Hello Toasted Graham Latte (New drink at Starbucks beginning 9/23/15)

Starting September 23rd, there's a new latte in town. It's called the "Toasted Graham Latte." I have to confess, I haven't tried it yet. This new drink is already mentioned on a Starbucks.ca page listing beverages: Untitled toasted graham latteGiven the description of the drinks, I assume that the Toasted Graham Latte is the one in the copper mug. Starbucks Canada describes it as "Nothing says 'yay fall' like ... our new Toasted Graham Latte made with graham and sweet cream. [It] can be served hot, iced or blended to suite whatever type of autumn day you're having."

While I haven't tried the new latte yet, I did ask a barista here in Seattle to blend some Toasted Graham Latte syrup in with a Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino. That was an interesting experiment. The syrup itself has a pretty mild flavor. I tried the new Toasted Graham topping atop the Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino, and it was delicious. I've been saying this for years but Starbucks is the master of coming up with perfect toppings for drinks. I could see a whole set of Starbucks toppings for home use for cupcakes, beverages, ice cream and more! ;) The new Toasted Graham topping is slightly sweetened graham cracker crust with a very find powdery texture.

Here's another look at the drink. A very nice random image sent my way:

Enjoy the new drink! Keep in mind that this is a seasonal beverage and it doesn't start until September 23rd!

(Thank you Starbucks Canada for inspiring me to write this! ;) Just to be clear, this drink is launching in the US and Canada on September 23rd. My inspiration for writing this came from seeing that an image of the drink was already on the Starbucks Canada beverages page.)
