Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Starbucks Discoveries Cold Milk Drinks Confirmed sighting: Starbucks Discoveries Cold Milk Drinks
Posted: 10:33 Sun 25-Apr-2010. Price: Currently 1/220ml introductory offer. Location: Sainsbury's, Finchley Road. Sub-flavours: Seattle Latte; Aztlan Mocha Latte Chocolate Flavour; Qandi Latte Caramel Flavour; Doubleshot Espresso and Milk. Nutritional unusualness: High caffeine content (47mg/100ml).
Snackspot reports: It's only taken Starbucks 5 years or so to respond to Emmi's Caffe Latte with these "Short" servings of assorted flavours, now available in supermarket chiller cabinets for about a quid. All the three Latte flavours I've tried so far are a bit more convincing than the Emmi ones - the Mocha one is probably the most bitter, but the Caramel variety also does a good job of covering up the taste of the UHT milk. Obviously they're not huge portions, but even at full price (around 1.50?), they'll still be a bargain compared with anything from an actual Starbucks - and, along with their recent bid to revolutionise the way we drink instant coffee, suggests the company may soon be moving into the long-anticipated 'Phase Two' of their operation.

...Obviously real energy drink fans are just counting the seconds before the official UK return of New Mountain Dew in May, but until then you can keep your spirits up with Lucozade Sport Lite, Reverend Berriman's Cola with a hint of chilli, or the seven-strong Neuro range of vitamin and mineral-based drinks (in NeuroAqua, NeuroGasm, NeuroTrim, NeuroSonic, NeuroSleep, NeuroSport or NeuroBliss). Alternatively, those above legal drinking age can welcome the warmer weather with Bulmers Apple and Pear Summer Blend, (recently 1.69/568ml, or "3 for 5" - thanks, Sainsbury's), the alarmingly blackcurrant-bouqueted Gaymers Pear Cider with Berry Fruits (3/4 x 330ml, Morrissons), St Helier's Real Shandy, or Brothers Tutti Frutti Cider, allegedly inspired by "revellers who mixed the company's strawberry, lemon and toffee apple ciders into its regular pear cider" at Glastonbury last year.

Comment: I have just had a Lucozade Sport Lite (lemon and Lime). 50 kcal per bottle and everyone of them a prisoner. Jeez but it was nasty.

Comment: Who the hell thought of ruining the Mountain Dew drink/brand with another 'energy' drink. At the very least If they have to change It then do the water & cheap concentrated juice and market it as a premium product with a very high profit margin e.g. Drench.

Comment: Qandi Latte Caramel is highly reccomended.

Comment: It's a rip off. You can buy the same thing by Emmi in Waitrose for under a pound and it tastes better.
