Starbucks Tiramisu Latte review

As a dessert, it’s hard not to like tiramisu. It’s ladyfingers dipped in coffee with mascarpone cheese and cocoa. But Starbucks thinks you should be able to drink it.

Behold! The new Starbucks tiramisu latte.

starbucks-tiramisu-latteAs someone who has tried every new Starbucks drink and someone who really loves a good tiramisu, this one had my name written all over it. OK, they only wrote my name once on the back of the cup, but at least they spelled it right. Now the question is, will it whisk you away to the after dinner portion of your visit to the Olive Garden or just make you wonder why you spent $5?

Bottom line: It’s a sweet espresso drink that doesn’t taste anything like tiramisu. Maybe I imagined it because I knew what I was about to drink, but I’m pretty sure that if I didn’t know it existed and someone handed me a blank cup and said “taste this,” that I would never know it was tiramisu.

Some internet reviews mention gingerbread. I didn’t taste that. Someone said Baileys, and yes, I could sense some Irish cream. I also taste marshmallow. Ahhhh, that’s where I tasted this before! Imagine if you left your Lucky Charms marshmallows in milk for a long time and then steamed it.

That said, I don’t dislike it. I mean, who doesn’t like to drink cereal milk? Would I order it again? Probably not. There are so many other Starbucks drinks that I enjoy, so I wouldn’t add this to the list.

Personally, I think Starbucks should go a different direction in the Italian dessert department and create a cannoli latte. It could be pistachio flavored.

Those are my thoughts. I would love to hear yours. Leave me a comment. Or tweet me. Or find me on Facebook.

There are some interesting thoughts about the tiramisu latte all across social media today. Here are a few of my favorites.
