Starbucks’ New Summer Drink is a Taste of Nostalgia

Summer is back at Starbucks.  The popular coffee chain announced its new summer menu items on Tuesday (May 10th) and they include a Chocolate Cream Cold Brew and Lime-Frosted Coconut Bar.

The Chocolate Cream Cold Brew is inspired by nostalgic summer moments” and features Starbucks® Cold Brew topped with a chocolate cream cold-foam, and sweetened with vanilla syrup.

“When creating this beverage, we wanted to bring our customers a drink that would transport them back to their favorite summer memories with each sip,” said Rosalyn Batingan of Starbucks; beverage development team in a press release. “The classic combination of coffee and notes of chocolate, along with the malt flavor in the chocolate cream cold foam, are reminiscent of a chocolate malted milkshake or that last bit of melted chocolate ice cream on a warm summer day to recreate the sweet, creamy flavor of summers past.”

A review on compares the new menu item to the milk from a bowl of Cocoa Puffs and the remnants of a dripping Fudgsicle. YUM!

Meanwhile, the new Lime-Frosted Coconut Bar combines chewy coconut, oatmeal and mini white chocolate chips, topped with lime frosting, a drizzle of white icing and a sprinkle of coconut shavings.
