Tastes Like CHICKEN....

….actually no, it doesn’t taste anything like chicken. I just wanted to attract attention :-)
Anyway, my buddies at Starbucks along Market Street and Beale convinced me to try the DARK CHERRY MOCHA (my favorite drink is non-fat mocha after all) and since I am such a great sport and I like being treated like a guinea pig, I decided to give it a shot. 

The drink is actually not bad. Not my favorite but I did like the way the drink seems to have the dark chocolate taste that dominated my taste buds. The cherry taste was there and it did feel like I was slurping on a “See’s” dark chocolate candy with a cherry filling. Now this is not a negative comment, but rather more of an observation. The folks in this Starbucks store know me so I got charged $ 1.85 for a grande size drink; the regular price is $ 3.85. Hey, I may be biased on my coffee enjoyment but it helps to have connections.
I’m not exactly too big on sweet coffee drinks but sometimes, they do hit the spot on a cold, breezy day.
I like it. [3+ Stars]

Thanks for pointing out where the water fountain is. I'm just too cheap to spend that kind of money! And I'm talking about your discounted price.
March 16, 2010
LOL! If you think William's discounted price was bad, you should read my review! I bought two versions of the drink, and in the largest size!

Notice that I look for a water fountain rather than lug around a bottle of water I had to PAY for.

You've convinced me to try this tomorrow at my local Starbucks. I'll write a review of my own thoughts as well. I'm a HUGE fan of Dark chocolate but not a big fan of candied or overly sweet cherries. Should be interesting...

So, attention-seeker, the folks in that Starbucks store must be all young ladies, eh? 1/2 price?! That's just not fair!!! LOL...

I was curious about this drink when I went to Starbucks the other day, but decided to stick to my same ole regular latte.  Glad to see that you wrote a review about it and in the Gourmand community, too!  Oh, and I'm glad to hear that it doesn't taste like chicken either ;)  Thanks for sharing, Woo!  I'm going to have to try this.

I've only had Starbucks once in my life, mainly because I can't eat or drink anything that they serve, aside from soy lattes. However, your review brings to light another interesting coffee-based concoction that I can try and veganize. I loves me some caffeine. Thanks!

Yeh. Their drinks are usually sugary but thank goodness the store I go to finally got to know me, so they fix the ingredients and lower the sugar content for me. I am a caffeine fan too. LOL!

That's lucky for you. I recently got an espresso machine, so I get to control all of that stuff myself.

Indulge in a Bit of Luxury
I first heard about the Starbucks Dark Cherry Mocha from a review written by @woopak_the_thrill. Since I would be going to Target today and I knew there was a Starbucks by their food court, I decided to indulge in a bit of luxury. I was extremely lucky because I tried two versions of this mocha: one made the traditional way with espresso and the other made as a hot chocolate with added flavoring.       The two drinks were very different from each other. The espresso version …
