For the first time in four years, the legendary Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks has a competitor on this first day of Autumn; the Toasted Graham Latte.
This latest Starbucks concoction, released today in the U.S. and Canada, contains espresso, steamed milk, graham cracker flavoring and sweet cream, and finally topped with graham cracker crumbles. The company explained that the new flavor is projected towards coffee-drinkers looking for a “less indulgent, more coffee-forward latte”, even though this flavor is not typically a traditional coffee flavor. The idea of this flavor came from the bottom of a cereal bowl, since the graham cracker flavoring and sweet cream resemble the taste of drinking cereal milk, which is perfect for those who drink coffee as a breakfast staple, and not for a dessert or treat.
This new flavor debuts shortly after the Starbucks iconic Pumpkin Spice Latte, now abbreviated as PSL, changed its recipe and now contains real pumpkin and no caramel coloring.
