Yesterday was the first day of Spring, and Starbucks has kicked off the season of renewal with a sweet new addition to their happy family of flavors. The Caramelized Honey Latte will be available for a limited time starting on Tuesday March 22 in the United States and Canada. But, you may be asking as you work the sweet, springtime beverage into your caffeine delivery rotation, how much does a Starbucks Caramelized Honey Latte cost? Long story short: The price will vary slightly depending on where you live.
Just like with most of the Starbucks menu (and, indeed, with most menus belonging to national chains), the price point for this beverage, flavored with a slow-cooked caramel honey sauce mixed with espresso, is tied to the cost of living in the area where each store is located. According to a Starbucks spokesperson, the price for a Tall, 12-oz. Caramelized Honey Latte will vary from $4.25 to $4.75. In relation to other Starbucks drinks, this places the CHL around the middle of the pack — about the same as most of the other limited-edition beverages the coffee house has debuted recently, like the Molten Chocolate Latte or the Smoked Butterscotch Latte.
For the curious, the drink boasts about 75 mg of caffeine — almost as much as a small can of Red Bull, which is not always the case for Starbucks seasonal drinks. The Cherry Blossom Frappuccino, for example, was largely caffeine-free, thanks to its strawberry creme base.
Starbucks also knows that spring weather can be fickle, so while supplies of the Caramelized Honey flavor last, patrons will be able to order the drink in three convenient varieties — hot latte, iced latte, and Frappuccino, which is perfect for places where the temperature can swing a good 40 degrees over the course of a regular spring day.
Other big news for Starbucks this spring includes a cameo by the Cherry Blossom Frappuccino, the glorious return of the Mango Black Tea Lemonade (which we saw previously during the summer of 2015), and the introduction of their new rewards program structure. So, to make sure you maximize your Starbucks Stars, you might just want to go ahead and order all three versions of the drink during this spring season.
