Once Christmas is past, the red menus come down and they stop selling gingerbread latte -- except in a couple of outlets where they've overstocked, where they continue to sell it until it runs out a week or so later.
Except that my local Starbucks is still selling it -- many weeks after the close of the season. I've tried elsewhere, and nowhere else can I find a Starbucks that still has gingerbread latte in stock.
Until today. I've come into the Starbucks on Islington High Street, opposite the antiques place... and they're still doing gingerbread lattes.
