Starbucks Is Not Bringing Back Its Salted Caramel Mocha for Fall 2021

The Salted Caramel Mocha will be missing from the menu.

Fall is almost here, and that means another new Starbucks menu is about to drop. Unfortunately, it seems to be missing a beloved Starbucks drink—but don’t worry, it’s not the PSL. The Pumpkin Spice Latte is definitely coming back and will be here before you know it.

But while the Starbucks fall menu boasts ton of pumpkin-y goodness, it is missing a fan favorite.

The Salted Caramel Mocha Is Off the Menu

Yep, the sweet and salty concoction that was competing with the PSL won’t be returning to the menu this autumn. While this is a blow for those of us who were looking forward to ordering it again, there is still a way to get your hands on it.

This secret Salted Caramel Mocha recipe lets you recreate the classic drink with syrups available year-round, though unfortunately, you’ll have to skip out on the salted caramel topping. Of course, you can always bring your own salt to sprinkle on—just make sure you use the right type.

Of course, if you’re looking to try something new, there’s a brand-new drink on Starbucks’ fall menu for 2021. We’re not sure if this one will be as good as the Salted Caramel Mocha, but we’re definitely willing to give it a shot!

When Will the Starbucks Fall Menu Be Available?

Salted Caramel Mocha or not, we still can’t wait to get our hands on all of the Starbucks fall goods. Sources tell us Starbucks fall menu items will be available on August 24. This will likely include new merch and hopefully, the return of bottled PSLs to grocery stores.

While you’re waiting, don’t forget to check out these other secret menu drinks at Starbucks.
