After seeing numerous posts on Instagram with the #maplemacchiato tag, I decided to finally try out the exclusively Canadian Starbucks concoction while taking advantage of the "Buy 1 Drink, Get a Pastry for Free" Monday Madness deal. And while unable to be seen, contained within the realms of the adjacent lovely pale pink paper bag was my Banana Loaf.
It might surprising that this was actually my first hot drink cup of the year with the La Boulange sleeve, but then again, I tend to get iced drinks despite the outside temperatures. (The cups are also the most durable plastic ones I've even come across!)
Two days later, I found myself making it a mission to drop by Starbucks to obtain an iced version of the patriotic-sounding drink. It was equally mind-bogglingly amazing, if not even more so.
