Best Winter Coffee Flavors 2022/23

by Jelissa Hanley

Now that winter is finally here, it’s time to find out which coffee flavor is favored throughout Methuen. The flavor options were Peppermint Mocha, Chestnut Praline, Caramel Brûlée Latte, Sugar Cookie Almond Milk Latte, Iced Sugar Cookie Milk Almond Latte, and Toasted White Chocolate Mocha. I interviewed 111 of the citizens of Methuen and visitors.

Let’s dive into some opinions on the winter coffee flavors. I asked a few people 2 questions about the coffee flavors and their opinions on them. The questions were “Which flavor sounds the most delicious?” and “Which flavor sounds the worst?”. Freshman Student Alexys Feugill for the most delicious she said “The Sugar Cookie Almond Latte, because the sugar cookie just sounds really good” and for the worst drink she said “The Peppermint Mocha Latte sounds the worst, something about mint and chocolate doesn’t work for me in my head.”

Freshman student Kathryn , in regards to the most delicious drink she said “I feel like Chestnut Praline looks the best, it just kind of grabs my attention.” and for the worst drink she said “Honestly none of them, they all sound like they’re really good.” Finally I asked Journalism Teacher, Mr. McKenna for the most delicious one he said “I’ll have to go with peppermint mocha for my favorite. That is such a classic flavor, it sums up ‘winter’ really well.” and for the worst one he said “Worst is a tough one. Either the caramel brûlée or the toasted white chocolate sound the least appetizing. The brûlée sounds overly sweet, and I’m just not a fan of white chocolate in general.”

Of all the options the winner was Toasted White Chocolate Mocha. Toasted White Chocolate Mocha is an “espresso paired with caramelized white chocolate combined with steamed milk and topped with whipped cream and festive holiday sprinkles and crispy white pearls” (Starbucks). Even though this drink happens to be my favorite, I was surprised to find out that this was the most favored drink.

It is so interesting to see all of the responses to the different types of drinks. The top three drinks that people liked were Toasted White Chocolate Mocha (23 votes), Caramel Brûlée Latte (22 votes), and Peppermint Mocha (20 votes). It was a pretty close call and I personally agree with the order of the flavors. What’s your favorite winter coffee flavor?
