Starbucks Japan Whips Up Lemon-Flavored Latte That Tastes Like ‘Cheesecake’

Lemon is what you squeeze into tea and water, not coffee right? But what if you’re craving some good zest with your morning pick-me-up, because reasons? It’s a good thing Starbucks drinks tend to be more dessert than coffee, huh?

In its Japanese locations, which seem to get at least five new flavors for our every one, Starbucks just introduced a new “Creamy Vanilla Latte with Lemony Swirl.” According to Brand Eating, this entails a vanilla and lemon curd latte base topped with lemon peel-flavored white chocolate, bits of dried lemon peel, lemon vanilla sauce, and whipped cream; also available as a Frappuccino.

Reviews on the Starbucks Japan Facebook suggest the drink tastes “refreshing” and a bit like “cheesecake.” According to reddit, the name is also “f–king annoying to say in Japanese.”

The Latest Unnecessary Oreo Flavor: Lemon

lemon-oreos

Isn’t lemon, like, an old person flavor?

For reasons still incomprehensible to us, Oreo continues to release blasé after blasé special-edition cookies, the latest of which reminds us vaguely of weekend trips to grandma’s house and being forced to watch her cats. Impulsive Buy reports the new Lemon Oreos may be similar to Oreo’s previous limited edition “Lemon Twist” cookies, though presumably with at least 50% more lemony-fresh flavor. At least.

Ahem, anyone for a spot of afternoon tea?
