Starbucks Just Revealed Its Summer Menu, and We’re Seeing a Brand-New Drink

It's summer at Starbucks! Here's a look at the all-new Chocolate Cream Cold Brew.

It’s Starbucks summer menu season! Not long after Dunkin’ announced its summer treats and Dairy Queen shared its summer Blizzards, we’re hearing news about a brand-new summer drink at Starbucks. It’s not summer until I have a Chocolate Cream Cold Brew!

What’s on the Starbucks Summer Menu?

First, the all-new Chocolate Cream Cold Brew. I know we all love iced coffee, but cold brew has been taking over lately, and Starbucks’ latest creation seems like one of the best takes I’ve seen. The drink features Starbucks’ signature cold brew topped with chocolate cream cold foam and sweetened with rich vanilla syrup. You can bet I’ll be ordering a grande at least twice a week.

This drink may have been inspired by the Chocolate Mousse Cold Brew from the Starbucks secret menu. If you’re looking for something even more chocolaty, that might be the go-to for you. But the Chocolate Cream Cold Brew is easy to order, and best of all, it’s being added to the permanent lineup. Yep, it’s not just a seasonal thing!

There Will Be New Eats, Too

Of course, it’s not a coffee break without a treat. Starbucks is adding a brand-new Lime-Frosted Coconut Bar to the lineup, which sounds perfect for a grab-and-go snack. If you’re looking for something more filling, the Bacon, Sausage and Egg Wrap is also making its way back to stores. Both these items will join the Chocolate Cream Cold Brew on the permanent menu.

The Unicorn Cake Pop is back for the season too, but that one is still around for a limited time only. If you love this colorful sweet treat, get down to your local ‘bucks while the sun’s out!

Don’t Forget About the Merch!

Of course, it’s not summer without new merch! The lineup features plenty of shiny, gorgeous tumblers, including one with a purple one with a diamond texture and another with a pretty gradient.

However, we’ve got our eye on this adorable cup that looks just like an orange creamsicle. It doesn’t seem to feature in Starbucks’ merch release, but you can get it in-store for just $14.95. If you can’t find it, ask if your local store has the Mango Drip mug in stock.

When Should I Get in Line?

May 10, 2022 is when you’ll see all these new treats in store—which means right now! Don’t be surprised if products sell out quickly—a lot of people are anticipating this release with excitement.

Don’t forget to grab a set of Starbucks color-changing cups for your drinks!
