Starbucks unveiled a brand new limited edition drink called the Smoked Butterscotch Latte. The drink was launched on Feb. 16 in Starbucks stores across the United States and Canada, and many fans of the drink are comparing it to butterbeer from the "Harry Potter" series, which is sold at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
"It combines Starbucks full-bodied espresso with steamed milk and smoked butterscotch sauce, finished with a sprinkling of smoky butterscotch sugar," a Starbucks spokesperson told BuzzFeed.
It is easy to see why tons of "Harry Potter" fans are flocking to their neighborhood Starbucks to get a sip of this magical latte. The two drinks include a lot of the same ingredients and flavors and come in both liquid and frozen form. In order to conquer the butterbeer craving without flying to Orlando, Fla., one must get to a Starbucks before March 21 when it will be discontinued, according to Bustle. The drink starts at $4.25 for a Tall Smoked Butterscotch Latte.
Along with the butterscotch drink, Starbucks also revealed the Teavana Citrus Green Tea Latte. The drink is made with shade-grown, micro-ground full leaf green tea and steamed milk, sweetened with citrus mint syrup, and finished with lemon essence topping.
"Starbucks Green Tea Latte has been a popular beverage in Starbucks stores ever since we introduced it nine years ago," said Emily Fazio, who is in charge of the team that develops Teavana drinks for Starbucks. "We took flavor cues from the green tea and paired it with ingredients like mint, lemon and basil to make it a refreshing and restorative experience."
Both drinks are available as hot, cold or in Frappuccino form.
