You were all about the Pumpkin Spice Latte and thought, “How could my morning coffee drink possibly get any better?” Well, it’s about to — get better that is. Following on the heels of Starbucks’ 2017 holiday cup announcement (and subsequent unveiling), the coffee giant is releasing a new holiday drink. What’s the new flavor that you’ll be craving? We’ve got the scoop on the newest member of Starbucks’ specialty drinks.
And the winner is…Toasted White Chocolate Mocha. Okay, so it’s not really a winner. But it is the new star in Starbucks’ holiday flavor menu. Hmm. Does this new drink’s name sound vaguely familiar to you? Well, it should.
Starbucks already has a White Chocolate Mocha. So what’s the difference between the regular ol’ White Chocolate Mocha and the holiday Toasted White Chocolate Mocha? Obviously, the word “toasted.” But that’s not all.
The holiday drink has a caramelized white chocolatey flavor. And it also has a candy-coated crunch. As if caramelized white chocolate wasn’t tasty enough on its own, Starbucks is adding a whipped cream topping and a sprinkle of candy cranberry sugar. That’s right, candied-cranberry-sugar.
Oh, and if you’re lucky enough to live or vacation somewhere warm, you can order this holiday drink served cold!
