News: Starbucks - New Discoveries Iced Cafe Favorites

Starbucks Discoveries Iced Cafe Favorites (long name, let's just go with "Starbucks Discoveries") is Starbucks' new carton-based coffee and milk drink sold in grocery stores for at-home consumption. According to a company representative, the drinks are made of Starbucks espresso from 100% arabica beans, 2% milk, and natural flavors.

They're currently available in a limited number of grocery stores, but will be more broadly distributed by August. Unlike Starbucks' current grocery line up of bottled and canned coffee, Starbucks Discoveries are not shelf-stable and require refrigeration.

Starbucks Discoveries contain 120 calories per serving (8 fl. oz) and are available in delicious flavors that mirror popular handcrafted Starbucks drinks: Caramel Macchiato, Caffe Mocha, and Vanilla Latte (i.e. caramel, chocolate, and vanilla).

The suggested retail price per 50.7-fl. oz carton is $4.99 (may vary).

As to where Starbucks Discoveries fall in the pantheon of Starbucks grocery store drinks, they sit somewhere between the creamier, sweeter bottled Frappuccinos and the less milky bottled Iced Coffee.

Interestingly, Starbucks Discoveries is also the name of a single-serve milk and coffee drink abroad. Like the US version, they require refrigeration, but are served in cartons that resemble standard Starbucks cups and come with a straw.

  1. I'm tempted to try these, but paying way more for less content compared to International Delight's iced coffee is a pretty hard sell. I'll probably try them out once, but unless they taste significantly better I doubt I'll get them regularly over ID's version.
