First sip: Christmas Cookie Latte

It's the newest holiday drink from Starbucks.

According to the coffee chain, the drink is a "buttery creamy latte infused with shortbread cookie sauce, topped with whipped cream, shortbread cookie drizzle and butter cookie crumbles."

Is it good? Hmmm, not really. Why? It's too sweet, and the sweetness tempers the distinct butter beer and shortbread flavors. 

We tried a hot variant and a Frappuccino kind. The heat of the milk of our first drink thankfully tempered the sugary component. As for the Frap, yikes! Too saccharine.

A Tall order of the Christmas Cookie Latte Frappuccino costs Php 170.

Try it and judge for yourself.
