A new espresso beverage is coming to Starbucks.  The Hazelnut Macchiato launches on March 5, 2013, at Starbucks stores everywhere in the U.S. and Canada.  The beverage is a traditional machiatto with a vanilla syrup in the drink itself, and hazelnut sauce on top.  I have heard that the intent is to keep the hazelnut sauce as a permanent offering, but  can’t confirm that for certain.  Since the launch date is right around the corner, it’s possible that plenty of people have had a sneak peek of this drink.  Have you tried it?  What do you think?

A big thank you to the partners who sent me their beautiful Hazelnut Macchiatos pictures!  And if you haven’t tried it, keep your eye out for it on March 5, 2013!
