Starbucks Releasing New Holiday Drink, the Chestnut Praline Latte
For anyone who thinks pumpkin spice lattes jumped the shark this year, there's about to be a brand new novelty in town. Starbucks is releasing its first new holiday beverage in five years -- the Chestnut Praline Latte. Sounds fancy, right?
Best of all, this new drink can be made vegan! Add soy milk, skip the whipped cream, and it's a cruelty-free Christmas (or Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa, or Festivus) treat.
Starbucks confirmed to the Huffington Post that the drink would be dropping nationwide on November 12.
They circulated it in a few cities last year, and apparently it was enough of a hit to make the mainstream. It'll join its gingerbread latte and peppermint mocha brothers in a trifecta of holiday bliss.
While we haven't tasted the new addition -- yet -- here's what a few folks have said via Twitter:
The rest of us will have to wait until November 12 to see what all the fuss is about. Hopefully, the temperature will have dropped below 80 degrees by then.
