Starbucks Caramelized Honey Latte

I received an email letting me know that the Wizards in the Starbucks lab had created a new drink – caramelized honey latte – and that I should try it. In fact if I did try it, they would give me three bonus stars on my Starbucks card. Who can resist bonus stars? So I tried it  

Actually, I tried it twice. The first time I didn’t like it at all. However, when I finished the drink I realized why – all the caramelized honey goo was still on the bottom of the cup! 

Second try I made a point of thoroughly stirring the latte so the honey mixture on the bottom of the cup got mixed into the drink. 

Much better. Especially if you like incredibly sweet latte drinks. 

Something I found odd though – the foam on the top of the latte was industrial strength. Even after rigorously stirring the latte the foam didn’t break down. 

The tall size caramelized honey cost about $5. To be honest, I won’t have one again. It was nice but too sweet and rich and at $5 for a drink – I’ll save my money for when I’m at my local craft brewery.
