C = Cinnamon Roll

Starbucks circa 2007


When I had my first taste of the Starbucks frap back in 2003, I admit I became addicted to it. A sheer desire in me wanted to taste all the drinks they offer, but in 2007, I realized that I was doing myself more harm than good when I read that coffee mixes not only have lots of sugar, its dairy contents can also contribute to weight gain. So in August of 2007, I said goodbye to Starbucks. This was the last thing I ordered: a cup of mocha frapuccino and one cinnamon roll.

The cinnamon roll actually was a last decision for me, at that time I was with my sister and we planned to stay in the store, so I thought I should order something else aside for the drink. Of all the breads and cakes for sale, this seemed to be reasonable - 55 pesos (a little over 1USD) for one cinnamon roll. It was big, soft, and yes, very delicious! I loved it a lot. Sadly, I already bid goodbye to Starbucks, so even this bread, I can no longer order.

What a sacrifice, did you loose weight at least?

Looks so wonderful - but, like you, I've chosen to avoid them as well as the carb laden coffee. Darn.

I like the other cinnamon roll at Starbucks. It's reminiscent of Cinnzeo's cinnamon rolls, which I truly miss.

Why have you given up Starbucks?

Jenn, the Foodie


I come from a family who loves cooking and eating. I never had any formal training in cooking and that I taught myself how to cook based on the handed down recipes, but I could say that I can cook good food. In 2008, I started documenting my food trips for my travel blog, and since I have quite enough to start a food blog, might as well put all those food trips in one location. Thus, a food blog is born - thanks to the new Friendster Blogs. However, due to several problems, I was left with no choice but to pack bags again and move here instead. Here's the permanent address, promise! Enough talk, let the food trippin' begin! {Know More About Me}
