Glitter Gold Latte

When traveling on a recent girls’ trip to Chicago, we came across Goddess and the Baker.latte

And while I was plenty happy with my bacon, egg and cheese croissant, the star of the show was my Glitter Gold Latte.latte

Glitter was somewhat of a staple in my life growing up. We used glitter on school projects, silk flower arrangements, edges and trims of costumes, bows and even a few pairs of shoes/shoelaces back in the day. In fact, there’s a running joke within our family that everyone who visits Grandma and Grandpa’s house goes back to their own homes with at least a speck of glitter somewhere on them (that’s how you know you were there!).

So, when I saw Glitter Gold Latte on the menu, I eagerly asked the young woman behind the counter what was in it. She replied, rather unenthusiastically, I might add, “It’s a vanilla latte with gold glitter.”latte

Thankfully, I didn’t let her lack of marketing prowess persuade me to choose something else. I stuck to my guns and said, “Perfect. I’ll take one.”latte

And when it arrived, it tasted as pretty as it looked.latte

While the edible glitter trend has been in full swing for a few years now, I had never enjoyed a morning coffee with sparkles before. And after I did — you guessed it — the sparkles followed me all day long.latte latte latte latte

Just like they do when I visit my old home.
