Cinnamon dolce creme is just delish!

Unfortunately they discontinued their sugar-free version of this coffee syrup several months back. If you prefer to use sugar-free there are other brands to choose from. If you are a fan of cinnamon dolce but want a shortcut, just get the pre-made syrup.

You can buy syrups directly from most Starbucks stores although seasonal and premium flavours usually won’t be available. I’ve tried different coffee syrups and the Torani brand is pretty good and they have a cinnamon and also a brown sugar cinnamon option.
