Starbucks Caramelized Honey Latte

Spring is a time of renewal and rebirth — of new caffeinated beverages.

To that end, Starbucks is introducing a new Caramelized Honey Latte. Rejoice!

“One of the things we’re most excited about with Caramelized Honey Latte is how well it works both hot and iced,” Christal Canzler from Starbucks beverage development team said in a press release. “It’s perfect for spring weather.”

Available starting March 22, the drink uses a “slow-cooked caramel honey sauce” mixed with bold espresso and topped with steamed milk. It will be available as a hot, iced or Frappuccino blended beverage in select markets. It will (possibly) cure what ails you, and will likely star in any number of Instagrams hashtagged #spring.

“The caramel honey sauce is slowly kettle-cooked to develop a rich, caramelized flavor that stands up to our signature Starbucks espresso,” Canzler added, which really just makes us think of kettle chips and also kettle corn. Will each Starbucks location be outfitted with a kettle to aid in the production of the new Caramelized Honey Latte? Entirely unclear.

Will wars be waged over the correct pronunciation (“car-mel” vs “care-a-mel”) of “caramel?” You betcha.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
