    Question Can't hear a phrase(Online Gamer: Becka's Origin)

    Hey there!
    I'm having a hard time getting a couple of words from this video.



    At 2:04 Becka says:
    Can I get a triple ??? mocha with, ah, 2 scoops of vanilla? And whipped cream on top. Half, half the powder though on the... on the vanilla. And, ehm, no sugar. But two ???. Not too hot. Don't want to burn my tongue.

    Hope you can help me out. Thanks!

    The first word seems to be 'swirl'. I couldn't make out the second word.

    Splendas. Artificial sweetener. This girl is vacuous.

    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    I thought so too, but what is a triple swirl mocha? I mean I understand that it's a coffee drink, but what does this triple swirl mean?
    Splendas. Artificial sweetener.
    Seems right. Thanks!

    Apparently, this (picture 3 of 9) is a photo of a "Triple Mocha Swirl". I'm not much the wiser. I don't drink coffee which doesn't help! It doesn't seem to be a regular coffee order name or there would have been more hits on Google. Maybe it's just what she calls it, or perhaps just what that particular coffeehouse calls it.

    I found the following description on a Google hit although the link to the site didn't work:

    Triple Mocha Swirl. Take a caffe latte and add chocolate, white chocolate, and dutch cocoa and you have a triple mocha swirl.
