We Tasted The New Starbucks Summer Drinks And Here's What We Thought
They're permanent additions to the menu.

Next: the Iced Vanilla Bean Coconutmilk Latte. It looked like your standard iced latte:

TL;DR: The Salted Cream Cold Foam Cold Brew is smooth and has a butterscotch-like taste, while the Iced Vanilla Bean Coconutmilk Latte is a milder alternative to Starbucks' more intense iced coffees or frapps.
