This week I decided to try my Starbucks Iced Latte with half and half instead of regular milk. While the barista taking my order did ask me to confirm, he made it without further comment. It really goes to show that they don’t care what you order and you shouldn’t feel embarrassed to order something that’s a better fit for your tastes or diet.
The half and half latte was much better than the heavy whipped cream latte. I actually got used to the additional creaminess and was able to finish it this time! I did notice that without any additional sweetener it was a bit sour on its own. I haven’t had much luck with sugar free sweeteners in cold drinks in the past so I will continue ordering it plain.
In all, I still think that my whole milk is my favorite type of Starbucks Iced Latte. It’s much creamier than the 2% that’s used in the standard drinks, and doesn’t have to sourness in unsweetened cream.
