Starbucks’s newest dessert in a bakery box is done with one of a best spreadable substances on earth: cookie butter. The new Starbucks Cookie Butter Bar ($2) is done with gingerbread-like Speculoos cookies on a bottom, a covering of slimey cookie butter on top, followed by a covering of abounding vanilla cream cheese frosting, and surfaced with dejected Speculoos cookies. It’s buttery, crunchy, sweet, and sour all during once.
Out of all a new dishes and drinks Starbucks has expelled this year, including sous vide egg bites and Spring macchiatos, this is hands down a favorite object of a year so far. The thick covering of cream cheese frosting atop a buttery cookie widespread and crunchy cookie bottom takes these bars over a edge. The subsequent time we need a mid-afternoon latte and honeyed treat, we suggest grouping your favorite grande caffeinated libation and a Cookie Butter Bar (or two).
