Review: Starbucks - Pecan Tart

Starbucks' Pecan Tart is a new seasonal menu item featuring a buttery tart crust filled with pecans, honey, and spices.

It's served warmed and costs $2.95.

The tart comes in a snack-sized portion that you can probably finish off in three or four good bites.

The crust is crumbly and super buttery (it's the second most abundant ingredient after flour...) but does leave a little bit of grease on your fingers as a result.

There's plenty of crunchy pecan pieces in every bite. Underneath the pecans, there's a sweet caramel-y layer with a gel-like consistency that also carries a bit of the nutty flavor.

Overall, Starbucks' Pecan Tart is simple and sweet and very enjoyable (if a bit pricey for the size).

  1. The Chestnut Praline Latte is my new favorite!! So delicious, it's not to sweet. If you see one available it's definitely worth a try. Enjoy!!
