At a Starbucks near you: Chestnut Praline Lattes

Just in time to satisfy your holiday sweet tooth, Starbucks announced its first new holiday beverage in five years: the Chestnut Praline Latte.

In the lineage of holiday flavor trends, Starbucks is throwing chestnut into the ring. 

The drink, according to Starbucks is, “a blend of fresh espresso and flavors of caramelized chestnuts, with freshly steamed milk, topped with whipped cream and spiced praline crumbs.”

Which ultimately just sounds like a delicious cup of caffeinated ice cream. So why not just eat ice cream?
