#48 A little Brulée?

Well I guess all the "riots" that were going to happened never came to be (I'm guessing because Obama won shhhhhhhh). But keep those useful tips on hand because as you all know, the  world will be ending anyway Dec 21st according to the reliable source of a dead society the Mayans! Waste not, want not!

Since I haven't don't a coffee review in a while, I thought I would talk about one of Starbucks' new holiday only flavors they come out with around thanksgiving through new years.

They have Peppermint Mocha, Caramel Brulée Latte, and Gingerbread Latte.

Now I am not one for really sugary drinks where I can barely tell there is coffee in it, unlike the hubs who PREFERS it that way...gross. But I went on a whim and ordered the Caramel Brulée Latte.
It's described as 

Espresso and steamed milk flavored with caramel Brulée sauce, topped with sweetened whipped cream and caramel Brulée topping.

Mmmmm sounds delish doesn't it?!?! Well it WAS! Holy crap this drink was like liquid BUTTER!!!! ( i love butter....don't judge)

I drank that baby down like it was going out of style! Sigh....mmmm...so good....but then I descided to look up the calorie content of this deliciousness...

  1. OMG I never knew the calorie count in those drinks. I prefer not to know. In October I drink the skinny pumpkin lattes, in November I drink the skinny gingerbread lattes and the rest of the year I go for skinny peppermint mochas. YUMMY!!!!!

  3. Starbucks has always known for launching great blends in coffee. I am a very big fan of Starbuck's cuppa chino coffee.
