With summer a little over a month away, Starbucks is preparing for the change in seasons with two new cooling beverages – the Chocolate Java Mint Frappuccino blended beverage and White Chocolate Macadamia Cream Cold Brew – available now.
The Starbucks Chocolate Java Mint Frappuccino blended beverage features Starbucks Frappuccino roast coffee, sweet chocolate and refreshing mint flavors with rich Frappuccino chips blended into a cooler-than-cool treat. The beverage is finished with a layer of mocha sauce, whipped cream and a chocolate cookie mint sprinkle topping.
“With the Chocolate Java Mint Frappuccino, we wanted to take a new approach to the classic combination of mint and chocolate to create a blended coffee beverage that elicits nostalgia for one of our favorite summer treats,” says Maureen Matthews of the Starbucks beverage development team. “The new white chocolate mint sauce is subtle and creamy, and when paired with the crunch of Frappuccino chips and a swirl of rich mocha, is reminiscent of mint chocolate chip ice cream poolside on a warm summer day.”
The Starbucks White Chocolate Macadamia Cream Cold Brew combines the balanced and smooth taste of Starbucks Cold Brew with a summer twist. The beverage is sweetened with macadamia syrup, topped with a white chocolate macadamia cream cold foam and finished with toasted cookie crumbles.
“When creating Starbucks White Chocolate Macadamia Cream Cold Brew, we were inspired by memories of fresh macadamia nuts on tropical vacations and the distinct flavor of white chocolate macadamia nut cookies,” says Matt Thornton of the Starbucks beverage development team. “The smooth flavor profile of Starbucks Cold Brew combined with the nuttiness of macadamia flavor, creaminess of white chocolate flavored sauce in the cold foam and salty cookie crumbs delivers the perfect balance of sweet and savory that customers love and offers a moment of summer fun with every sip.”
Also available for a limited time is the new Bumblebee Cake Pop. It combines vanilla cake mixed with buttercream, dipped in yellow chocolaty icing and finished with a fun bumblebee design for the summer.
