Limited-time beverages and baked goods will make their return to Starbucks stores for the week leading up to Valentine’s Day. Headlining those items is the Cherry Mocha.
The Cherry Mocha is inspired by chocolate covered cherries, featuring a slightly sweet mocha sauce and candied cherry syrup melted together with hot espresso. Steamed milk is added and the beverage is topped with whipped cream and a dusting of sugar and cocoa Valentine’s sprinkles.
Like most of its beverages, the Cherry Mocha can be ordered hot, iced, or blended. It is available from now until Thursday, February 14.
There are two turning items in the bakery case: The Valentine’s Day Cake Pop and the Valentine’s Day Sugar Cookie. The cake pop is a rich chocolate cake, coated with milk chocolatey icing and finished with sprinkles of heart candies. The sugar cookie is heart-shaped and topped with a white chocolatey coating and colorful sprinkles. They are also available until February 14.
These Valentine’s Day beverages and treats join other seasonal winter items, such as the Cinnamon Shortbread Latte and the Red Velvet Loaf Cake. The Cinnamon Shortbread Latte combines espresso with milk and notes of brown butter and vanilla, and is topped with cinnamon and nutmeg. The Red Velvet Loaf Cake is a red velvet cake swirled with vanilla-flavored cake and topped with white chocolate icing.
