While fall is most notably the season for Pumpkin Spice lattes, this all-new Starbucks hot drink for autumn cleverly pays tribute to nostalgic childhood mornings with a beverage inspired by cereal and milk. The Toasted Graham latte (abbreviated to TGL) is the latest seasonal beverage to be added to the menu.
The Toasted Graham latte is suppose to encompass all the nostalgic tastes of breakfast and the last bites of milky cereal with a grown-up twist. The drink features a graham cracker-infused cream base topped with espresso, steamed milk and a cinnamon graham cracker topping. The Toasted Graham cracker will be served in Starbucks' new fall paper cups that feature a black and white autumnal design of leaves and nature with accents of red, orange and yellow.
