All the New Starbucks Arrivals for 2022?
The Starbucks menu has been enhanced by the addition of several new drinks in 2022. They are not all available at all locations. The new list is made up of Honey and Hazelnut Oat Latte, Pistachio Latte, Strawberry and Vanilla Oat Latte, Dark Cocoa and Orange Oat Latte, Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew, Pistachio Frappuccino, and Iced Brown Sugar Oat milk Shaken Espresso.
If you adore the taste of pistachio underlaid with Starbucks’ penchant for sweet decadence, the brown butter, steamed milk, and espresso of Pistachio Latte will live up to your expectations. You have two options as it comes in hot and iced versions. It will carry you from spring into autumn and keep you coming back for more.
The Honey and Hazelnut Oat Latte combines dreamy hazelnut with floral honey tastes covered in a bit of froth. This caffeinated oat latte beverage contains zero dairy and has the fully rounded taste of hazelnut butter.
The Dark Cocoa and Orange Oat Latte uplifts the oat latte component with a refreshing citrus flavor. The tangy orange tones mingle with cacao covered in froth and sprinkled with cocoa butter. Revel in this unusual combination with its slightly orange hue.
If you have a sweet tooth, you will love the Strawberry and Vanilla Oat Latte. It is also devoid of dairy and makes for a soothing drink. Make it your new lunchtime drink all year round.
This mouthful, the Iced Brown Sugar Oat milk Shaken Espresso, is indeed a mouthful you will want to repeat. Despite being low in calories (a mere 160 calories), it is big on taste. The combination of cinnamon, steamed oats, water, espresso, and brown sugar syrup is truly delectable.
The Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew is a sugary delight. Once you taste it, you will be surprised that it only contains 110 calories. Its high note is the luxurious vanilla sweet cream. It is pure velvet on your tongue.
Last but by no means least, is the Pistachio Frappuccino. Another velvety treat containing pistachio with ice, milk, and coffee, is smothered in a brown butter coating and sumptuous whipped cream.
What is New on Starbucks’ Coffee Menu for 2022?
To find out what's new at Starbucks 2022, keep reading as there is more to indulge in on Starbucks spring menu 2022. There are plenty more Starbucks spring 2022 items to be enjoyed in this heady season of new blooms and idyllic weather. And what could please coffee lovers more than these new limited edition packaged coffees?
The first new coffee to look forward to is the Starbucks Honey & Madagascar Vanilla Flavored Coffee. This admirable coffee drink is richly flavored with vanilla and ultra-sweet honey to tantalize, tease, and satisfy the need for caffeine. Vanilla is easily everyone’s favorite taste, but where does it come from?
The first thing to note is that Madagascar vanilla beans are not beans at all. They come from the orchid species, vanilla planifolia, and are the fruit or seed pod of the orchid flower. Although the vanilla orchid originated in Mexico, this specific species is cultivated in Madagascar as well. Madagascar vanilla beans are higher in vanillin, the core flavor of vanilla, thus having more of that unique sweetness, warmth, and creaminess. Additionally, Madagascar vanillin is only one of over 250 compounds that are only found in genuine vanilla beans. These compounds add fruity, spicy, and floral notes. Only the best for Starbucks Honey & Madagascar Vanilla Flavored Coffee.
Another new coffee is Starbucks Spring Day Blend. This coffee offers smoothness and balance which is complemented with dried fruit and dusted cocoa. Pick up the Starbucks Spring Day Blend and the Starbucks Honey & Madagascar Vanilla Flavored Coffee when you do your grocery shopping. However, they are available for a limited time only at grocery stores.
Head on over to Starbucks Reserves stores to take advantage of the return of Starbucks Reserve Papua New Guinea Moanti. This delightful whole bean, syrupy-sweet coffee has a keynote of sandalwood with a hint of cocoa and a delicate background of thyme. You will also find the new Starbucks Reserve Brazil Fazenda Catanduva there. Brazil Fazenda Catanduva coffee is smooth and sweet (what more could you ask for) and is rounded off with hazelnut, graham cracker, and chocolate fudge.
An old favorite, Starbucks Anniversary Blend is back this spring along with Starbucks Odyssey Blend, which is available from April 19th.
Lastly, the new Cold & Crafted on Tap is ready to drink. It is available in two versions - Unsweetened Black and Black Coffee with a small amount of Milk. Also arriving at your local grocery store this month are the Starbucks Tripleshot Zero Sugar Milk Chocolate and Starbucks Nitro Cold Brew Splash of Sweet Cream.

Starbucks Spring Day Blend K cups are a Must-Try for 2022
Starbucks Spring Day Blend K cups have received some amazing reviews. So, if you haven’t tried it yet, you are missing out.
Coffee from Africa and Latin America is used to make Starbucks Spring Day Blend. To this is added the rich ingredients of cocoa and dried fruits. It can be enjoyed with or without cream and sugar so you can adapt it to the perfect cup of coffee for your personal preference. Others have enjoyed it with non-dairy milk.
The main difference between coffee beans from Africa and South America is their unique flavors. While African coffee beans convey the tastes of citrus, flowers, and fruit, South American coffee beans are characterized by tones of nuts, chocolate, and caramel. The differences in taste are very noticeable. Certain factors determine how coffee beans taste, such as the climate where they are grown, the amount of rainfall, the production methods used, and how they are roasted.
Starbucks Spring Day Blend combines these two widely varied tastes into a blend that is smooth and full-bodied. The addition of cocoa and dried fruits is subtle and does not overpower the medium roast of the coffee beans. The fresh smell when you open the package is pleasing and it has an appealing color when brewed. Starbucks Spring Day Blend is made for the enjoyment of the senses.
Reviewers have also complimented the size of the K cups. The quality of the K cup material is good, and it does not melt after brewing.
As this is a limited edition, don’t waste time getting yourself a package of Starbucks Spring Day Blend. Hopefully, we won’t see the last of it.
Starbucks Spring Cups and Tumblers for 2022
Starbucks has come out with a new range of cups and tumblers as part of their 2022 Spring celebrations.
As with its existing cups and tumblers, you can order Starbucks cups online via the Starbucks mobile app before venturing to the store to pick them up.
There is a Green Iridescent Cold Cup and a Speckled Glass Cold Cup made from glass, which many of us try to avoid after numerous accidents and cleaning up the shards. However, this lovely tumbler is a must-have.
The Green Blue Gridded Tumbler has the same colors to match Hard Mountain Dew, while the Purple Ombré Flower Stainless Steel Tumbler is eye-catching. One of the new cups is the mint green Ceramic Mug Floral Tail. Reusable Hot Cups With Color-Changing Lids can alter their colors when heated. You will have to wait for the Cactus Flower Ceramic Mug as it only comes out in time for Mother’s Day. The striking Plastic Green Jeweled Cold Cup also hides the liquid inside.
Other items are the Speckled Ceramic Double Wall Tumbler, Plastic Cold Cup Floral Soft Touch, the Stainless Steel Copper Tumbler, and the Floral Plastic Cold Cup.
Something BRAND NEW - Starbucks Energy Drinks for 2022
The best spring Starbucks drinks have to include the new Starbucks BAYA Energy drink. It is available in Raspberry Lime and Mango Guava flavors.
This is the first time that Starbucks has created energy drinks. Starbucks stores have been stocking Starbucks BAYA Energy Drink since the beginning of the year. If this is the first time you are hearing of Starbucks energy drinks be sure to look out for these recent additions to the brand.
Starbucks BAYA Energy drink has been concocted with the caffeine found in coffee fruit. You may not have known that the coffee fruit contains caffeine, but it does. The caffeine yield is much less than the caffeine from coffee beans – between five milligrams and twenty milligrams of caffeine per serving, compared to the 96 milligrams found in regular coffee in an average 240ml cup.
Starbucks New Cold Drinks
Along with a stunning array of existing cold drinks, comes the Starbucks new drink 2022. The Starbucks new drink options include the Starbucks new pineapple drink and Starbucks coconut drinks 2022. With Starbucks seasonal drinks spring menu, there is something for everybody.
The Starbucks pineapple drink 2022 is called Iced Pineapple Matcha Drink and only contains 170 calories, 27 grams of sugar, and five grams of fat, which is easy to fit into any diet. It comes in tall (12 fl oz), grande (16 fl oz), and venti sizes (24 fl oz). It is made with matcha green tea in coconut milk and ice and flavored with pineapple and ginger. This is one very uplifting all-new beverage.
The Caramel Coconut Crème Pie Frappuccino also comes in tall, grande, and venti sizes. It contains 420 calories, with 53 grams of sugar and 21 grams of fat. Coconut milk is blended with white chocolate mocha sauce, honey malt, caramel and ice, then poured on top of dark caramel and whipped cream. The drink is finished with whipped cream and graham cracker crumbles.
The new Iced Toasted Vanilla Oat milk Shaken Espresso for Starbucks Spring 2022 comes with a surprise. It is purely vegan! According to Starbucks, the Iced Toasted Vanilla Oat milk Shaken Espresso is a “blonde espresso combined with notes of caramelized vanilla shaken together and topped with oat milk for an energizing treat to boost your day.” One taster noted that “there was a subtle vanilla sweetness to this drink but the espresso and full-bodied creaminess of the oat milk were predominate.”
For vegans who want to know what the Iced Toasted Vanilla Oat milk Shaken Espresso contains, here are the ingredients: Ice, Oat milk (Water, Oats), Toasted Vanilla Flavored Syrup Brewed Espresso, Canola Oil, Dipotassium Calcium Carbonate, Phosphate, Tricalcium Phosphate, Dicalcium Phosphate, Sea Salt, Riboflavin, Vitamin D 2, Vitamin A, Vitamin B 12.
Starbucks Refreshers from their Range of Cold Drinks
Having whetted your appetite with the newly arrived vegan drink, Iced Toasted Vanilla Oat milk Shaken Espresso, let’s take a look at the old favorite cold drinks.
Starbucks Refreshers include Kiwi Starfruit Starbucks Refreshers Beverage, the Star Drink, Kiwi Starfruit Lemonade Starbucks Refreshers Beverage, Mango Dragon fruit Lemonade Starbucks Refreshers Beverage, Strawberry Acai Lemonade Starbucks Refreshers Beverage, the gloriously pink Dragon drink, Mango Dragon fruit Starbucks Refreshers Beverage, and the Strawberry Acai Starbucks Refreshers Beverage.
I would like to take a closer look at the Strawberry Acai Starbucks Refreshers Beverage.
The Strawberry Acai Lemonade Starbucks Refreshers Beverage is an interesting mix of Ice, Strawberry Acai Base [Sugar, Water, Natural Flavors], White Grape Juice Concentrate, Natural Green Coffee Flavor, Fruit And Vegetable Juice, Citric Acid, Freeze-dried Strawberries, and Rebaudioside-a].
In case you were wondering, Rebaudioside A (Reb-A) is a highly purified form of stevia. It was approved by the FDA for use in 2008.
This strawberry acai has a dual benefit, it cools you down and, at the same time, keeps you active with the added caffeine it contains. What’s not to love about strawberries, for the taste, but also the great health benefits. Strawberries increase the healthy cholesterol in veins and arteries, lower blood pressure, and protect the heart. High in antioxidants, they contain no cholesterol or fats and protect from cancer. All in all, the Strawberry Acai Starbucks Refreshers Beverage weighs in at 90 calories, which are mainly from carbohydrates.
This pretty, plus healthy, drink has dehydrated strawberries floating in it, which are nice to look at it while sipping the juice and trying to make it last.
Starbucks Range of Cold Drinks
Starbucks Juice Range consists of Evolution Fresh Orange, Evolution Fresh Organic Vital Berry, Starbucks Baya Energy Mango Guava, Evolution Fresh Organic Defense Up, Evolution Fresh Mighty Watermelon, Evolution Fresh Organic Super Fruit Greens, Starbucks Baya Energy Raspberry Lime, Tree Top Apple Juice Box, Lemonade, and Blended Strawberry Lemonade.
