While U.S. consumers are likely familiar with the coffee giant’s holiday drinks such as the Peppermint Mocha, Eggnog Latte, Caramel Brulee Latte and Gingerbread Latte, they may be unfamiliar with the holiday beverages available only in the chain’s international units.
Here’s a look at some of the festive drinks offered at Starbucks locations around the globe. Which ones, if any, would be a hit with U.S. customers?
2. Snowy Cheese Flavored Latte
Some operators have been trying to introduce U.S. audiences to cheese tea, but it hasn’t quite gone mainstream yet. This new drink, served in China, combines espresso with baked cheese-flavored sauce. It’s topped with whipped cream, blueberry sprinkles and star-shaped crisps.
7. Speculoos Latte
The flavor of Belgian spice cookies called speculoos is highlighted in this drink, served in the Asia-Pacific region for the first time. It’s been available in other markets as a Caramel Cinnamon Cookie Latte. The beverage, available hot, iced or as a Frappuccino, is topped with whipped cream, caramel drizzle and crumbled spice cookies.
