The packing house opened in 2014 and has quickly become a mecca for foodies and craft drink connoisseurs as well as small business supporters. This location is a renovated Sunkist packing house that was built in 1919 that has transformed into a food hall with an environment that promotes creativity and community.
The space itself is set up to accentuate its heritage and give a modern twist on the building’s Spanish Colonial Revival Style, while also aiming to make the setting feel like a South American or European public market.
It is home to a variety of Merchants that either serve food, drinks, or both which makes this a great place to come enjoy with friends and be able to have different foods to chose from so that everybody can eat what they want, while also being able to try new food.
With the Apple Watch just recently being released, and with all the craze that Apple products gets, this is a pretty interesting take on Apple’s perspective on creating new products…
Starbucks just recently revealed its new S’mores Frappuccino®. This new drink claims to include the basic elements that make up a traditional S’more: gooey milk chocolate, marshmallow, and crunchy honey-graham cracker crumbles. I for one am the biggest S’mores fan and of course had to go ahead and try this new drink, so today I went out and did just that.
The result? The actual drink itself looked nothing like it does in the picture above, so from the beginning I was a little reluctant about what it would actually taste like. Could it have been that the barista was not yet well trained to make this drink and therefore did not meet the proper appearance? Maybe; the drink did just make its appearance a few days ago across local Starbucks locations. Once I took a sip of the drink though, it was as if I took a bite out of a freshly made S’more cookie. The milk chocolate and the marshmallow at the bottom of the drink blend perfectly with the taste of mocha. I am usually not the biggest fan of whipped cream, but for this drink I was surprisingly satisfied; it consisted of a creamier texture that was like the cherry on top to this delicious drink. So for the final verdict, if you are a chocolate lover or a S’more lover, I would highly recommend it.
