Morning Drink | Starbucks® Discoveries-Caramel Macchiato

One thing you should know about me is that I love my coffee super creamy and sweet.  Which basically means it ends up being half milk and sugar ha ha.  I think its because I don't really like the taste of coffee but drink it because I love the energy it provides. I know all that sugar is bad for skin but it's something that makes me happy. And I don't have a coffee everyday, just on the days I work.

So when I came across these new Starbucks Discoveries coffee cartons in the grocery store, I had to check them out. I'm always down to save $$ and time. 

What I loved:

  • saved $$ (there are about 6 glasses to the carton ($4.99 at the grocery store))
  • saved time standing in the Starbucks line
  • tasted just like a caramel macchiato - YUM!!!

Loved not so much:

  • didn't feel the caffeine like I normally do with the Starbucks lattes. This could be because the main ingredient of the discoveries carton is reduced fat milk or maybe I got a bunk carton?  Either way, I downed about 2 glasses to feel something 

Overall, I felt like this was a yummy caramel coffee flavored milk.  It was tasty going down but didn't do much for energy. I did try out the Starbucks Discoveries Vanilla Latte one and had the same verdict. Now I'm trying out another brand to see if I like the taste and energy of that one ... stay tuned for that review!
