Cheaper going to Starbucks and you get a free cup !

You cannot get eight drinks in Starbucks for £ 3.50 only wish you could

If you know someone with a Costco card these work out a lot cheaper getting them from their though

@abbiislslam for one drink yes but this is for 8 or more!

Don't know why people are voting cold, I know it's the usual price of flavoured latte's (caramel latte) but it's vanilla latte's. Never seen them before, great find!

Just a heads up. I bought this in Asda last week on the 3 for 10 price.

how many calories is the vanilla? its all sweeteners

The Costa and Carte Noire Lattes and Cappuccinos aren't included in the 3 for £10.

I would stick with the traditional latte and get the Monin syrup if you are interested in mimicking the Costa experience.

Or chuck a shot of Galliano in there. Much nicer and you get drunk to boot.

So regret buying a Tassimo. No idea why they need to sweeten half their drinks, but after 20 years of not using sugar, it's slowly creeping back into my coffees.

Whilst I am sorry that you are disappointed with your Tassimo, you seem to be blaming it for your lack of willpower or failure to research the product before buying it.

You might check out Aeropress at Argos. That delivers a more high end coffee experience.

New drink varieties is not a deal. This is the normal price for Tesco. And the Morning Cafe works out cheaper in Asda at 3 packs for £10.

So this is why my local Asda has had no stock of Tassimo drinks for a while, and running the 3 for £10 - to clear stock and make room for these new varieties it would seem. Tempted by the vanilla drinks, but just done a large Tassimo website order, hmmmmm.

Absolutely! I'm a complete idiot for thinking sugar would be optional.

Sugar is optional. I can certainly tell if I've forgotten to add sugar or flavoured syrup to my drinks.

I guess it depends which drinks you use, but many are sweetened. Not going to have a war about it anyway, it's not even a Tassimo thread.

This isn't included in the 3 for £10 at asda. I looked an hour ago and it's not part of it. But it is cheaper at Tesco

I wouldn't use such pejorative terms, but when I bought a Tassimo I knew what I was letting myself in for.

If you had spent a few minutes on their website first you would have been equally informed.

No, go on. Do the war. It's what everyone wants secretly anyway.

Wonder if James googles everything he buys for sugar. I didn't expect it in coffee- surely you would add it yourself. You'd can extract it after all...

Hold on I'll google it.

So that would hold true for the hot chocolate drinks too would it?

I bought one of these when they were £30 in costco, amazon.co.uk/Dua…her to heat up skimmed milk. I use with a normal tassimo coffee pod to make healthier lattes, and it seems much creamier than lattes from the milk pods.
The Jacob's reduced sugar ones aren't bad, but I agree there should be at least one option for no added sugar milk. Manufacturers probably don't want to do it because they know it doesn't taste as good.

You are far from alone. Email Tassimo and ask why no unsugared options with the milk pods. I have and many other have judging from facebook and twitter here and in the US so I would expect them to react.
