Starbucks Cinnamon Dolce Latte

Anyone tried this? Is it any good? Thanks.

  1. I really like it. It tastes like the cinnamon-sugar you sprinkle on toast with an undercurrent of brown sugar taste. It can be a little on the sweet side, so ask for fewer "pumps" of the syrup if you dislike sweeter things. I have had it both iced and hot and it is equally delicious in both.

    1. It's an alternative treat. I enjoy the cinnamony flavor throughout. It can get too sweet, I agree. I may have to try it iced. Sounds good. I'll have to wait till it stops snowing though.

      1. Too sweet for me. I just tried it yetserday.

        1. Its actually really good. I really enjoy the sugar free variety! Its like eating a cinnamon bun (with a lot less calories!!)

            Ooh, it comes in a sugar-free version? Starbucks doesn't seem to have very many sugar-free versions of their drinks. I'll have to try this sugarless liquid cinnamon bun.

            I would kill for a sugar-free Mocha Valencia but that will probably never happen.

              I got the sugar-free (that's what I was referring to above, actually) and it tasted fakey-sweet-yuck (for me, at least). But I don't have much of a sweet tooth.

                i really like the sugar free version, however I really like sugar free things! Its somewhat of an aquired taste!

              I'm usually a sugar-free vanilla latte gal, but tried the sugar-free cinnamon today. Not sure if my barista didn't make a good one, but it had NO foam (I asked for no-whip), a faint aroma of cinnamon, but I barely tasted the cinnamon flavor. I'm curious enough to give it another go, but wary...

            3. I picked one of these up on my way to wokr this morning and am sitting ehre enjoying it!

              I like it a lot. It is a bit sweet but I'd gotten through half of it by the time I got to the office so I filled it back up with some strong black coffee(advantage of an almost one person office I can drink whatever coffee I like and not Farmers Bros swill! LOL) and it's really good like this!

              Definitely a hit I'd say! The only other one of their sweet drinks I've liked has been the peppermint mocha but this is now a good other choice.
