Being an American chain, you would expect Starbucks to keep all its best stuff for the United States. But that doesn’t seem to be the case, at least when it comes to holiday drinks.
In a recent blog post, Starbucks showcased its selection of international holiday drinks that you can’t get in the United States. And learning all of the options that Starbucks offers elsewhere made a lot of people jealous.
For example, coffee lovers in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa can enjoy the Caramel Waffle Latte, which is inspired by Dutch stroopwafel cookies.
Starbucks fans in the Asia Pacific region can get their caffeine intake with a delicious-sounding Chestnut Mont Blanc Oatmilk Latte.
But wait, that is just the beginning. In Costa Rica and other parts of Central America and the Caribbean, Starbucks has Red Velvet Latte. This drink comes with a beautiful red color and seems so fitting for Christmas.
Of course, Japan has the most intriguing drink of them all with Strawberry Merry Cream Frappuccino Blended Cream. It is made with “sweet and sour strawberry pulp frozen and topped with merry cream made from mascarpone.”
Starbucks announced some holiday drinks for its U.S. customers as well, but offerings like Iced Gingerbread Oatmilk Chai Latte simply don’t look as good in comparison to these international options.
