MAXWELL HOUSE CAFÉ COLLECTION Crème Latte
This is ok if you like a very sweet beverage. Not for me. Also, Tassimo, please be clear on the product description the milk is Semi Sweet, which is different than other Lattes (like the Gevalia for example).

I never had the old Maxwell house latte, but this one is great! I like my drinks sweet, and I can definitely say that this latte is NOT very sweet. Those who think it is too sweet must really like no sweetness at all. That said, I thought it was a pretty great latte. Good blend of milk and espresso.

Better than discontinued Starbucks latte
Frankly, before I ranked Maxwell latte the lowest among Starbucks, Gevalia and Maxwell. I did however drink Maxwell concurrently with the other 2 because of the lower price.
After Starbucks are discontinued, then I did not see either Gevalia or Maxwell in stores after months later. After reading some low-rating reviews lately, I was a little bit hesitating since I normally don't put much sugar in my capuccino/latte. Anyway, found the latte at Target yesterday and gave it a try. Guess what, it turns out to be so good - even better than Starbucks latte.
I used to like Starbucks latte more than the other 2 because of the milk - creamier. Between Gevalia and Maxwell, I liked Gevalia better because of stronger espresso.
With new Maxwell latte, the milk is creamier, and I also feel the espresso is a little bit stronger. That creates a perfect cup of latte for me.
Regarding the semi-sweet thing, I normally put about 1 SMALL coffee spoon to Starbuck latte and about half or 2/3 of the same-size spoon to old Maxwell latte. With the NEW one, I don't even need to put sugar. How convenient it is!
Thanks Tassimo for changing the formula.

I don't understand why anyone felt the need to mess with the formulation of the creamer. Surely in this day and age the trend is towards less additives and yet here goes Tassimo actually sweetening a product. Here's the thing - if you want an unsweetened product to be sweeter you can add your own sweetener but if the product is already sweetened it's ruined for those of us who don't want a sweet latte. Backwards move Tassimo!
