REVIEW: Starbucks Cinnamon Caramel Cream Nitro Chilly Brew

Starbucks appears to be churning out new chilly brews sooner than Nick Cannon is having children. All jokes apart, the latest chilly brew to grace the Starbucks lineup is the Cinnamon Caramel Cream Nitro Chilly Brew. (Notice that there’s additionally a non-nitro model, as not all Starbucks places have nitro faucets. Professional tip: The Starbucks cellular app will inform you which shops do within the location information!). A refresher for these not acquainted, a chilly brew on nitro means it’s infused with nitrogen and has a easy texture.

The Cinnamon Caramel Cream Nitro Chilly Brew has a chilly brew espresso base with a brand new cinnamon caramel syrup, plus vanilla candy cream chilly foam and cinnamon dolce sprinkles (a.okay.a. simply cinnamon) on high.

Three observations proper off the bat once I obtained my drink:

  1. SO MUCH FOAM… and I’m right here for it. For those who take a look at my photograph initially, practically half of the tall dimension beverage had foam, and I cherished it. The vanilla candy cream and cinnamon have been pleasant.
  2. You too can clearly see the pool of cinnamon caramel syrup on the backside of my cup within the photograph under… extra on that later.
  3. I haven’t had a nitro drink shortly, so I forgot after which realized there isn’t a ice on this drink! No ice helps create a smoother taste. For those who don’t love watered down espresso, this one is perhaps for you!

There’s an awesome cinnamon taste proper on the first sip, which I preferred. I undoubtedly obtained some cinnamon roll taste vibes, which is ideal for the Midwest the place I dwell. It’s like a hug in a drink married to a chilly beverage, so whether or not it’s 70 levels in the future or 35 the subsequent (this actually occurred final week), this one fits the climate.

My solely knock on taste was the caramel was fairly non-existent. That is possible as a result of syrup on the backside, so I’m desperate to attempt the cinnamon caramel sauce in an iced latte to match.

On one other be aware, I would by no means return to common chilly brew as a result of the nitrogen makes it so easy. It cuts the bitterness the chilly brew can generally carry and appears like a morning indulgence. Regardless of no ice, it stayed cool as I sipped.

This chilly brew is a winner in my e book, and I’m completely happy it’s accessible year-round. After my not-so-excited evaluate of the Pistachio Cream Chilly Brew again in January, I used to be delighted with this one.
