Summer is calling at Starbucks with New Chocolate Java Mint Frappuccino® and New White Chocolate Macadamia Cream Cold Brew


Summer at Starbucks is here! Starting Tuesday, May 9, customers can sip into the season with new summer-inspired beverages with fun-filled flavours including the Chocolate Java Mint Frappuccino® blended beverage and White Chocolate Macadamia Cream Cold Brew. Also new in stores is Starbucks® Green Apron Blend, a light and lively whole bean coffee co-created with over 24,000 Starbucks partners (employees), and more. 

Sweet summer enjoy-mint:
New Starbucks Chocolate Java Mint Frappuccino® Blended Beverage 

 The Starbucks Chocolate Java Mint Frappuccino® Blended Beverage, features Starbucks Frappuccino roast coffee, sweet chocolate, and refreshing mint flavours with rich Frappuccino chips blended into a cooler-than-cool treat. The beverage is finished with a layer of mocha sauce, whipped cream, and a chocolate cookie mint sprinkle topping. 

“With the Chocolate Java Mint Frappuccino®, we wanted to take a new approach to the classic combination of mint and chocolate to create a blended coffee beverage that elicits nostalgia for one of our favorite summer treats,” said Maureen Matthews of Starbucks beverage development team. “The new white chocolate mint sauce is subtle and creamy, and when paired with the crunch of Frappuccino® chips and a swirl of rich mocha, is reminiscent of mint chocolate chip ice cream poolside on a warm summer day.” 

Available at participating stores in Canada for a limited time, while supplies last. 

Cold meets creamy:
New Starbucks White Chocolate Macadamia Cream Cold Brew 

Starbucks White Chocolate Macadamia Cream Cold Brew combines the balanced and smooth taste of Starbucks® Cold Brew with a summer twist. This delightfully dreamy beverage is sweetened with macadamia syrup, topped with a white chocolate macadamia cream cold foam, and finished with toasted cookie crumbles.  

“When creating Starbucks® White Chocolate Macadamia Cream Cold Brew, we were inspired by memories of fresh macadamia nuts on tropical vacations and the distinct flavor of white chocolate macadamia nut cookies,” said Matt Thornton of Starbucks beverage development team. “The smooth flavor profile of Starbucks® Cold Brew combined with the nuttiness of macadamia flavor, creaminess of white chocolate flavored sauce in the cold foam, and salty cookie crumbs delivers the perfect balance of sweet and savory that customers love and offers a moment of summer fun with every sip.” 

Available at participating stores in Canada for a limited time, while supplies last. 

New Starbucks® Green Apron Blend™

New Starbucks® Green Apron Blend™  is a light and lively Starbucks® Blonde roast coffee, with hints of Honeybell orange and graham crackers, to emulate the brightness and energy of Starbucks partners and stores. Nearly 24,000 idea submissions from store partners shaped its flavour and roast profiles, as well as which regions the coffee was sourced from, and the look and feel of the packaging. 

As part of Starbucks continued commitment to its partners, the company is designating $5 per bag and, for a limited time, $0.10 per brewed cup of Green Apron Blend™ sold to the Caring Unites Partners (CUP) Fund, a Starbucks program that provides grants to eligible Starbucks employees in times of need.    

Green Apron Blend™ is available at participating stores in Canada as a 1 lb. bag of whole bean coffee year-round, and starting May 9, will be available as a daily brewed hot coffee for a limited time.
