We used to have to wait until the end of November to get a taste of the holidays at Starbucks, but not this year.
Starting Thursday, the coffee company will be launching the 2022 holiday menu, bringing back classics such as peppermint mocha, caramel brulee latte, toasted white chocolate mocha and chestnut praline latte.
There is also a new treat — the chocolate pistachio swirl roll — CNN reported. The pastry has a “creamy chocolate filling with notes of cinnamon and coffee ... swirled into buttery brioche-inspired dough with mint chocolate chips and topped with chopped pistachios,” USA Today reported.
The Christmas and holiday blends of coffee are also back to help celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Starbucks holiday cups.
There will be four designs this year, which will also be released this week: a cup with a gift-wrapped graphic, a mint green cup with starbursts and diamond shapes, a cup decorated with ornaments and trees, and a red cup with white trees, USA Today reported.
Meanwhile, Dunkin’ has introduced its holiday lineup.
The company is rolling out a new cookie butter cold-brew drink that is topped with cookie butter foam and cookie butter crumbles. If that isn’t enough cookie butter there is also an accompanying doughnut that has cookie butter buttercream filling and maple-flavored icing and cookie crumbles.
The drink will share the menu with Dunkin’s peppermint mocha latte, toasted white chocolate latte, and the company’s holiday blend coffee.
Dunkin’ has developed a pancake wrap that is stuffed with egg, cheese and either sausage or bacon. It is also bringing back its cranberry orange muffin.
