To celebrate the introduction of its new espresso-based drinks to the coffee chain’s locations in Buffalo, N.Y., the Buffalo latte promises to be “an unexpectedly delicious sweet and spicy treat.”
According to the company, the drink will consist of “freshly brewed espresso, steamed milk, mocha and bold Buffalo sauce flavour” and will be topped with a “dusting of zesty Buffalo seasoning.”
The reaction online to the news of the sweet and spicy beverage was divided.
Journalist Ben Tsujimoto reviewed the drink for The Buffalo News.
“The heat is subtle and emerges at the end of each sip; it’s not a jarring flavour like if you were drinking a messy blend of espresso and Frank’s Hot Sauce, or if you dipped a chicken wing in a glass of hot chocolate milk,” he wrote.
The limited edition drink starts at US$2.79 and is only available at two locations in Buffalo until Oct. 20.
