Must List

We tried the new summer Starbucks menu so you don't have to

There's no doubt that the heat this summer has been on a new level—and we all could use a chill drink to cool down! On June 21, Starbucks released a collection of bevs and snacks to love all summer long. Tbh, the best part of vacay is switching up your routine by trying new things...and the perfect Starbucks order is the cherry on top! Want to know what the summer drinks taste like without the trip to your local spot? You're in luck.

Pineapple Passionfruit Refresher

Three words: Freeze. Dried. Pineapples. This drink is the *star* of the new menu. The refresher is the perfect shade of sunshine to embody the sunshine spirit. The passionfruit refresher can be made with either lemonade or water to start. In my opinion, the lemonade option is more refreshing—as it has a more citrusy and fruity taste. However, if you love a tart drink, a water base is the way to go!

Paradise Drink


a very good summer drink if you like tripical flavors! Approved by Brooke & will definitely be purchasing again 🍍🥥💛

This is a spin-off of the refresher. It's made the same way, but this drink uses coconut milk to give it a piña colada flavor. (DW, you still get the pineapple pieces on the inside!) For the days when you're in desperate need of a sweet drink, this hits just right. 

Chocolate Cream Cold Brew

Even though it's summertime, we all still need our comfort iced coffee. This cold brew is something special: Not only does it feature the typical Starbucks cold brew mix, but it is also topped with a sweet chocolate cream cold foam and vanilla syrup for something sweet. 

Cookies & Cream Cake Pop

Calling all Oreo lovers! This cake pop tastes like a replica of the inside of an Oreo. The icing on the outside is the perfect dupe when craving some Oreo cream. 

Chicken, Maple Butter and Egg Sandwich

You're on the way to hang out with friends but didn't grab anything to eat before you left—yes, a quick bite is v. necessary. This new savory sammie comes on a toasted oat biscuit roll. The sandwich has fried chicken, fluffy eggs and a spread of maple butter to add a sense of sweetness.
