Starbucks VIA® Latte Caffè Mocha
I am so disappointed that Starbucks is not listening to their customers on this one. Please bring back the old mocha via. This is awful!!!

YUCK is right!
Totally unacceptable and I will not buy again. I MISS the old Via Mocha, and bought this hoping it would be similar. It's NOT! Please bring Via Mocha back. I wished I'd known it was being discontinued so I could have stocked up.
This Via Latte is no substitute at all. I love Starbucks, but I DESPISE this product.

Disgusting is all I can say. Doesn't even taste like coffee, tastes more like a weird hot chocolate drink. I LOVED the VIA Mocha packets you guys had before. Why did you have to change it??? I hope you bring thing back. For now I've switched to something else :(

Taste fine if made right but now I am being Swindled in Quantity!
I actually prefer these as Ice Coffee. They blend much better if you have a small electric frother. I blend about 3 ounces filtered water with 5 ounces of Almond or Soy milk (Regular milk is fine for everyone else :) then add the packet and blend it all together with my milk frother. Be sure to leave about 1 inch from the top of the glass for mixing. If you make it too full, the frother will just splatter coffee. Keep the frother low, almost to the bottom of the cup works best for a well blended (No "Chunky" stuff) coffee drink.
Now for the bad part... and the reason why my review is only 3 stars....
I used to buy these all the time but now I don't unless I can get them on sale at a grocerey store. Reason being...They are giving you ONE LESS PACKET in the box then they used too but are still charging you for the SAME PRICE. I HATE being swindled like that so I no longer purchase these at any Starbucks location! Nice way to drum off customers Starbucks...keep pushing the "less is more" BS and I wont buy Starbucks ever again. Feel me guys? Listen to your customers...they are the reason you exist. Thank you!

After using the old Mocha VIA packets for several years during camping or hunting trips was unable to find them at my grocery store. As a result tried this Latte Caffe Mocha and it's awful!. Worst coffee combination ever! Was unable to even drink it and threw the rest of them in the garbage The old Mocha VIA packets were much much better please bring them back immediately! Thanks.
