First off, apologies for the horrible pun! It is late and I have been enduring 2nd grade knock knock jokes for a week so my threshold for good humor is dangerously low.
What is Caramel Flan you may ask; it is a creamy custard with a caramel sauce. If you haven’t had the actual dessert stop what you are doing and head to your nearest Mexican restaurant and order the #10 and for dessert, the flan. If you are counting calories, skip the margaritas and order dessert, it is that good! (Unless you are my husband and think that dessert must have some chocolate component.) Sadly for chocoholics, there is no chocolate in traditional flan. It is a concoction of condensed milk, evaporated milk, sugar, eggs and vanilla.
I can see how Starbucks was able to translate most of the ingredients into a latte. I had one the other day from my local Target Starbucks barista. It was sweet and creamy and had a rich caramel sauce not unlike a Caramel Macchiato. The Caramel Flan Latte is much sweeter and the barista said that the caramel sauces are different. It was tasty, rich and nice for something different but it will not replace my two favs … the Caramel Macchiato and the Peppermint Mocha.
So, if you like sweet and creamy lattes this might be a worth a try. If you have tried it I would love to hear your thoughts!
