Starbucks Just Revealed Its Summer Menu, and We’re Seeing Three Brand-New Drinks

It's summer at Starbucks! Here's a look at the all-new Chocolate Cream Cold Brew and the latest Refreshers.

It’s Starbucks summer menu season! Not long after Dunkin’ announced its summer treats and Dairy Queen shared its summer Blizzards, we’re hearing news about brand-new summer drinks at Starbucks. It’s not summer until I have a Chocolate Cream Cold Brew in hand!

What’s on the Starbucks Summer Menu?

First, the all-new Chocolate Cream Cold Brew. I know we all love iced coffee, but cold brew has been taking over lately, and Starbucks’ latest creation seems like one of the best takes I’ve seen. The drink features Starbucks’ signature cold brew topped with chocolate cream cold foam and sweetened with rich vanilla syrup. You can bet I’ll be ordering a grande at least twice a week. This drink may have been inspired by the Chocolate Mousse Cold Brew from the Starbucks secret menu, which you can pick if you’re looking for something more chocolaty.

Prefer something a little fruitier? The ‘bucks is adding not just one but two new Refreshers to the menu—the Pineapple Passionfruit Refresher and the Paradise Drink Refresher. The first one features sweet and sour pineapple and passionfruit flavors, with chunks of real pineapple. Add coconut milk and you’ll have the Paradise Drink Refresher in hand. Both drinks will be part of the permanent menu!

There Will Be New Eats, Too

Of course, it’s not a coffee break without a treat. Starbucks is adding a brand-new Lime-Frosted Coconut Bar to the lineup, which sounds perfect for a grab-and-go snack. If you’re looking for something more filling, the Bacon, Sausage and Egg Wrap is also making its way back to stores, along with a new Chicken, Maple Butter & Egg Sandwich. All of these items will join the Chocolate Cream Cold Brew on the permanent menu.

The Unicorn Cake Pop is back for the season too, but that one is still around for a limited time only. It’s joined by the Cookies & Cream Cake Pop, which will be a permanent addition to the sweet lineup!

Don’t Forget About the Merch!

Of course, it’s not summer without new merch! The lineup features plenty of shiny, gorgeous tumblers, including one with a purple one with a diamond texture and another with a pretty gradient.

However, we’ve got our eye on this adorable cup that looks just like an orange creamsicle. It doesn’t seem to feature in Starbucks’ merch release, but you can get it in-store for just $14.95. If you can’t find it, ask if your local store has the Mango Drip mug in stock.

When Should I Get in Line?

While some of these items were released earlier, the new Refreshers, the new Sandwich and the Cookies & Cream Cake Pop will be out on June 21, 2022—which means right now! Don’t be surprised if products sell out quickly—a lot of people are anticipating this release with excitement.
