Just when I thought I kicked the habit, Starbucks reminds me that I just can’t quit them.
The fall season is upon us and for many of us that means lining up at Starbucks to get our favorite fall-flavored, caffeine fix. Voted “most likely to be purchased” is the pumpkin spice latte. However, there is a new kid on campus and I think I’m crushing hard.
Enter, the Maple Pecan Latte.
Tall, dark and handsome. I think he may be Canadian? Or Southern… I can’t quite tell. All I know is that it’s love. PopSugar.com recently reviewed this new addition to the fall lineup and it seems to be a hit. They describe it as rich maple syrup, pecan and brown butter flavors with a similar sweetness level to that of the Cascara latte (my current fav). I think they even related the sipping experience to that of watching Hocus Pocus.
There’s just one itty-bitty, teensy-weensy problem with this Maple Pecan Latte. I have yet to try it. It’s my “white whale.” This baby has been on the dance floor for quite awhile now and I have yet to take it for a spin for a song or two… a.k.a. it’s always sold out. Hopefully with the arrival of the holiday flavors, I will be able to slip in a Grande, extra hot.
