Would you rather have gourmet cookies delivered with your coffee or gourmet cookies delivered in your coffee?
It seems three of the world’s largest coffee retailers are trying to duplicate the success of the Pumpkin Spice Latte by following up that fall tradition with a new winter specialty: cookie-flavored coffee. According to the Boston Globe, there will be four new cookie coffees released by Caribou Coffee, Dunkin’ Donuts, and Starbucks.
Caribou Coffee recently released its Gingersnap Cookie Mocha which includes hints of ginger, allspice, and clove.
Starbucks’ new Chestnut Praline Latte is espresso, steamed milk, and flavors of caramelized chestnuts and spices topped off with whipped cream and spiced praline crumbs. It’s the first new holiday drink from Starbucks in years.
Not to be outdone, Dunkin’ Donuts is releasing two cookie-flavored drinks. Topped with red and green sugar, the Sugar Cookie Latte emulates the taste of frosted cookies. Meanwhile, the Snickerdoodle Cookie Latte mixes sugar and cinnamon.
While that all sounds tempting to us, we’d rather keep it simple. What about gourmet cookies from Fairytale Brownies served alongside a hot cup of black coffee?
And, during the holiday season, you can have your gourmet cookies delivered in wintry seasonal bands inscribed with Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, or Celebrate the Season. Have gourmet cookies delivered with your coffee – not in your coffee – today!
