Us foodies love a good debate.
Is a hot dog a sandwich? Is it appropriate to bite into a burrito from the side?
As always, there are some seriously savage reviews being posted online, along with some positive ones too.
The new drink, made with juniper syrup for a “hint of the evergreens”, has only been available for one day, but people are already airing their opinions on social media.

Apparently Starbucks controls the weather now. First real snow, first holiday drink but dang that juniper latte 👌👌. It’s like Seattle in a cup #starbucks #redcups #juniperlatte… https://t.co/NHSDiDRMhQ

Tried the new Juniper latte from Starbucks while waiting for the school bus this afternoon. Not sure how I feel about my hot beverages tasting like trees… 🌲🌲🌲 Jury’s still out 😂 #momlife #wellcaffeinated #juniperlatte #starbucks #gradstudent #gradschool #NP #nurse #jitsgirl #bjj #brazilianjiujitsu #bjjwomen
Some people have been cautiously optimistic about the new nature-centric concoction, but others are clearly not into the festive new beverage.
Also, since we’re here. #juniperlatte …Juniper is for gin and olives. 🤮

@StarbucksCanada I’m very sad this morning. Was so excited to get my first #HolidaySpiceFlatWhite of the season to find out it’s discontinued 😭. Please bring it back! The #JuniperLatte doesn’t work for me. #AndIDidntReceiveTheReusableCup

But that’s not to say that some people aren’t completely loving it, either. It’s clearly much-loved by some, one person described it as a drink that transported them “into a forest of Christmas trees with the nice woody aroma and the sweetness of the festive season.”
Well OK then.
