Starbucks wastes no time switching from Halloween to winter holiday theme
Starbucks waited merely three days into November before switching from Halloween to their winter holiday theme offerings, consisting of four new cup designs and a new winter beverage.
The new drink is Iced Sugar Cookie Almondmilk Latte, which is Starbucks' first-ever non-dairy holiday drink. It consists of sugar cookie flavored syrup, Starbucks Blonde Espresso, ice, almond milk, and red and green cookie sprinkles.
It would be the earliest that Starbucks would be selling its returning drink Irish Cream Cold Brew. The drink wasn't released until December 3 when it debuted in 2019.
Aside from the Irish Cream Cold Brew, Starbucks'returning beverages are Peppermint Mocha, Caramel Brulee Latte, Chestnut Praline Latte, and Toasted White Chocolate Mocha.
For its pastry offerings, Starbucks has the new Reindeer Cake Pop, and three returning items: the Sugar Plum Danish, Cranberry Bliss Bar, and Snowman Cookie.
Collectors would not miss Starbucks holiday cups with four "gifting-inspired" designs.
