I think this may be an Ate by Ate first: two posts in a day?! I know, how ambitious of me! Not really, more like excited and very eager to share 😀 I love writing, photographing, and scrapbooking about food in general, yes, but I also like to keep up with the up and coming around the city if and when I can (there’s only one of me, so I can only see and hear so much on my own) and what better way to make sure news hits the fan than to blog about it?
Hot off the press: NEW Starbucks minis!! The petite desserts, as they’re referred to, are brand spankin’ new and as luck would have it, I stumbled on them by accident today. I was out and about today, walking from St. Clair station down to Bloor, and stopped by Cumberland Terrace and Hudson’s Bay Centre with my boyfriend. The boy wanted to grab a quick Tazo tea from Starbucks so I followed him inside and gasped when I saw the display of mini goodies. Mini cupcakes! Mini lemon squares! Scrumptious-looking cake pops! And…OH MY GOD, mini red velvet whoopie pies!!! I was stunned for a good few seconds before I snapped out of it and chastised myself: “woman, what are you still doing here staring?? Hurry up and snap some pictures and get that last whoopie pie!” And so I did. Along with a mini lemon square. Because lemon and I are meant to be. As well as whoopie pie and me.
Although I love all things lemon, it’s the whoopie pie you all need to try. Ahhh, my little red velvet whoopie pie. It was scrumptious. CREAM CHEESE FROSTING FILLING, PEOPLE! I think I could eat half a dozen of these. I am crazy about whoopie pies (the name itself is adorable and deserves a fanclub) so I went nuts when I saw these. The petite desserts are available at all Starbucks locations, but the selection of desserts may vary depending on location and time of day so if you’re able, check out a few locations if you’re interested in trying a few different items. They’re $1.60 for one and 2 for $3, so I got myself a nice little discount. So to all the Starbucks and fellow sweet tooth addicts, there’s your news for the day, hot off the press! 😀
