Carbon’s Vanilla Strawberry Iced Latte is Pooja’s favorite drink. It is a refreshing and delightful concoction that brings together the sweetness of strawberries and the creamy allure of vanilla in a perfect harmony.
Served in a flute glass, the drink’s inviting appearance shows a beautiful pink hue, hinting at the strawberry goodness that lies within. The taste is immediately gratifying – a smooth and velvety latte base balanced with the distinct sweetness of strawberries.

As soon as I took a sip of Carbon Jaipur’s Tropical Breeze, I was transported to a tropical paradise (cheesssssy!). This mocktail is a delightful blend of sweet mango chunks, fresh orange juice, and the smoothness of fresh mango juice. The combination of flavors was simply amazing.
I loved the touch of freshness that the mint leaves and basil added to the drink. It gave it a wonderful herbal note that perfectly complemented the fruity goodness. The subtle floral undertone from the elderflower was a pleasant surprise, and it blended beautifully with the other ingredients.
The chia seeds provided a unique twist, giving the mocktail a fun and chewy texture that I really enjoyed. Also, as the made the drink thicker, which I absolutely loved! The aerated water and ice made it light and bubbly, making it the perfect refreshment for a hot day.
What impressed me the most was the naturalness of the flavors. You could tell that they used fresh fruit juices and real ingredients, which made the Tropical Breeze taste so authentic and satisfying.

1. Bagels For You!
We ordered the Bagels for You and got to create my own bagel sandwich with their selection of bread and spreads. I opted for the multigrain bagel (charcoal was not available that day ]: ) and decided to try two different spreads: the kimchi and sweet chilli spread, as well as the muhammara.
The multigrain bagel looked perfect in size and shape, and I was excited to see how it would complement the spreads. The first bite with the kimchi and sweet chilli spread was pleasant; the sweet chili flavor was prominent and added a nice touch of spiciness. However, I couldn’t quite discern the kimchi flavor, which I had hoped to experience more.
On the other hand, the muhammara spread was a delightful surprise. Its rich and nutty taste paired well with the bagel, creating a harmonious combination that I thoroughly enjoyed.
One aspect that stood out was the generous amount of cream cheese they used. While I loved the creaminess it brought to the bagels, I felt that, in some cases, it might have overshadowed the flavor of the chilli spread.
Overall, the bagel experience at Bagels for You was a mixed one. The muhammara was a standout, and I appreciated the creativity of the kimchi and sweet chilli spread, though I wished the kimchi flavor was more prominent. The abundance of cream cheese was a delight, but it might have slightly affected the overall balance of flavors. But honestly, I still loved the bagels and cream cheese and was grateful that we have access to great bagels! If you’re looking to explore unique and diverse bagel options, Carbon is worth a visit.
