New Dunkin Donuts Gingerbread Latte Against Starbucks Gingerbread Latte
Holiday season has arrived and the battle of the delicious holiday treats is on. Recently, Dunkin Donuts has introduced their own Gingerbread Latte drink to their consumers and it’s their latest addition to its line of espresso drinks. As you know, Starbucks is also celebrating the return of the holiday season with their usual holiday drinks as well. Not sure if there’s going to be a real battle for this coffee drink in the market, but whose Gingerbread Latte drink tastes better?
Since Starbucks Gingerbread Latte is a seasonal drink, the design on the cup is a lot better than the design on the Dunkin Donuts cup. The Gingerbread aroma from the Dunkin Donuts Gingerbread Latter cup smells a bit stronger than the Starbucks Gingerbread Latte, but both textures are very similar after mixing it with their toppings. As for the taste, the Dunkin Donuts Gingerbread Latte has much stronger sweet taste than the Starbucks Gingerbread Latte and same for the Gingerbread Latte flavor as well. However, the spiciness of the drink goes to the Starbucks side because it’s more recognizable. Also, the Dunkin Donuts Latte tasted more rich and creamy where as Starbucks Latte tasted watery. Both lattes mixed very well with their flavors, but it’s just one has stronger flavor taste than the other.
The ingredients for Dunkin Donuts Gingerbread Latte includes: Milk, Brewed Espresso Coffee, Gingerbread Swirl Syrup [Sweetened Condensed Skim Milk, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Sugar, Water, Brown Sugar, Natural Flavors, Caramel Color, Potassium Sorbate (Preservative), Spice Extractives, Salt, Soy Lecithin]. More Detail As for the Starbucks Gingerbread Latte, their nutritional information is calculated based on their own standardized recipes and because their beverages are handcrafted and may be customized, the exact information could be varied. However, this coffee drink is made from Espresso coffee and steamed milk, then added a few squirts of gingerbread syrup before adding the whipped cream and sprinkled with nutmeg toppings. More Detail
Personally, I like the New Dunkin Donuts Gingerbread Latte because it has more taste than the Starbucks Gingerbread Latte. One thing I want to mention was that I did not get the colorful sparkling topping on the Latte from Dunkin Donuts. As for which Latte drink will bring you close to the holiday mood or feeling, I would have to say the Latte from Starbucks because of the design and their whole marketing campaign.
