Starbucks’ Holiday Menu Is BACK for 2020—Here’s What to Order

The Starbucks holiday menu is back in action—but that's not all.

Get ready to be bombarded by the best flavors of the season, because Christmas is coming a little early this year. Everyone’s already jumping on the bandwagon—or, er, sleigh—and churning out the very sweetest holiday exclusives. Even Hallmark has already kicked off its seasonal lineup of binge-worthy Christmas movies, and Netflix is giving us even more festive options to get us in the spirit.

Of course, it’s not really Christmas without one thing—Starbucks’ holiday menu! Starbucks lovers rejoice, because your favorite lattes, pastries and perks are back.

What’s on the Menu?

All of your favorites are back save for one—the Gingerbread Latte, which disappeared from U.S. menus last year. Don’t worry, though, you can substitute with any of these sweet and seasonal bevvies. With the purchase of a Grande-size of any of these drinks, you’re eligible for a free holiday cup:

  • Caramel Brulee Latte
  • Chestnut Praline Latte
  • Eggnog Latte
  • Hot Chocolate
  • Peppermint Hot Chocolate
  • Peppermint Mocha
  • Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew/Pumpkin Cream Nitro Cold Brew
  • Salted Caramel Cream Cold Brew
  • Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate
  • Toasted White Chocolate Mocha

The coveted PSL and Salted Caramel Mocha are still around, too, if you’re still craving the flavors of fall. Starbucks is also bringing back the Cranberry Orange Scone, Cranberry Bliss Bar, Sugar Plum Danish, Snowman Cookie and Snowman Cake Pop.

What’s Christmas Without Starbucks?

Every year, we’re jittering with anticipation for the unveiling of Starbucks’ holiday menu. Most importantly, we’re keeping a lookout for the reusable cups we get with holiday lattes every year. The cups already rolled out (and sold out) for the year, but that doesn’t mean there’s not plenty of great Starbucks holiday merch worth putting under the tree this year.

In case you missed out on the reusable cups, keep an eye out for Starbucks’ new color-changing hot cups. These gorgeous cups turn from a festive dark green to a vibrant red with a little bit of heat, which makes your winter latte even jollier.

The best part? These are only $3 a pop, so keep an eye out for these cups at your location and stock up as soon as you see them. (Pro tip: you’re more likely to find these at less-trafficked Starbucks locations, like those in Targets or shopping malls. But be quick—some of those stores might be disappearing soon. )

But that’s not all—Starbucks is also selling a six-pack of color-changing cups covered in candy canes that melt into beautiful burgundy, mint, navy and pink hues. Each cup can hold about 16-ounces (or a Grande) of whatever hot drink you like, and you can get all six of them for just $19 this holiday season. Talk about a great stocking stuffer!

We don’t know what we’re craving more—cute cups or seasonal lattes—but we do know we’ll be making a Starbucks run every day between now and January.
