Starbucks has officially started serving up a chocolate-flavored coffee. The brew, called the Chocolate Cream Cold Brew, comes with a light chocolate cream cold foam and a sweet vanilla syrup.
“When creating this beverage, we wanted to bring our customers a drink that would transport them back to their favorite summer memories with each sip,” Rosalyn Batingan of Starbucks’ beverage development team said in a statement. “The classic combination of coffee and notes of chocolate, along with the malt flavor in the chocolate cream cold foam, are reminiscent of a chocolate malted milkshake or that last bit of melted chocolate ice cream on a warm summer day to recreate the sweet, creamy flavor of summers past.”
Accoring to interim CEO Howard Schultz, cold beverages make up a whopping 80% of Starbucks’ sales. Additional new items on the Starbucks menu include a unicorn cake pop, lime-frosted coconut bar and a bacon, sausage and egg wrap.
