Where is my Cinnamon Dolce Creme Latte?

, posted: 5-Jun-2007 19:59

For the past month or so I've been enjoying the Cinnamon Dolce Creme Latte at Starbucks. Today I drove from Lincoln rd to Westgate to get one on my lunch break. I ordered one and paid. Then, very apologetically the barista informed me that it was a limited time promotion and was finished. I was shocked! The Cinammon Latte was my favourite drink. The lady could see how disappointed I was, so she gave me a voucher for a free drink of my choice after I changed my order to a Vanilla Latte.

While writing this, I checked the Starbucks website and guess what? The Cinnamon Dolce Creme Latte is listed as one of the classic favourites! Maybe that's just in America. I don't know because there isn't really a Starbucks New Zealand site. Maybe it's still available at other New Zealand outlets. I'll try to find out more tomorrow. Does anyone else know.

Had anyone else out there been enjoying those Lattes? If you have, please join me in requesting Starbucks to bring it back! Next time you're at Starbucks, ask for the Cinnamon Dolce Cream Latte! If we as people rise up, we can claim our birthright, our inalienable right to enjoy the coffee of our choice.....ok a bit of bombastic rhetoric, I know....but say something if you enjoyed it!

Clearly not a Wellingtonian. Good grief, Starbucks. I feel dirty just typing that name out
