We were very pleased with the first batch of Starbucks Energy + Coffee drinks and now they are introducing a new flavor to the lineup!
Today we cracked open a can of Cinnamon Dulce and was greeted with coffee aroma similar to the other SBX drinks and a very slight hint of cinnamon. Once poured into a glass this drink looks THICK and RICH with a deep caramel color.
The first sip I took was rather rough…. (NOTE: EDG is a not a fan of cinnamon) I noticed a strong cinnamon taste and almost thought I was sipping out of an ashtray…. A few more sips later the ashtray/cinnamon taste was going away and it became more drinkable! I had another colleague (who enjoys cinnamon) sample this drink and he liked it start to finish.
I could drink this again BUT I would prefer one of the other Starbucks Energy drinks. I’m sure plenty of people out there will really enjoy this drink!
List of the good stuff:
– 1800mg Taurine
– 180mg Inositol
– 325mg Ginsing
– 90mg Guarana
– 450mg L-Carnitine
– 2000mg Maltodextrin
If you like cinnamon + coffee I highly recommend you try this drink once it hits the market on Jan 22, 2009.
