MOF’s Mocha Frappe & Hot Chocolate

MOF Japanese Sweet & Coffee recently opened its cafe in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. And it sure has a wide range of sweets and of course, coffee!

MOF’s Mocha Frappe is delicious and is rich with chocolate bits and has very strong coffee flavor. I’ll be tempted to buy MOF’s Mocha Frappe than any of the Starbucks Frappuccino drinks as it is not only taste better but it’s also cheaper, at RM 10.00 (tax-free!).

MOF’s Hot Chocolate comes with Gyuuhi, one kind of Japanese sweets, is, however less tasty. I would prefer Starbucks’ Hot Chocolate anytime over this.

Cappuccino Freddo is an icy cold glass of ice cappuccino. And it’s pretty good too.

While Caffe Freddo is made out of a glass of cold espresso coffee with whipped cream topping. Caffe Freddo is definitely for the hardcore coffee lovers as it is strong and yet irresistible.

Starbucks to Open Stores in Holland’s Train Stations

Starbucks has inked a deal with food and beverage concessionaire Servex, a subsidiary of NS, the Netherlands’ largest passenger rail transportation company. A Starbucks is slated to open next spring in Amsterdam’s Centraal Station.

Starbucks plans to open more railway station stores as part of the company’s strategy to team up with licensed partners as it expands internationally.

It is quite odd, isn’t it? Especially with the recent closure of 61 Australian stores.

We have seen the new Nescafe canned drink — Original, Black Roast and Latte. Now, we have Mocha, the repackaging is complete.

Nescafe Mocha like the other newly repackaged Nescafe canned drinks taste so much smoother and richer than its predecessor. What’s more, when I thought I just opened the drink, only to realize that I have actually finished it!

Following my last week post of the new Nescafe Original packaging, Nescafe has also repackaged their "Black Roast" or "Kopi-O" and "Latte" canned drink.

Overall, all the New Nescafe Canned Drink not only have a new look but a better taste as well. Latte is smoother despite having more milk flavor while Black Roast is simply smooth and rich.

Nescafe has recently come out with Nescafe Gold 3-in-1 to reward its customers.

Nescafe 3-in-1 claims to have a rich aroma and a more distinctive taste. However, it tastes almost similar to its Regular 3-in-1 except it has slightly better taste and nothing really distinctive.

Comes in a packet of 20 sachets, Nescafe Gold 3-in-1 retails at RM 9.90 at Jusco Supermarkets.
