Starbucks Iced Caramel VIA

If you’ve been reading CoffeeVanilla for a while, you’d know that I’m quite the fan of Starbucks’ VIA line and all the variety of flavors within it. The newest addition to the family of portable coffees is Iced Caramel VIA. It’s the same size of the Iced VIA, but with the hint of a caramel flavor.

First time around making this coffee, I made the mistake of mixing it with 8oz of water versus 16oz. Huge mistake – I thought I was drinking liquid sugar. Second time around (after having viewed the package and making the realization) I still found the VIA to be very sweet. Perhaps it’s just me, but I feel as though this VIA is much sweeter than the other VIAs, including this Iced VIAs counterpart – the original Iced VIA.

I much prefer the Caramel VIA over this iced version. This one is ok, but I doubt I’ll be purchasing it again due to its mouthful sweetness. Have you tried the latest VIA? What’s your take on it?
