Accio venti.

Does your mouth salivate at the thought of salty, sweet, frothy, creamy caramel butterbeer?

I would say "yes" except my mouth is now full of my own saliva.

Then you have to try Starbucks' new limited-edition Smoked Butterscotch Latte.

"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.

DAYUMMMMMM.

People flocked to their local SBux to get a taste of this ~magical~ new beverage.

Of course, the drink contains coffee, which is NOT an ingredient in classic butterbeer. (To hack the recipe, consider asking for no espresso so it's all just milky latte goodness.)

For @ttanya_k, it tasted like "a waste of money and broken dreams."

Ouch.
