Review: Starbucks - Gingerbread Latte

Starbucks' holiday-themed seasonal Gingerbread Latte features steamed milk and espresso mixed with a gingerbread-flavored syrup and then topped with whipped cream and nutmeg. A 12-ounce Tall costs $3.75; a 16-ounce Grande is $4.45, and a 20-ounce Venti is $4.75.

Initially, my Gingerbread Latte tasted more like spice and could have used a bit more molasses and ginger flavors. I guess I would say it's more gingerbread and less gingerbread cookie. You'll get better gingerbread flavor if you stir it up a bit as the syrup will sink to the bottom.

My complaint is that I didn't get my sprinkle of nutmeg; I guess they forgot.

Overall, the Gingerbread Latte a nice, warm holiday flavor that gets me in the holiday spirit, especially as winter chill sets in.

  1. I LOVE the gingerbread latte! I actually ordered my own syrup off of Amazon, and I purchased an espresso maker so that I can create my own lattes at home. Starbucks only offers the gingerbread latte over the Christmas season so this will allow me to have my happiness in a cup all year around. The only problem is, I've gained 11 lbs since Christmas becasue of these... ugh!

  2. Yikes! You gotta watch out for all the sugar in those syrups.
