According to CNN Business cold beverages, like iced coffees and Frappuccinos, have been extremely successful for Starbucks and account for almost 80% of the major coffee chains business. The newest drink was created to support the growing demand for iced coffee. The added twist of the chocolate foam and sweet vanilla syrup give the new Starbucks chocolate cream cold brew a malt flavoring to mimic the taste of a milkshake.  With over 150 million Americans or 50% of the U.S. population being coffee drinkers, having another menu item to support the cold beverage industry is perfectly timed with the summer drink menu. Although, the new Starbucks chocolate cream cold brew is specifically on the summer drink menu, it will be avaliable to Starbucks customers all year. 

Rosalyn Batingan, the head of Starbucks beverage development teams stated “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,” said Rosalyn Batingan of Starbucks’ beverage development team.

Those who can’t wait to try the new Starbucks Chocolate Cream Cold Brew can do so now. A grande or large size will be anywhere from $5.25 to $5.45 depending on the location. Finding a Starbucks near you should not be hard to do with the 33,833 stores in over 80 countries being the number one coffee chain in the United States. They are easily spotted as well with the full line in the drive through.

Coffee is a major morning staple and is not just for the caffeine kick. Starbucks customers can order caffeine free coffee, hot coffee, cold coffee, iced teas, blended beaverages and many other menu items, including a long list of food items. Starbucks is not about just providing epic coffee menu items like the new Chocolate Cream Cold Brew but an all around experience. Most Starbucks locations offer free wifi and lounge seating areas. Starbucks are easily spotted with the bright green logo.

Since the homebase of Starbucks is located in Seattle, Washington the owners felt a close tie to water. The bright green logo is actually that of a super mermaid. The logo was created after the owners were reading through some old marine books and came across images of mysterious nautical creatures called sirens. That amounts to even more of a reason to check out the super mermaid logo, and the latest summer drink menu item – the Chocolate Cream Cold Brew.
