Starbucks Coffee has a new gourmet coffee product to take home. I had to take the Via Latte taste Challenge. The Via Latte comes in two flavors, customers can choose between Vanilla and Mocha. I think our local Starbucks was afraid that the Via latte packet would not stand up to the classic Vanilla Latte. The challenge was more of an invite to try the new Starbucks product.
Does Starbucks coffee Via Vanilla Late hold up to the claims being written about it? Is it really a perfect way to enjoy velvet sweetness anytime? Should you stock your shelves or keep going to your local Starbucks coffee location? Are you ready for the honest truth?
There really is no comparison between the in store Vanilla Late and the Via Vanilla Latte. The espresso is barely noticeable in the Via products. In truth the milky texture overpowers any hint of coffee been in the packages latte.
While Starbucks coffee has priced their Via Vanilla and Mocha Latte well, the product is just not worth the cost. Each drink averages out to be two dollars a drink. Honestly I would not pay more for an eight oz Vanilla Latte. An in store Starbucks tall latte is $3.25.
All in all, my honest opinion is to continue to visit your local Starbucks. Even though the cost is a dollar more per serving, having the rich taste of espresso come through is worth the price. Thankfully at the moment the only two Via products that I have a distaste for. So definitely venture out and try the other coffee travel packs.
