Starbucks Eggnog Latte? Why Mess with a Good thing?

When I walked into Starbucks the other day, I had my mind set on my usual fall drink, the pumpkin spice latte. A classic, yet delicious drink. Now what caught my eye and steered me in a different direction was the eggnog latte. What could go wrong with combining two delicious things together? Apparently, everything.

I made the mistake of ordering the Venti (large for all you non-Starbucks drinkers). I think I got too excited about the potential and there was only one direction for it to go.

It seemed as though the eggnog was significantly hotter than regular milk after being frothed. Due to the heat, the traditional eggnog flavor lessened and became unappealing.

The more I drank, the more I wish I got something else. Lattes should be left plain or with pumpkin spice. The same could be said of the eggnog. Give me that plain any day or mix it with some whiskey, and I'll be a happy man.

To those who have had this drink, and like it, please let me know what was appealing to you. To those who have had the same experience as me, let me know. What are your favorite coffee combos or least favorite? Let's see how many responses we can get and maybe start a poll on the matter.
