News: Starbucks - New Vanilla Spice Latte

Starbucks offers a twist on their Vanilla Latte with the new Vanilla Spice Latte. 

Taking a cue from chai tea (whose base note is cardamom), the new drink features a hint of cardamom and other spices. Specifically, the Vanilla Spice Latte is made with espresso combined with steamed milk, vanilla, cardamon, and spices, topped with whipped cream, crushed vanilla bean, and sugar.

It's available hot, iced, or as a Frappuccino.

Here in southern California, the weather is currently creeping into the 70s, so it looks like it'll be mostly iced or Frappuccino'd (yes, I just turned Frappuccino into a verb. I'm sorry. I won't do it again... probably) around here.
