Starbucks Covered in Sorbetto Splashes

New, 8 comments

It might be all about the Vivanno everywhere else, but we found another Starbucks Sorbetto location: The store next to Susina Bakery on Beverly Boulevard. How could we tell? In classic Starbucks branding tactics, there's Sorbetto splashes everywhere, even on the sidewalk. We've been listening to one barista explain the new drinks to each other and various customers for the last hour, and there's a lot of "it's grapfruity" and "yes it's Pinkberry" and free samples. One actually did a little "I hate Starbucks" jig as he inquired how to make one of these new fangled drinks. We can report: The berry Sorbetto is, well, a slushy mixed with fruit juice, not horrible, and gave us a brain freeze. The Pinkberry froyo flavor has that nasty Pinkberry after taste, and kind of smells like glue but, yes, it's tangy. We haven't made our way to the Vivanno yet.
