Tim Hortons is selling Buffalo sauce-flavored lattes - and people are disgusted

This has been a season for upheavals in the coffee world.

If you're in the area and looking to give the spicy latte a go, they will be on sale from $2.79 at 4849 Transit Road in Depew, NY and 3470 Main St in Buffalo, NY while supplies last. The rest of the chain's latte flavors are caramel, vanilla, mocha, and of course, pumpkin spice. It's a fitting tribute to Buffalo, home of the titular sauce, but if that doesn't sound quiiite so appealing to you, rest easy. The Buffalo sauce has unusual ingredients, similar to Mexican hot chocolate in particular (salt, butter, chocolate, chili peppers), but the Worcestershire and vinegar could make things rough in the end. The sauce that you put on chicken wings. "The unlikely pairing comes together to create an unexpectedly delicious sweet and spicy treat". Fun fact that makes the insane combo slightly more acceptable: both the sauce and Tim Hortons were created in 1964.

The temperatures are dropping, footballs are flying, and Fall is absolutely upon us. So why shouldn't we be able to drink them too?

According to a press release from the company, the Buffalo Latte will only be available at two Tim Hortons locations in Buffalo, NY, made with "freshly brewed espresso, steamed milk, mocha, and bold buffalo sauce flavor". That doesn't mean you can't try.
