Tastes just like "the holidays"...

...which is to say, it tastes like the corporate obliteration of something "special"? I can't tell. But I certainly felt sick, and that was after a small one.



Fortunately the British Pin Council (BPC) are on the case.

I got the Gingerbread Latte once. Once.

I think I might have actually like the Gingerbread Latte the one time I had it last year. But then, I quite liked that there were actually bits of ginger in the bottom.

Mine was just a gross concoction of syrup, milk and some coffee. Nasty stuff! I'm going onto an all-nog diet.

Hello John! I was just introduced to Scary Go Round a few weeks ago and have read through all the archives and ordered some of your books! You are my single favorite comics creator now. Your kooky fortean stories are very much their own creature and I look forward to more Bad Machinery and other future projects.

Superspecial seecrit to making starbucks flavoured lattes not taste awful: Ask for half the amount of syrup. They put in way too much of the stuff and thus sabotage their own drinks. The fools.

i have an inside source who informs me those latte's are made through a slow melting process of captive gingerbread men. what you taste is their horrified screams and agonizing tears. Also their last bowel movemeants before death.

I have been making ginger tea by simmering some ginger root in water. It's pretty spicy and gingery. I imagine if you added some milk and honey you could get a similar effect with the added benefit of it not being terrible for you. Coffee and dairy both kind of turn my tummy, so I have never had this Starbucks gingerbread latte.

Eggnog with chai! It sounds vile but it's the ONLY WAY TO GO at the Red Cup Distribution chain.

Trust me, as a former employee... I KNOW.
