Starbucks hot apple crisp macchiato

Image
In a previous post I reviewed the iced apple crisp. Today is a strange weather day it’s sunny and raining at the same time. Cold from the wind and hot from the sun at the same time. It seemed to be a perfect day to try a fall drink released in summer.  I also had stars that were going to expire soon. I would normally order a tall since I was using the stars I got a grande. The only customization I did was request coconut milk. I know it’s not the best for this kind of drink it’s the one I like the most. Otherwise I wanted to try it the way it came.  Previously I had gone shopping with my mom and then decided to walk home. I had a heavy bag of flour to carry on the 1.5 km home. I was hoping that I could sit outside at Starbucks. All the outside tables were taken and inside was efficient with them having a person opening and closing the door and telling you to go pick up your mobile order if it’s there. I’m not comfortable sitting inside anyways but it was definitely an atmosphere of gra

Week of May 28 Veg Expo

This is the weekend I wait for all year Veg Expo in Vancouver. I am vegetarian and love food so an exhibition where I can get all the vegetarian food I want for reasonable prices is great. I bought my tickets from social shopper which was 2 for $15 and with cash back from other sites it ended up being around $10.

Tickets are well worth the price. A lot of samples in my tummy not sure if the bags that were given out earlier had more items in them. I was picking up a coupon from the table and the volunteer told me they were in the bag. I came home to discover there was no coupon in the bag but I still ended up with a pretty good free haul to bring home.

A couple of vendors had responded to my twitter or instagram inquiries and I have been to past veg expo's. I knew I would be stocking up on supplies while I was here and was prepared with cash. Although the venue was larger than past years the crowd also increased in the past it was held over two days.

this is what I bought


My companion for food events is always foodie buddy. After a few samples at vendors I headed over to vegan supply I knew I wanted the jerky. The line was really long to eat their samples and then inside their store. Fortunately they had someone who could use the portable machine to ring in my transaction so I didn't have to wait in line. I bought 3 bags of jerky, bbq jackfruit, taco crumbles and vegan marshmallows from this vendor.

Then we were ready to see someone on stage however the seats were full so we headed up another aisle for more samples. Tried a lot of Kombucha, Vegan cheese, and chocolate. I bought some chocolate. Vegan gummies are usually hard or expensive to find so bought some of those. Also bought some tea and later I bought some fresh best taco shells to have my taco crumbles in.

Yam Chops is opening in Vancouver soon and I am so excited. The plant based butcher. We tried to visit their booth when they were on stage and there was too many people. I went back later and realized it was because they were sampling taco's while they were on stage. I bought some carrot lox and some coconut bacon. I have already eaten most of the carrot lox so good. I just ate it from the package as they break a bit when I take them out. If someone made me a bagel with this I would be happy.

I didn't see many of the speakers but I did watch the muscles and learned about making kombucha. Also got to sit in a Tesla.


We had a great time left with a full tummy and a lot of food to bring home. If you are wondering what foodie buddy bought this is what I remember Zmint chocolate, more chocolate, spices, coconut bacon, tea, and after buying 2kg of frozen goji berries it was time for us to leave and commute home before everything melted.
