Review: The Coffee Bean - Cinnamon French Toast Ice Blended

The Coffee Bean's Cinnamon French Toast Ice Blended
The Coffee Bean's Cinnamon French Toast Ice Blended is a fall-themed limited-time drink that is sold as being "creamy and sweet with hints of maple and nut, this smooth cinnamon French toast beverage will remind you of Sunday morning breakfast as a kid." Pricing on the Ice Blended version (it's also available as a latte) is $4.30 for a 16-ounce regular and $5.20 for a 22-ounce large.

If I were to do a blind taste test of Coffee Bean's Cinnamon French Toast, I would have no idea what flavor it is. I'll give them the creamy and sweet bit, but I don't know about hints of maple and nut.

It does not remind me of cinnamon French toast, though maybe a bit like a sweet batter. I thought it was a little bit caramel-like, but without the requisite buttery-ness. It might be a little like egg nog...

Still, it's an interesting drink if difficult to pin down, but I don't mean that in a bad way. There isn't any flavor that jumps out at you but overall, it's tasty if pricey.
