Food Spot: Gloria Jeans Coffees

I went to Robinson's Galleria last Saturday because i figured that it's the shortest way from the MRT Ortigas Station to Strata 100, that's where my Make-up Workshop was held the past 2 Saturdays. I was late on my first Saturday & i don't want to be late again so i was already in the Ortigas area an hour early. hahaha!

I took the long route before by going around St. Francis Square just to get to that building so i was 30mins late! geez!!

It's 12pm & i haven't had my lunch yet so i decided to grab a quick brunch (yes, i don't eat breakfast!). Gloria Jeans is located at the main entrance of the East Wing & since i want to make sure that i can break into a sprint if ever i am already late so i decided to hang my hat there for a while.

I don't frequent coffee shops as much as i do before & mostly i just stick with one shop so this is my first time trying out Gloria Jeans.

I ordered their Mixed Berry Smoothie & Blueberry Muffin. I love Blueberry Muffins! Just give me a whole tray of it & i'll die happily! hahaha!

I just asked them to have it on the go since i plan to really walk.

Their Mixed Berries is nice though i find it sweet. I didn't know how they made it or if they put an artificial sweetener but i find it sweet for my taste. I am used to a very mild sweet taste. that's why. I still like it though...

As for the blueberry muffin....hmmm....

I'm still undecided though....
It's very filling, of course, but as for the taste, i think the ones from French Baker is still by far my favorite!
I like the cream cheese on top, plus the fact that they reheated this but then i don't find any special taste to it to make an impact on me.

But this muffin is big!
I just ate half of it & i'm already full so i just kept the other half.
I lasted more than 6 hours on this whole piece alone!hahaha!

The center of the muffin is filled with blueberry jam so be careful when breaking this in half because the jam would ooze from it.

The smoothie & this muffin gave me the energy to survive the whole day.

I can't judge GJ on these 2 alone though so the next time i go back i'll be trying out their lattes instead.
Any recommendation?

Have a great evening,sweeties!
Jaa ne~!
