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.
I 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 🙂
