As many of you may or may not know I am a Seattle native. And yes, many of the stereotypes apply. I am very used to rainy weather, so used to it in fact I just recently started using my umbrella every once in awhile, and I don't even own a pair of rain boots. I accept the rain. The same way that I love and accept grunge bands, Sir Mix a Lot, Dick's Burgers and of course, Starbucks.
I have to admit, even though I am not a huge fan of coffee, if I drink it I only get it from Starbucks. I used to get a Caramel Macchiato every once in a while when someone offered to buy me coffee. Then for awhile just recently I was really hooked on vanilla frappachino's, like getting them three times a week. Once I got on this health kick though I decided that they were way too fattening to indulge upon - especially at the rate that I was tossing them back!
So I was more than delighted to hear that Starbucks has come out with two frappachino flavors, Mocha Light and Vanilla Light. The Mocha Light Frappuccino has 40% fewer calories and 60% less sugar than regular mocha Frappuccinos, while the Vanilla Light has 50% fewer calories and 60% less sugar than their classic flavor counterparts. Each bottle is only 100 calories! This new revelation makes it easier for frappachino lovers to get their fix and not feel so guilty about all of the extra calories and sugar!
In celebration of the Mocha Light and Vanilla Light Frappachino release Starbucks set up a lounge under the tents at NYC Fashion Week. Celebrities, fashionistas, models and many other were found relaxing and hanging out in the Starbucks Lounge. Below is the highlight reel of the events that took place. It's really kind of cool getting to see behind the scenes of Fashion Week.
I personally enjoyed the Vanilla Light Frappachino the best. I was pleasantly surprised how good it tasted even though it was sweetened with Splenda. The Mocha Light was good too but because I am not a huge coffee drinker I could see myself buying the Vanilla more so than the Mocha flavor.
