Just had my first eggnog latte of the season smile apologies if this has already been done, I couldn't see it on the topic. The Christmas drinks started today.

Ooh. I was wondering when they would be starting. I like the gingerbread latte smile

Oh yay I used to work in Starbucks whilst at university and as soon as the red cups came in I knew it was officially Christmas time grin

There was a TNL as a code written on the side of a cup in my local SBs this morning, I just couldn't see round it to the explanation. Eggnog latte was coded EL. So I suspect TNL could well have been Toffee Nut Latte.

They still have the posters up though for Pumpkin Spice Lattes - PSL!!

They have anew Festive Honey and Almond Hot Chocolate too.

Not Starbucks, but Costa had an amazing black forest hot chocolate. I'm hoping that returns this year.

Oooh gingerbread latte. All that needs to happen now is for Pret's Christmas sandwich to appear on the shelves then I know it's definitely nearly Christmas....just annoying I can't have them both in the same shop!!

Boycotting Starbucks now. They're backing Monsanto in their bid to sue the American state of Vermont to get them to change their recent ruling that GM ingredients should be included on the label. Monsanto don't want this because they fear it will affect their profits, y'know, because some people might not want to eat GM ingredients.

Anybody know when Costa's are coming out (no Starbucks here)? I could kill a Gingerbread Latte right now!

Costa's christmas drinks are out the 6th of November, I believe, as I got an email about them coming out that evening.

But I will point out for those of you waiting for a gingerbread latte from Starbucks at Christmas..... Costa has gingerbread latte all year round. grin They're my favourite.

Thanks Alice Oh to live in a country that does gingerbread lattes all year around. Though maybe it's a good thing they don't!

iamdivergent Tue 04-Nov-14 15:46:24

I had the honey and almond hot chocolate today - delish!

SauvignonBlanche Tue 04-Nov-14 19:14:38

What do Cafe Nero do?

FortyFacedFuckers Tue 04-Nov-14 19:18:04

Oh I love toffee nut latte, I thought they started last week and was most disappointed to find they hadn't.

According to the email Costa are doing the Black Forest hot chocolate this year. Honey and almond hot chocolate sounds lush.

DillydollyRIP Tue 04-Nov-14 19:28:27

Costa do the gingerbread all year round? I don't know that! Really fancy one now, the Black Forest hot chocolate sounds tummy too.

enormouse Tue 04-Nov-14 19:28:42

Ooh thanks essex.

I think Cafe nero did an amaretto latte and a mint hot chocolate last year.

DillydollyRIP Tue 04-Nov-14 19:29:16

Oops. ^yummy.
Although, if I have too many of these drinks I probably will get a big tummy!

thecatfromjapan Tue 04-Nov-14 19:36:59

Thumb witch - bless you , you sound like a little oasis of right-on-ness in the midst of all the Starbucks love.grin
I suspect I should boycott them because I'll bet they're still not paying their full share of taxes; they are hideously corporate; and I think there is something else, too ....

enormouse Tue 04-Nov-14 19:37:49

From the very vague cafe Nero website I'm guessing there's going to be the amaretto latte, a roasted chestnut latte, a praline latte and white chocolate mocha.

Bit annoyed about those as being nut allergic that leaves me the mocha. And I'm not keen on white chocolate
Costa it is.

waithorse Tue 04-Nov-14 20:16:59

Costa versions are out on Friday. Can't wait. grin

AliceDoesntLiveHereAnymore Tue 04-Nov-14 20:28:46

I won't go to Starbucks anyway, as I'm not horribly impressed with their business practices. (although yes, when I lived in the states, I did go there - but admittedly didn't know much about them then)

I go to Costa or local coffee shops. Costa because I can get that lovely gingerbread latte anytime I want... and they have tasty lemon cake. grin
