A BRULEE BROUHAHA ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!


It was Hip, Hip, Brulee at 7th and Montana this morning as Starbucks unveiled its latest holiday treat, the Caramel Brulee Latte. "Yikes," I said, "Was this designed for those moments when you're not sure whether you want a Creme Brulee or an Espresso?" "What next," said Screenwriter Marc, "A Marinara Latte?" To celebrate the occasion, a Newbie Barista made the rounds offering free samples. I couldn't help noticing that she was wearing rubber gloves. No doubt she was afraid some of the calories might rub off on her. The super-sweet concoction -- a combination of espresso, steamed milk, caramel sauce, whipped cream and caramel topping -- contains as much as 580 calories.

Now is this a coffee or a freakin' dessert?

Sounds like a romance novel in a coffee. Too strong and sweet at the same time. (Hugs)Indigo

I bet if you poured that over their oatmeal you'd have a new taste treat!
