Starbucks: Mexico

The most unexpected place I found a Starbucks was in the Jardin de la Union in Guanajuato, Mexico. It feels so out of place juxtaposed against the 19th century architecture and stone roads. Apart from that one Starbucks, I saw no other foreign establishments in the whole city.


Nevertheless, I was excited to find that Starbucks Mexico had its own unique beverages.  The drink I tried was the Cajeta Frappuchino. Cajeta is like a Mexican liquid-y caramel. It is also famously produced in the state of Guanajuato, where the Cajeta Frappuchino can be found.


honestly, it tastes like a much sweeter version of the caramel frappuchino in the US.
