Starbucks welcomes back their fan-favorite Peppermint Mocha as part of returning seasonal flavors in celebration of the 2020 holiday season.
Peppermint Mocha features the brand’s signature espresso, steamed milk, sweet mocha sauce and peppermint-flavored syrup, and topped off with whipped cream and dark chocolate curls. The holiday classic is available hot, iced, or as a Frappuccino blended beverage
In addition to Peppermint Mocha, Starbucks is bringing back Toasted White Chocolate Mocha, Caramel Brulée Latte, Chestnut Praline Latte, and Eggnog Latte, all available hot, iced and Frappuccino blended beverages.
As part of this year’s celebration, Starbucks is introducing four new holiday cup designs: Ribbon, Dot, Sparkle and Brand Wrap.
Starbucks describes the new designs as follows:
- Ribbon: This design brings forward all the joyful elements of the holiday season in ribbons of brand greens and a jolly red like a cozy holiday sweater. Look closely and you’ll see a familiar crown, tail, and scales. The design is repeated on this year’s collectible Starbucks red holiday cup.
- Dot: Stripes swirl around a field of Starbucks house green punctuated by playful polka dots, sharing the sentiment to “carry the merry.”
- Sparkle: This red cup has vintage vibes, with cutout shapes in green like glittering holiday ornaments. The motif is repeated in a snowy white on Starbucks cold beverage cups.
- Brand Wrap: This modern, scaled-up version of the ribbon design features bold bands of holiday color and the Starbucks wordmark, designer street style.
For fans looking to enjoy seasonal beverages at home, you can find Christmas Blend whole bean coffee at your local Starbucks. Meanwhile, Starbucks seasonal flavors like Holiday Blend and Peppermint Mocha in Roast and Ground, K-Cup pods and ready-to-drink formats can be found at retailers nationwide where groceries are sold.
