My new love; let me introduce you!

I love you salted caramel mocha. Lets just stop playing games and get married because I literally can't go a day without you...

Espresso and steamed milk, blended with mocha sauce and toffee nut flavored syrup. Topped with sweetened whipped cream, caramel sauce and a mixture of turbinado sugar and sea salt.

Starbucks says:

Fall is full of drizzles. Drizzles of rain as the air cools, students reluctantly drizzling back to school, emails drizzling into your inbox … but not all drizzles dampen our spirits.
Take for instance the drizzle of buttery caramel layered over sweetened whipped cream on our Salted Caramel Mocha. No rainy day could dampen sitting down with a good book and one of those. So why add the salt? Well, there’s no better way to excite your taste buds than with a little sprinkle of salt just before something sweet.
A tiny bit of our premium sea salt and sugar topping deepens the rich flavors in this luxurious combination specially made to warm up the rainy days of fall.

Did you know

Salty and sweet flavors are called "appetitive" where bitter and sour flavors are called "aversive.”

Well I love the bit of sea salt because it makes the sweet even more dimensional. If you haven't had this yet, I'd highly recommend it!


  1. I don't know if you answered this question but when will you post the Continuing Story Contest winner "They Say Love is Blind".

  2. Pep
    The first time I ordered one I was skeptical, but after the first sip-it was love! It is now my favorite drink now:)


  3. Concerning They Say Love is Blind I had indicated it would be finished by the end of the year but as of yet I've been sorely slacking in the writing department. At this time I'd have to say that I really don't know when I'll write it. But I still do want to continue their story, I just can't say when.

  4. When a friend first told me that she had ordered a drink which had sea salt, I too was skeptical but it only took one taste for me to fall in love with it! It's my favorite drink, too!

  5. are you going to post any more of the untitled story

  6. Hi Anonymous, the person who will be editing Untitled and I were just in discussion about how to end it. My intent is to put the entire finished product out for everyone to read but just for a limited time. Then it gets e-published. I'll give you all plenty of notice so you'll know when it happens. I wish I could say when I'll finish it. Right now, my writing has taken a back seat due to some personal things going on in my life. Thanks for asking.

  7. there is a famous organic icream place in the Short North in Columbus that makes a salted caramel...lawd lawd is it good!

  8. Oh I love that story it is one of my favorites...although I admit that it's hard to pick just one or two of your stories Pep!

  9. Thanks ebony. I wish I could crank out a nice short one
