News: Starbucks Testing New Cranberry White Chocolate Mocha

Starbucks is testing the Cranberry White Chocolate Mocha as a potential future holiday flavor for the U.S. by offering it at select locations in Portland, San Jose, and Houston.

The drink features espresso, steamed milk, and white chocolate-flavored sauce, topped with whipped cream, tart cranberry drizzle, and crystallized cranberry sugar.

Starbucks offered the Cranberry White Chocolate Mocha last year in select stores in France, Germany, Mexico, China, and Japan. It looks like only Mexico and China have it on the menu this year though.

If customer feedback is good, maybe we'll see the Cranberry White Chocolate Mocha next year!

  1. They're offering this drink in Singapore as well (just like the year before). I tried the frappuccino version last year (it was pretty good) - shall try the mocha soon!

  2. Portland...OR? This is the first time I've seen a test market anywhere even close to where I live so it'll be cool if I can find one of those "select stores"...

  4. They sell it in Thailand as well! By the way ... can you post the nutrition facts for the frappuccino version? I can only find the values for hot and iced. Thanks! :)

  5. They don't list it for test items here in the U.S. It should be close to the White Chocolate Mocha though: http://www.starbucks.com/menu/drinks/frappuccino-blended-beverages/white-chocolate-mocha-frappuccino-blended-coffee

  6. I wish I could try this. The tart cranberry drizzle sounds like it'd go nicely with the white chocolate and pare down the sweetness, too.
