Nescafé Café Menu Gingerbread Latte (Limited Edition) Review
Whilst in Tesco browsing through the new Christmas products recently, I also spotted this Nescafé Limited Edition Gingerbread flavour Latte. I don't usually buy Latte drink mixes from supermarkets as I prefer the real thing from Costa, but the "limited edition" tag on this sucked me right in!
Gingerbread is a pretty common seasonal flavour for Lattes - most coffee chains like Starbucks, Costa and Caffé Nero have all done them, so it's no surprise Nescafé have chosen this as a limited edition. I'm glad they did because it's a warm, comforting flavour which is perfect for cold Winter days.
I made up a sachet as directed but added an extra teaspoon of sugar. I used a coffee glass to make it feel more special and authentic:
It tasted very comforting and milky, with a lovely warming ginger kick. It wasn't too strong or overpowering in flavour - just mild, sweet and milky.
Overall, I think this is a good limited edition from Nescafé that is perfect for the Winter months. I can definitely see myself sipping on one of these during cold, frosty mornings for a little pick-me-up!
Ok, enough talk of Winter...it's still only September!
