Starbucks has released its 2020 holiday drinks menu!
This holiday season marks the 23rd year that Starbucks has been warming us up with seasonal drinks from its beloved holiday menu. The 2020 holiday menu is now LIVE, which means you can enjoy all the flavors of the season at Starbucks stores nationwide!
In addition to seasonal favorites like Peppermint Mocha, Toasted White Chocolate Mocha, Caramel Brulée Latte, Chestnut Praline Latte, and Eggnog Latte, you’ll find new holiday cups, food items, and gifts available at Starbucks cafés too.
Plus, they brought back the delicious Irish Cream Cold Brew! It’s made with cold brew coffee and Irish cream syrup over ice and topped with vanilla sweet cream cold foam. YUM! Plus, if you’re a frontline worker, check out how you can score a free coffee here!
There’s one notable exception from Starbucks’ 2020 holiday menu…
Run, run as fast as you can… but you’ll have to run all the way to Canada to catch the Gingerbread Latte this year! 😧Starbucks confirmed in a tweet that for the second year in a row, this popular holiday flavor will not be available on holiday menus in the US.
If you don’t live in Canada (where the drink will appear on the Holiday Menu), you can always console yourself with a Cinnamon Dolce Latte, which is said to share a similar flavor profile. Or you could just head on over to Dunkin’, where the Gingerbread Latte earned a spot on the holiday menu this year.
Starbucks’ seasonal food favorites are here for a limited time too, and this year the holiday menu will offer treats including the Cranberry Orange Scone, the Cranberry Bliss Bar, the Sugar Plum Cheese Danish, the Snowman Cookie, and the Snowman Cake Pop.
