Starbucks Honey Latte: Opinions??

I always wondered if it was acceptable to put honey in coffee? I always thought it would be a good alternative to sugar. I would ask people only to get a weird look.

I can't believe now Starbucks is carrying a honey latte. I coulda' been rich! haha

Has anyone had a chance to try it yet? I had a few and find that I'm not really impressed. It's very similar to a Holiday Gingerbread taste and the actual honey floats to the top like olive oil...My advice, keep that lid on when drinking,

Starbucks described the honey latte as: a blend of honey and a touch of warm spice flavors combined with espresso and freshly steamed milk. Topped with whipped cream and a drizzle of pure, golden honey.

I wonder Starbucks will think of next? Perhaps, maple or brown sugar?
