Adventures in Coffee… Starbucks Vanilla Spice Latte


I went to Starbucks the other day to use my free voucher and then realised I’d forgotten it! So annoying, but as I was there I decided to try the new drink on offer anyway – The Vanilla Spice Latte.

I’m not sure if this is new this year or if I missed it last year, but it was my first time trying it and I was pleasantly surprised. After the sweetness of the christmas drinks I was expecting another overly sweet drink, but this one is lightly sweet with the vanilla flavour being more natural than the normal syrup in my opinion.

IMG_1958I liked the finishing touch of the grated vanilla on top. I went for the skinny version, but I think the other version would have cream on top, which would make it sweeter. I liked that spice also came through in the flavour, which made it less sweet I think. I went for the tall version as well. I am trying to get out of the habit of always ordering the medium version of any drink and go based on how thirsty I am. If I want more caffeine I can always add an extra shot.

This was a nice winter warmer and I would have it again 🙂

  1. I love the Vanilla Spice Latte! I’ve never seen it before this year either, but it’s been my go-to Christmas drink this year (the skinny version, no whip). I have a feeling it’s going to be up there with the Pumpkin Spice and Toffee Nut Lattes for me, if they bring it back! And good call on getting Talls rather than Grandes…I should do the same. I always go for the Grande, but it isn’t often necessary, is it? Extra shots are more efficient 🙂
