Are you ready for summer? Starbucks is! And what better way to get ready for summer than with two new drinks inspired by nostalgia.
On May 9, Starbucks unveiled their summer menu at all locations, which includes their two newest drinks, as well as other items to help inspire us this summer. So what are we going to be sipping on while we eat our bumblebee cake pops?
According to Popsugar, Starbucks is bringing all of the nostalgic vibes with a White Chocolate Macadamia Cream Cold Brew and of course a Chocolate Java Mint Frappuccino, because you can’t have summer without a Frappuccino. So what makes these two flavors nostalgic?
Starbucks releases their summer menu which includes two drinks perfect for channeling those nostalgic vibes
For the Chocolate Java Mint Frappuccino, we are looking at a drink that makes us think of hot days by the pool with an ice cream cone in hand thanks to the chocolate and mint flavors coming together. And with the White Chocolate Macadamia Cream Cold Brew it’s channeling beach time cookies (because at least when I was a kid we would bring snacks to the beach and cookies always made the cut).
According to Starbucks themselves, the Cold Brew is a perfect blend of both the sweet and salty with nutty vibes. And that makes perfect sense since the drink brings together white chocolate and macadamia, two things we love in a crisp cookie that’s been topped with salt crystals. (Famous Amos sells a cookie this flavor that we are obsessed with too!)
Of course, the new drinks aren’t the only way that Starbucks is summer ready! That’s because there are also new tumblers, mugs, and other merchandise to snag for those of us who collect all things the ‘Bucks! We are talking about monochrome designs in bold colors, a new studded tumbler that is iridescent, and even a glass tumbler that gives us those ombré vibes in hot pink tones and we are living for them all! (As anyone who knows me knows, I am a tumbler collector and I already started to hunt down the new goodies with decent results!)
So what do you think of how Starbucks is getting summer ready? How do you feel about the new drinks? And do you collect the tumblers and other merch?
