Is there anything a Starbucks lover gets more excited about than the store’s special-edition holiday drinks? Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the popular coffee spot has unveiled an entire menu full of new treat options: from sugary baked goods to decadent chocolate-infused beverages. To see what’s on the mouthwatering new Starbucks Valentine’s Day menu for 2018, read on!
Starbucks Valentine’s Day Cherry Mocha Drink
First up, there’s the new Cherry Mocha drink, a blend that mixes chocolate and fruit with sugary sweetness.
“Inspired by chocolate covered cherries, the new Cherry Mocha starts with hot espresso poured over a slightly sweet mocha sauce and candied cherry syrup,” Starbucks shared about this drink. “Steamed milk and whipped cream topped with sugar and cocoa Valentine’s sprinkles finish the beverage. Enjoy hot, iced or blended from February 7-14 at participating Starbucks stores in the U.S. and Canada.”
New Starbucks Cake Pops and Cookies
Is there anything more festive than a cake pop, or more spirit-lifting than a sparkly cookie? Then you’ve got to see the special Starbucks Valentine’s Day editions!
The Confetti Hearts Cake Pop is composed of “rich chocolate cake, coated with milk chocolatey icing and sprinkles of heart candies,” according to the brand. Meanwhile, the Heart Sugar Cookie is a delightful baked treat “topped with a white or pink chocolatey coating and colorful sprinkles.” Both of these sugary treats are now available in Starbucks stores nationwide.
Starbucks Molten Chocolate Ready-to-Drink Iced Latte
If you’re celebrating Valentine’s Day at home this year – or you want to keep the festivities going beyond February 14 – then we suggest you test out the new Molten Chocolate Ready-to-Drink Iced Latte. This blend is crafted from bold espresso and creamy milk, which are combined with deep layers of rich chocolate flavor to give you a luxurious treat.
If you love brewing your own Starbucks at home – via your regular coffee maker or Keurig machine – there’s a V-Day special for you as well. Caffè Verona is crafted with roasty, dark cocoa flavors, and was intended to be paired with luscious chocolate desserts. This blend was “named after Verona, Italy which was the setting for Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet,” Starbucks shared. “Sip this coffee of one true love with your sweetheart to start Valentine’s Day.”
You can pick up this rich and romantic fan-favorite blend at grocery stores near you.
