Review: Starbucks Orange Spice Iced Coffee

Starbucks Orange Spice Iced Coffee is a new addition to their summer drink line-up and features freshly-brewed iced coffee with simple syrup, powdered cinnamon, and a couple of orange slices.

I picked up a 16-oz Grande cup for $2.75. The barista asked if I wanted it with cream so I went with that.

For the most part, the Orange Spice Iced Coffee tastes of a refreshingly-cold, smooth, and lightly sweetened iced coffee. The addition of cream and cinnamon remind me a lot of Baskin-Robbins' Cappuccino Blast, which is a good thing.

Like with Starbucks' Refreshers, the barista shakes all the ingredients together before pouring it out to serve in a cup. The cinnamon lends a little spiciness that I found enjoyable. The oranges slices are dehydrated rather than fresh and don't add much in the way of flavor except for when you get some pulp. The pulp adds a very light orangy sweetness. Both the cinnamon and the pulp tend to settle so you may wish to stir the drink ever so often.

Overall, I thought Starbucks Orange Spice Iced Coffee was pretty good and mostly interesting due to the cinnamon rather than the orange slices since I found the orange flavor very lacking.
