The Maple-Kissed Starbucks Latte You Might Have Missed
Starbucks is beloved around the world for both their classic drinks and limited-time seasonal treats. A Starbucks staple for autumn is their famous Pumpkin Spice Latte, but the coffee giant has rereleased another delicious fall item: the Maple Pecan Latte, which is exclusively available in Latin America and the Caribbean.
Originally released in 2017 at select U.S. and Canada locations, the Maple Pecan Latte features espresso, steamed milk, maple pecan sauce, and an “autumn sugar topping,” available hot, iced, or blended. In October of 2022, Starbucks announced that the drink would be served again at selection locations south of the U.S. border.
