Starbucks Adds 3 New Permanent Items to Its Menu This Summer
Starbucks' menu will look a little different this summer, with the addition of three new permanent menu items and four other new items available for a limited time.
The new items added to the permanent menu should look pretty familiar to you — they're twists on customer favorites. So, if you're a fan of strawberries and crème Frappuccinos or sous vide egg bites, then listen up.
First up, the Serious Strawberry Frappuccino: This takes strawberries and crème Frappuccino and adds strawberries upon strawberries upon strawberries. Then, once it's blended with some ice and milk, it's finished off with yet another layer of strawberry purée and whipped cream.
The Serious Strawberry Frappuccino addition follows the release of new ultra caramel and triple mocha Frappuccinos, which were added to Starbucks' permanent menu in early May.
Enough talk of Frapps. Let's get into the new food items: the chicken chorizo and tortilla sous vide egg bites and the new kitchen sink cookie.
The chicken chorizo and tortilla sous vide egg bites are made with antibiotic-free chicken chorizo, chipotle salsa and corn tortilla chips. The kitchen sink cookie, on the other hand, has pecans, pretzels, marshmallows and chocolate chunks.
Now, ready for the new limited-time-only summer bakery items?
If you were hoping Starbucks would release a new cake pop this summer, then you're in luck: Please welcome (for a limited time) the frosted doughnut cake pop. With vanilla cake, simple syrup and buttercream icing and dipped in a dark-chocolate coating and decorated with sprinkles, this pop comes available in pink or white frosting.
Or you can pick up the new confetti sugar cookie, decorated with sprinkles and half-dipped in a white-chocolate frosting.
Last but not least, Starbucks has also added the summer berry swirl croissant, filled with raspberry, blackberry and strawberries.
That's not all, y'all. Starbucks is also releasing the first of a four-part, limited-edition packaged coffee series. The series will celebrate and reinterpret Starbucks coffee heritage, according to a press release, and will be told by a different artist. The first chapter is called "Origin" and will feature Los Angeles artist Tristan Eaton and his interpretation of Sumatra coffee's origin. This series will continue through 2018.
Have an idea of what you want to try first? All these new Starbucks items are available starting Tuesday, June 5 in the U.S. and Canada.
