Verdict: Starbucks Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate

So I tried that Starbucks Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate concoction (hey, this week seems to be all about trying sweet, new things…)

Anyway, my verdict is a 5 out of 10. Total MEH.

It was a bit too chocolate-y (which was the issue with their Chantico a while back), with 4 chocolate mixtures in the actual drink.

The best part about it was the whipped cream, drizzled with caramel and then that salt thrown on top of it.

Caramel + Salt = AWESOME (which is why it got 4 extra stars)

But in the end, it`s a bit too rich and kind of not sweet enough or creamy enough. Not my cup of hot chocolate, really.

However, now I`m lemming after caramel + salt. I`m going to salt sweet things from now on to see what flavour profiles burst out on my tongue…
