I tried the new Starbucks Pineapple Refresher

  I had stars that were going to expire so I decided to try the new refresher. I have seen some reviews of people that love it and others of people that hate it. It’s often sold out but I was in a location where they had it.  I am not really a fan of pineapple flavours. I like other refreshers from Starbucks and I love passion fruit so thought it might be good. There are options to add coconut milk or lemonade. I always get coconut milk in my coffee but I don’t like it in refreshers and I always like lemonade. The drink at first seemed okay but it had a strange bitter aftertaste after each sip. I am not sure the addition of the lemonade made it like that but my mom and I both didn’t like it. It was drinkable but not something I would order again. I will stick to the the Mango Dragon Fruit refresher as my go to refresher from Starbucks.  Let me know if you have tried it in the comments or on Instagram @livingottawalocal.

PC Brand Ravioli Grandi - Heirloom Tomato and Burrata Cheese

I bought this ravioli at superstore for $4.99. The description on the box in summary said Tender oversized Ravioli with a filling made from heirloom tomatoes and burrata cheese. The pasta is made in Italy and it was a very light pasta with a good amount of filling.  I liked that I could hold the ravioli without it falling apart in my hands yet the pasta was really thin. The filling inside was a good amount with the cheese separated from the tomato. I really liked the flavour in the filling as it was well seasoned. The box said it would be good drizzled with olive oil I tried that on one piece after I had eaten a few plain from the pot. I liked it plain better there was already good flavour in it so I found the olive oil overpowered the flavour.  I really liked this pasta it is so light that I had to stop myself from eating the whole package in one meal. To get any pasta similar to this I would have to go to an authentic Italian restaurant where I am sure it would cost me upwards of $15 for half the portion so $4.99 for this pasta is a great deal.
