Starbucks Discoveries Gingerbread Latte Ready to Drink


SBUXGingerbreadLatteRTD.jpg

Starbucks has their Gingerbread Latte version in their Discoveries ready to drink line out of the holidays. We thought we’d grab it and take it for a spin as we decorated the house this weekend.

I happen to love gingerbread, gingerbread cookies, and gingerbread flavored baked goods in just about any form or fashion. When I saw this Starbucks Discoveries Gingerbread Latte in the refrigerated section of th local store, I thought it would make a great coffee-flavored indulgence.

The Discoveries line of ready to drink coffee drinks has been out for a while, and can be found in the refrigerated section in pourable cartons. The 1.5 liter carton is easy to pack, and easy to handle, but is fairly tall so some people may need to lay it down in the refrigerator.

Tasting

Overall, the flavor is rich and indulgent, but like I pointed out last year when I reviewed the original line-up for Starbucks Discoveries, they don’t scream COFFEE! It’s more of a sweet coffee-like drink with a good gingerbread flavor.

It has a slightly scented aroma, and a distinct gingerbread flavor in the finish. It’s well balanced and not overly sweet as these ready to drink coffees go.

Others in my family have tried it and they like it too. It’s a good all around flavor, and enjoyable as the temperature dips and the holidays are in the air. Enjoy.

Review: Starbucks Discoveries - Chilled Espresso Beverage (Caffe Mocha, Caramel Macchiato, Vanilla Latte)

Starbucks Discoveries At Grocery

Starbucks has launched its Starbucks Discoveries series of products with partner Pepsi to bring three flavored coffee drinks in ready to drink form to you grocer's chilled section. We thought we'd Review them and give you a snapshot of another cool summer coffee drink.

The 1.5 liter (1.49 actually) packs look different, and come with a screw cap that unleashes the Vanilla Latte, Carmel Macchiato (you need to supply your own "Macchiato"), and Caffe Mocha. The carton is notable because it's some masterpiece of packaging shape; who knew a machine could fold something like this. It's not a regular gable top carton; it's some

My world needs more coffee, and Starbucks Discoveries are a pretty good fit. The flavors are not stand-out, but the drink is a bit indulgent, and sweet, with a hint of the signature flavor at the end. Mocha has a bit of a lingering chocolate flavor, while the caramel has a bit of a salty sweet caramel flavor. Not bad, but it doesn't scream coffee…… at all. Maybe it whispers coffee at best. It doesn't hit you over the head with sweetness either, so maybe a decent balance.
