽ) and some Sakura Chiffon Cake (ใ•ใใ‚‰ใ‚ทใƒ•ใ‚ฉใƒณใ‚ฑใƒผใ‚ญ):

YUM! ๐Ÿ˜€

The Sakura Frappuccino (and Sakura Latte, which is also available) has a really unusual, sweet taste. I can only say that it tastes like… sakura! I know this is difficult to imagine if you have never been to Japan, but if you have ever tasted something with “sakura” flavour you will (hopefully) understand what I mean!

These days, when I see Starbucks (which is every day, because I work right by one!), I really feel like spring is coming. The sun is shining, my world is turning pink, and before long the cherry blossom will be in bloom…

  1. That tumbler is beautiful! I want one, but I feel like I already have so much to shop home… ๐Ÿ˜› Maybe it’s a good thing I’m so far from Starbucks here! Otherwise I’d probably go out and buy one right now.


  2. The tumbler is SO pretty, but I don’t like those kind of tops… they always spill in my bag, it’s like a law of nature or something. I REALLY want the tall water bottle with the screw top, but I hate the giant hook at the top ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    SAKURA! It’s so tasty and makes me soooo happy. I’m so sick of winter and just sitting there drinking a sakura latte the other day, sitting in the sun, I was able to mentally enjoy spring at least ๐Ÿ™‚

    I found a ใ‚‚ใ‚‚ใ•ใใ‚‰ juice drink at Family Mart the other day and it’s basically all I’ve drank this week. Check it out if you get a chance.
