Review: Vegan Starbucks Coffee Drink with Almond Milk

Man, I was excited when I saw this in a local convenience store.

There was NO WAY I could pass an Almond Milk Starbucks drink without giving it a try!

I love coffee!

& I used to love these Starbucks drinks! My sister would buy them for me and I enjoyed every drop.

As I became more health conscious, dairy milk disappeared from my diet.

And these pre-made drinks disappeared too.

Until now!

Cost: $2.99

Taste: Sweet and creamy. They taste just like the dairy ones. I wish there were more flavors to choose from.

Would I re-purchase? Hmmm let me see how much energy I gain and I’ll get back to you πŸ˜‰

*Update: Yesss, Caffeine! ⚑️

On the health side, there are weird ingredients that the cleanest eaters may be wary of… Like cellulose gel.

However for me, I don’t really mind at this time πŸ™‚

Will you try one?

Review: Pomegranate Glazed SAHALE Snacks

Shopping in the food section of CVS Pharmacy reminded me of being in a convenience store looking for snacks.

There were cookies and wine, boxed meals and stuff you can just-add-water to and microwave. Even a refrigerated section was there too.

I was looking for the healthy, low-sugar snack options, as per usual.

Luckily, I came across these glazed nuts from the Sahale Snacks brand. They are available for $1.50 a pack. Worth it!

I love these things! I was sharing with Legendary Khalifah but I ate most of them on my own!

The Red pack are full of cashews with a pomegranate vanilla glaze. They also had pieces of candied fruit in the mix. So delicious.

The glaze on them is generous and flavourful. And sweet. The vanilla scent comes through very fragrantly, like an essence almost.

They taste really classy. I enjoyed the eating experience of these.

If only there were more in the pack lol

The second flavor I had to try were also pomegranate glaze flavored, only this time with pistachios and cashews.

Again, these were super tasty but they also had a flavorful twist that surprised me!

Some bites were kind of spicy!

I looked in the ingredient list for something peppery or maybe ginger but all it said were “spices”.

No complaints, I enjoy spicy food (especially sweet and spicy!)

If I had to choose a favorite flavor, I’d go with the green pistachio ones because of the spicy element. The pistachios were also good.

Conclusion:

While I don’t normally shop in CVS for food, it now seems that I have a reason to specifically go into the store to buy more of these!

This pomegranate glaze nuts are a winner for me!
