Maple Lattes Get a Celeb Coffee Following; Will They Catch on as a Trend?

Could Maple Lattes Be the Next Big Seasonal Coffee Drink?

Despite well-timed seasonal drink promotions at nationwide coffee chains, I couldn't help but notice that Winter beverages are looking less-than-creative this year. Now that peppermint mochas and pumpkin spice lattes are household phrases, what's the new flavor of the month?

New couple Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal might have the answer: maple lattes. In the past week, the two have been spotted at beaneries across the country, sampling versions of maple coffee drinks in Brooklyn, NY, and two Nashville, TN, coffeehouses.

Although a latte with maple flavoring made the rounds in the Northeast and Canada as recently as five years ago, it's not been seen at mainstream coffee chains in recent times, despite scattered campaigns to bring it back. Given the trend of the tree sap in tipples, could Taylor and Jake single-handedly push Grade B maple syrup back into the coffee mainstream?

I would definitely try this, I'm tired of the regular holiday flavors lately (and if you don't like peppermint or pumpkin, well, isn't that too bad?). I love maple syrup, so I'd love to see this at my local coffeehouse. FinnLover, I would pay a good bit of money for a Nougat Hot Chocolate, lol. Yum!

Maple lattes are fine. I would like to see marzipan lattes, sticky toffee pudding lattes, cranberry hot chocolates, nougat hot chocolates, and apple pie white hot chocolate. :drool:

Oddly enough, I'm not a fan of maple syrup. However, I love maple candies and cookies. Perhaps a maple latte is in my future!
