Today was cool enough to have a hot latte, so I decided to try the Cardamom Latte from Starbucks. It tasted okay and not so sweet with only 1 shot instead of the standard 2 in a grande size. If you like chai tea, you’ll probably enjoy this latte. But if you’re into the sweeter options on the menu, this one may be too tame for you 😉
It’s still too early and hot for me to even contemplate having the warmer version of the beloved PSL. And I’ve had the frapp version, though good, the taste was too strong for me. Which is why I decided to try the iced latte version and it did. not. disappoint!! SOOO much better then the frapp to me, and I love frapps most of the time. So until the weather gets cooler, I’ll stick to the iced version.
Because why not go all the way and have everything pumpkin spice LOL I actually got the flavoured whipped cream, as it was free that day. Otherwise I could take it or leave it. But for those of you who love pumpkin spice everything, here’s another one to try!!
When the Cascara Latte first came out, I was intrigued by the description…’subtle notes of dark brown sugar and luscious maple’. So we gave it a try. It wasn’t bad and they weren’t kidding when they used the descriptor ‘subtle’. Which was fine, because I don’t like super sugary lattes more then a couple times a year. The syrup they use is made from the dried fruit of the cherry, whose seeds become the coffee beans we know and love. I may try it again sometime, but I wouldn’t say it’ll be my go-to latte. The flat white still holds that spot for now!!
Time sure flies doesn’t it? I swear my hubby and I were just at last year’s Maple Festival. Can’t wait to go again this year too 🙂 Until then though…there’s maple lattes to keep us happy. And Second Cup’s version is a very nummy one at that!! It has just the right amount of maple to espresso ratio, so if you’re a maple lover, head over to your local Second Cup. It’s only here for a limited time…
It’s that time of year again!! 🙂 So the hubby and I got our first, tall Peppermint Mocha with light whip, of the season this past Sunday . Oh, how we’ve missed you!! We’ll also be enjoying their Gingerbread, Egg Nog and Caramel Brule lattes too, as the season goes on.
