Have you tasted the New Starbucks Japan “Seasonal: Autumn Flavors ?”


It seems that Starbucks in Japan is feeling us and has decided to give us a treat to really get us in the mood for autumn with their new range of chestnut flavour lattes and frappuccinos which are due to go on sale  month of September only!

The new drinks, officially titled “Roast Nutty Chestnut Latte” and “Roast Nutty Chestnut Frappuccino” are due to go on sale on September 1 until September 30.


Starbucks Coffee Japan was established in October 1995

The new drinks will be available in a full range of sizes and the latte will be available hot or iced. The “nutty” part comes from the paste used as a base for the drinks, which is comprised of almonds and hazelnuts as well as chestnuts

“Fall melted in a cup” isn’t the most attractive of tag lines, but that’s what Starbucks Japan is using to promote its seasonally limited Roasted Nutty Chestnut line of drinks.

It brings to mind images of soggy leaves and pumpkins being boiled into a puddle — luckily, the actual taste of the latte (¥460 for a tall size) and Frappuccino (¥560 for a tall size) versions is much better.

The latter’s mix of candy chestnuts and chocolate chips is too sweet, but the former’s chestnut sauce adds just the right kick to a regular Starbucks latte.

It might not be autumn in a mug, but it does taste nice on a brisk afternoon.
