The toffee nut latte is the one exception to my rule about not liking Starbucks. Most of their drinks are watered down tasting and overpriced. What you wind up paying for is the name and the ‘experience’ of sitting in their cafe.
The toffee nut latte is still damned expensive, with the ‘venti’ costing 7.30 SGD, but it tastes good and there’s definitely something relaxing about sitting at a Starbucks enjoying a drink. I’m not so sure my enjoyment of the drink comes from the actual taste of it. It’s not bad but it’s not anything incredible. I think it comes from the fact that it’s a holiday drink, only available at this time of year, and it’s the first sign that Christmas is fast approaching.
