While we're still recovering from the molten chocolatey overload from Starbuck's Valentine's Day menu, they've surprised us yet again with two new flavor offerings. As a huge Harry Potter fan, we're kind of excited about their Smoked Butterscotch Latte which consist of espresso, steamed milk, smoked butterscotch sauce and smoked butterscotch topping. Sounds like butterbeer right? Their other new flavor is the Citrus Green Tea Latte.
Some Harry Potter fans eagerly flocked to the closest Starbucks to tell you their experience:
Verdict is in: The Butterscotch Latte from Starbucks is not half as good as hot Butterbeer. pic.twitter.com/qsdgZ1YGR0— Mr. Brian in Orlando (@MrBrianORL) February 18, 2016
THE SMOKED BUTTERSCOTCH LATTE IS REALLY GOOD. I REPEAT, THE SMOKED BUTTERSCOTCH LATTE IS PERFECTION. @Starbucks— Christine Tran (@christinetntran) February 16, 2016
There seems to be some mixed reviews... but we're just going to have to head out and try it for ourselves. If anything, we can follow some copycat Starbucks recipe and recreate an even better version of the butterbeer inspired latte. If you're planning to make the visit, do it soon! These are only available in the U.S. and Canada for a limited time!
Also, who's excited for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them?!
