Starbucks Toasted Graham Latte, reviewed
If you are a fan of the Pumpkin Spice Latte at Starbucks, you may not have noticed that the coffee chain added a brand new drink to their fall lineup this year: the Toasted Graham Latte. The latte uses the same base syrup that made the S’mores Frappuccino so popular, but without any of the over-the-top marshmallow or chocolate that made the frozen drink so much fun during the summer. I’m not only a fan of s’mores, but I also happen to be a fan of graham crackers in general. They’re an easy snack to enjoy with coffee or tea and, of course, they make a great pie crust. As soon as the weather in my area cooled off enough to justify ordering a hot beverage, I ordered a Toasted Graham Latte to give it a taste.

The drink tastes of honey and toasted brown sugar, with a trace of nutty graham in the background. The flavor is complex, but subtle, and the drink is not overly sweet – much in the same way that a graham cracker isn’t overly sweet. For me, it’s a great option for a fall beverage when I want something with a little extra flavor that isn’t too overwhelming (i.e. when I’m not in the mood to go for a full-on pumpkin spice option). The syrup also combines well with vanilla and chocolate, if you want to play around with ratios to make up your own seasonal drinks.

    I definitely need to give this a try soon. The not overly sweet might be a plus for me. Thanks for the review. By the way. I follow your blog regularly and always love seeing your info and reviews.

    I love graham crackers with my froyos so I was super excited to try this. I, too, love how this drink is subtle and not too sweet.
