Christmas Coffee Series – Starbucks Eggnog Latte
This review has been a long time coming (sorry for my recent blog absence!) and is probably the last of my Christmas coffee reviews because I really dislike chocolate orange so don’t really want to review the chocolate orange mocha, unless someone fancies writing a guest post for me?
Anyway, back on topic, today’s review is the Eggnog latte from Starbucks.
This coffee is absolutely gorgeous and out of all the Christmas coffees I have tried it is a very close second, only just being beaten by the Costa salted caramel latte for the top spot.
The Eggnog latte is very smooth and creamy, quite sweet too, it reminds me a bit of a white hot chocolate if you have ever tried one of those? It’s as sweet and creamy with a slight coffee taste as apposed to a chocolate taste.
The coffee flavour in this is quite weak though, not good if you like your coffee strong, but this is a nice introduction to coffee for someone who is just getting into it.
I take my coffee skimmed and still found the eggnog latte seriously creamy so I can imagine if you get the full fat version it might be a bit too creamy, and heaven forbid putting cream on top!
They use actual eggnog in the coffee (I’m assuming the alcohol free variety) which means that even if you do get this coffee skimmed its a bit heavy on the calorie side, not something I’m too bothered about but something to keep in mind if you are going to be ordering this coffee every day.
Score – 4.25/5 A lovely sweet creamy coffee, very indulgent though.
