Starbucks’ Iced Caramel Cloud Macchiato – Worth It?

Iced Caramel Cloud Macchiato

My go to Starbucks drink is very basic – a grande iced coffee with almond milk. It never disappoints and always hits the spot.

During Starbucks’ happy hour last week, I decided to try something new. Just like everyone else on this planet, I have seen Ariana Grande’s posts regarding the cloud macchiato.

Starbucks’ happy hour provided quite the deal – $3 for a grande handcrafted espresso beverage. I took advantage of the awesome price and gave Ariana’s drink a shot.

To be honest, the Iced Caramel Cloud Macchiato was a disappointment. I will not be ordering it again. Since I try my hardest to avoid dairy (I’m lactose intolerant), I had the beverage with almond milk. Maybe this was my mistake? Then again, my mom had the regular version and also did not fancy it.

We had to wait longer than normal for our drinks. Our first drinks were, in fact, incorrect so we had to wait for them to be remade. Maybe they were made in a hasty manner and that is why we did not enjoy them? Or maybe we would not have enjoyed them regardless of the situation.

Yes, the concept is cute and who doesn’t want to drink what Ari is drinking – BUT the truth is, it is not worth it. I am glad it was only $3.

From now on, I will gladly stick to my basic grande iced coffee with almond milk… least until the next fad drink is shoved in my path via social media.
