  • S’mores Frappuccino fandom may rival that of – gasp! – the PSL: it’s back this year by popular demand from superfans
  • Nostalgic flavours of summers past: Remember the quintessential summer experience of roasting s’mores by a campfire?

It’s finished off with more marshmallow whipped cream and a delicious graham cracker crumble.

Top six ways to customize your favourite Starbucks drink

1. Select your milk: Customers can choose from whole, 2% milk or nonfat milk, or non-dairy alternatives such as soy, coconut and almond.

2. Ask for fewer pumps of syrup: To lessen the sweetness of your flavoured beverage, ask for fewer pumps of syrup, or select a sugar-free syrup, available in Vanilla or Cinnamon Dolce, or our Skinny Mocha Sauce.

3. Try a sweetener substitute such as Sweet’N Low®, Equal®, SPLENDA® or Stevia Blend from Whole Earth.

4. Ask for “less whip” or “no whip.”

5. Make it “Skinny”: Most handcrafted espresso and Frappuccino® blended beverages can be requested “skinny,” which means the beverage is made with nonfat milk, no whipped cream and a sugar-free syrup if available.

6. Add cold foam: this delicious and creamy treat is a perfect addition to an iced coffee or cold brew beverage.

Ronald McDonald House BC & Yukon Introduces “Home for Dinner” Community Fundraising Initiative

Ronald McDonald House BC & Yukon Introduces “Home for Dinner” Community Fundraising Initiative

Ronald McDonald House HOME FOR DINNER Nomss.come Food Blog
“HOME FOR DINNER” FUNDRAISING INITIATIVE SUPPORTS CHILDREN AND FAMILIES OF RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE BC & YUKON
Host a dinner for your loved ones and give back to families whose children require life-saving medical attention

 

 

 

Ronald McDonald House HOME FOR DINNER Nomss.come Food Blog
Nothing brings families together like a nourishing, home-cooked meal – and that’s why Ronald McDonald House BC & Yukon is launching “Home for Dinner” in support of families whose time, energy and funds are being channeled towards life-saving medical treatment for their children. Every donation supports families who must relocate to Vancouver for their child’s medical treatment, giving them a home away from home and the chance to enjoy precious everyday moments like sharing a family meal.

 

 

 

Ronald McDonald House HOME FOR DINNER Nomss.come Food Blog
Home for Dinner is a community fundraising initiative, which encourages locals to embrace the tradition of connecting with family around the dinner table by hosting a dining event in their home, or at their favourite restaurant. Hosts who cook a meal can suggest guests forego bringing wine or hostess gifts, and instead contribute a donation. Those who choose to implement “Home for Dinner” at a restaurant can treat their nearest and dearest to a decadent meal and request guests donate funds as a thank-you for their generosity. All funds raised will go towards families staying at Ronald McDonald House in Vancouver, ensuring they benefit from a supportive and healing environment while their child or children undergo life-saving medical treatments.  

 

 

 

Ronald McDonald House HOME FOR DINNER Nomss.come Food Blog
Hosting a dining event is not only an accessible way to give back to the community, but also offers the perfect opportunity for family and friends to make time for togetherness in support of a good cause. Those interested in taking part can simply sign up as hosts on the Home for Dinner website; invite their favourite people to participate as guests or co-hosts; and host the meal either at home or at a restaurant, collecting donations from their guests. 

 

 

 

“There is such comfort in sharing a meal with loved ones at the end of the day,” says Richard Pass, CEO of Ronald McDonald House BC & Yukon. “Families staying at the House are focused on ensuring their children receive crucial medical treatment, and often do not have the resources to engage in this powerful tradition. By hosting a Home for Dinner event, the community can come together to give back and make a difference in a way that is both simple and meaningful. Next time you’re planning a meal, sign up to be a Home for Dinner host – it’s an extra step that can make a world of difference in a family’s life.”

 

Ronald McDonald House HOME FOR DINNER Nomss.come Food Blog

Ronald McDonald House BC & Yukon is owned and operated by the Children’s Family House Society of BC. The organization runs a 73-bedroom property on the grounds of BC Children’s Hospital that provides accommodation, compassion and a sense of community for 2,000 families each year who must travel to Vancouver for their children’s medical treatments. The house offers spacious suites and services for kids of all ages that include a fitness area, arts and crafts studio, LEGO lounge, magic room and several indoor and outdoor gathering spaces.
