Starbucks' New Toasted Graham Latte Is Pretty Much Preschool Snack Time in a Cup

It comes in a fancy new paper cup, too.

Since the flavored coffee-loving masses can't subsist on Pumpkin Spice Lattes alone, coffee behemoth Starbucks has launched a brand new fall flavor. According to a press release, as of today, the chain is serving a Toasted Graham Latte. Like the Pumpkin Spice Latte (PSL), the chain also enjoys abbreviating the new latte's name (to TGL).

Besides being "reminiscent of favorite fall memories... inspired by the nostalgic flavor of milk left behind in the cereal bowl," what does a TGL taste like? Essentially, the drink is "graham crackers and milk all grown up." A graham cracker-and-sweet cream base is mixed with steamed milk and espresso, shoved into a glass, and topped with a "sprinkling" of cinnamon graham crackers.

Best of all, the lattes are served in snazzy new fall paper cups — "monogrammed with customers' names in orange Sharpie" — that very well could be from a talented preschooler's coloring book. And for the launch, baristas will be wearing flannel and cozy sweaters, just incase you needed another reminder that it is indeed fall. The TGL is available in the U.S. and Canada until supplies run out — and yes, it can be ordered on Starbucks' mobile order and pay ahead platform which was rolled out nationwide this week.

The chain appears to be drawing a lot of inspiration from a graham cracker boxes as of late. Earlier this summer, Starbucks released a s'mores-flavored Frappuccino which featured the flavors of graham crackers, chocolate, and marshmallow.
