If you've let your eyes wander to the selection of baked goods while in line at Starbucks, you may have noticed three new additions to the pastry case: chocolate caramel muffins, salted caramel squares, and salted caramel cake pops. We tried them all.

New season, new additions to the Starbucks menu. This summer has brought back last year's Raspberry Swirl Pound Cake ($2.25), and we checked in to give it a try.
Starbucks has released a new cheesecake brownie ($2.25). The two layer treat has a fudge brownie base, topped with a thick layer of cheesecake and a swirl of chocolate ganache. We gave it a try.
Like all elite athletes and abject slobs, I understand the importance of staying well carbohydrated; fruits and vegetables are cute, but I stick mainly to the grains, and I take those mostly in the form of beer, whiskey, and pasta. But despite my gravitation toward the crummier end of the natural foods spectrum, I could still make a case for the humble (and rarely fermented) oat as king of grains.
Just in time for the holiday season, Starbucks is offering an adorable seasonal cookie, the Frosted Snowman. This fella is about the size of a large man's palm and is available wearing either a jaunty red or blue scarf.
Are coffee and a cinnamon roll the perfect partners? Perhaps. Which is why we decided to give Starbuck's new iteration a try.
Being a fan of both cake and salted caramel, I decided to give Starbucks new Salted Caramel Cake Popa try.
Over the years, Starbucks has established itself as a contender in the supermarket ice cream space, most notably with a line of Frappuccino-flavored ice creams. Their newest offering is Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino Ice Cream: a swirl of coffee and chocolate ice creams studded with chocolate cookie pieces.
This spring, Starbucks has launched a new lineup of their increasingly popular Petites. They've moved beyond cake pops, adding a miniature apple pie, cherry pie, chocolate hazelnut tart, and brown sugar walnut tart to the menu. We picked up a few and gave them a try.
