Starbucks- Clearwater Mall

I don't normally hit up Starbucks but lately it's all I can do. Especially since I have this Green tea latte crave. I would rather spend my time in a local coffee shop but sadly there's NONE in Clearwater and the other's aren't the best. It's hard to be able to have a good cup of whatever I want and sit in a non populated area and be able to absorb the environment but sadly I can't. All there is in Clearwater is just Starbucks so I have to deal with it. I mean there's nothing bad about Starbucks but it's just so over-rated and also I know I can get whatever I'm getting for a much cheaper price. 

Anyways... I've been going for the Green Tea a lot more since coffee hasn't been my thing. I love green tea especially matcha and any tea for a fact. Nothing to hate about the green tea latte really except the first time they thought I wanted a frap but really I wanted ice. Gabby and I tried their sweets just because I always wonder what they tasted like.

The first picture shows a Red Velvet whoopie pie and a birthday cake pop (their new addition). I'm going to be honest here they both sucked. The red velvet didn't taste anything like red velvet and it was first bitter once it hit my tongue. The red velvet wasn't moist but pretty hard and just tasted bad to me. The filling just bought this whoopie pie to it's grave. The red icing on the red velvet was really annoying because every time it got on my finger it would stain. Now to this new birthday cake pop that caught my eye. It was pink and cute so I had to try but I regret it. I should have saved my 2 bucks because this cake on a stick was more like a butter ball on a stick. The texture didn't remind me anything of a cake and it looked like lots of butter or some sort mixed with birthday cake flavoring and dipped in pink. They did sort of get the flavor down but I think this was a mere fun buying then actually to eat. 

Now not all Starbucks treats are bad because today I had the blueberry muffin and a piece of the lemon bread and it was pretty good. In the picture shows my blueberry muffin even though no blueberry was showing they were under that crispy sweet top. The muffin was pretty good I didn't have a huge complaint about it but I wished it was a lil bit more softer in texture and a little more moist. Same with the lemon bread but  my friend liked it and said it was perfect. Maybe that's just me. The lemon bread was just okay to me I wasn't in love nor hate it. Same with the blueberry muffin. It didn't make me fall in love but it's better then the rest of the desserts I had there.
