The Ultimate PSL – Part 3: The Powder

Tried the Starbucks instant VIA Pumpkin Spice Latte on my graveyard. It tasted strongly of milk powder, almost like a regular latte.. tres sweet. However, can adjust the amount of powder used… 140 calorie per packet when mixed with 240ml of hot water.

Then, I tried it again on the following graveyard shift, but mixed it with coffee instead:

Better this way. Less sweet, more caffeine, stayed alert all night. The mug is fucking awesome too, kept everything hot. It’s THERMOS brand, all the way from Intelligentsia in Los Angeles.

Overall, it’s fairly convenient to use, and only $7.50 before tax for a box of 4 packets. This could be a potential replacement for the original Starbucks PSL, but still not the same flavor. The search continues…
