Apparently our local Starbucks has a new pastry in stock these days. I don’t know if it’s legit new or just “new to us” new, but it is called the Michigan Cherry Oat Bar… and it happens to be Mr. Eats’ new favorite thing these days. So, of course, he requested that I make a from-scratch version. When I told him that would be difficult to do having never tasted the sweet treat, one appeared at our home within days.
THE CHESTNUT PRALINE LATTE HAS ARRIVED. I tried it this morning just for you all… and the verdict? Actually pretty good. I’ve never had a chestnut but I assume that is what they taste like. It was nutty with a slight hint of cinnamon and all in all, I would say it was pretty good. I would definitely order it again.
