Me (NOT) So Honey!

But HONEY LATTE?  C’mon…

This is exactly what went through my head five minutes ago when someone approached my table here at Starbucks to offer me a sample of their newest drink – a honey latte.

So here I am sipping it………..

Sip #1: "Hmmm…..not very good.

Sip #2: "Still not very good.  The honey aftertaste is buggin’ me.  This just isn’t right."

Sip #3: "Ok, no more.  I’m done."

Is this why they’re getting rid of the almond syrup?

C’mon now.

What’s next?  Lemon Latte?  Taco Latte? 

Back to writing.

    I quite enjoyed it. Not so much as a “latte,” but as a sweeter drink. I don’t order that sort of stuff, but my wife would dig it.

    I feel for you. My wife and I got worried a few months ago when a local store told us they were discontinuing their toffee nut syrup. Thankfully we moved and our new local store still has it. That would be a sad day.

  3. I love One Republic! Prodical is such a great song, and Stop and Stare.
    Starbucks is good but CC’s coffee is better, serious Fair Trade company. You guys up north are not lucky enough to have CC’s coffee houses so you kinda have to love Starbucks but if you ever come th Louisiana you should try it.
    No, I don’t work for them :-)
    Nice blog!
    Blog on!

    Ok, I had already seen your post but while out at Starbucks tonight, one of the baristas guaranteed me I’d like it or he’d make me another drink. I fell for it, tried it for a few sips and… had him make me another drink. I really like honey, but not the latte.

  5. Taco Latte might not be a stretch. When in India, we prefer a Masala Chai, and it’s spiced with, cardamom, cloves, cinnamon & black pepper (whole), and tastes rather good.

  6. Hee. I rather like it, just finished one actually but it would taste much better with a shot of vanilla.
