- So real talk, it's getting cold out and I, I'm kind of bummed out, but I do love everything to do with fall. I love the leaves, I love how cozy it is. More than anything, I like Starbucks drinks. Yeah so I thought today we could do a really fun video where we go to Starbucks together and I order all the Fall flavors of Starbucks drinks, taste test them and tell you which one is the best for you. Okay let's do it. Alright, I almost ran into a pole trying to get this shot but I'm gonna go for I think five drinks, five of their top drinks and taste them, see how fall tasting they really are, how fall-esque can a drink be, you know? Okay so that was a journey and a half. Who knew that carrying six Starbucks drinks, a camera and a tripod was gonna be an issue? I sure didn't. Okay so here's how it's gonna work. I'm gonna taste it, I'm gonna describe it to you and then I'm going to rate it and we will see at the end which one is the most autumnal. What is going on with this? Okay number one, tried and true, the Pumpkin Spiced Latte. White girls all over the world are going nuts for this. They put on their Uggs, get that dark lip going. Let's try it out. Oh, oh gosh. Boy does this take me up. I love it. It's like a little sweet for me. I got it regular standard how it comes and I usually like it half sweet. Really nice and spicy. You get a little bit of cinnamon, some cloves, not really any pumpkin. I never have actually tasted pumpkin in this drink, but it's just like spicy and warm and cozy. You want it while you're like wearing one of those like oatmeal colored knitted sweaters. This is golden. For me, this is a seven out of 10. This is a must-get in the season and it screams autumn so there you go. Okay this next one I've never had before. This is a salted caramel hot chocolate. Oh okay. Okay. This one's not wowing me. It's there's too much going on and it's a little bit fake-tasting. Like the caramel doesn't taste real. I imagine like anyone under 15 loves this. Anyone who has complained to their mom about trying to get their first tattoo or dying their hair is gonna love this. Oh god, good god. Eugh Sorry, it's fine. Oh it's four out of 10. Okay this next one is a, why am I still wearing this scarf? I'm so hot. It's not actually that cold out you know. Like the leaves are turning, but only just. Toronto, we don't get like proper fall until like much later in the season, but where I grew up in Alberta, gosh they've already, they're already under a foot of snow. That's more about Canadian geography than you wanted to know. Okay so this one is Cinnamon Dolce Latte, another one I've had before. It has a coffee component, milk component and a cinnamon Dolce component. Oh interesting, okay. So this is like, I don't know. Very sweet, I like it. It's so hard because I think pumpkin spice, it's the leader in the race at least so it's hard to compare this to that because it's just never going to be quite as good. There's so much nostalgia in the pumpkin spice. This one's gonna be about a seven. Did I give Pumpkin Spice a 10 out of 10? This should be a 10 out of 10. I'll rephrase. Whatever I said, strike it from the record. Okay onto then next one. You can see, I'm taking this very seriously. This is very very important to me. Okay so this one is a Peppermint White Mocha. I already know this is up my alley. I already know that. Oh god I just, oh I just love peppermint so much. This is very candy cane Christmas chocolatey rich kind of fudgey. This is delicious. This is a nine out of 10. Gosh I love peppermint and you know what, if you're not into peppermint, goyourself 'cause this is amazing. Okay this next one I used to love. This is one of those, what is this called, Caramel Apple Spice. So basically what they do is they steam apple juice, they add in caramel flavoring and then they top it with whip cream. So it's meant to have this like richness to it, but also kind of like that crisp bite of apple juice and then sweetness of caramel. I used to like kill for this, like not literally. I don't have a record, but metaphorically, I would slit a man's throat for this. Yeah, yeah. That's doing good things. Something about it that is so Christmas, Fall. It sucks outside let's just treat ourselves and get fat and watch Netflix. Like this screams like just let yourself go. Alright and now for the last one, drumroll please. This is the Cardamom Latte. I've never seen this before. What could be in it? Probably cardamom and coffee and milk. Huh. I wonder what's in this. Like do you think they just sprinkle cardamom or do they have like a cardamom sweetener 'cause it's not very sweet and I like that. As just like a plain latte drinker, this is nice. It's got like a little air of sweetness. Wait, did I rate the last one? Eight out of 10. This one's got like a little air of like spiciness. It's like warm and cozy, but it's not like sickeningly sweet. Gosh, that is good. That's a nine out of 10. Well there you have my autumnal drink taste testing. So what is your favorite drink?
