New Starbucks Menu Items Are Here!
UPDATE: Good news, everyone. An earlier version of this story incorrectly reported that you only have two weeks to try Granitas — but they’re sticking around! We don’t know exactly how long we can expect to see them (the Starbucks website just says to try them “before they’re gone”), but we know we’re amped to get the chance to drink them for as long as we can. Original story continues below:
Just days after the pink drink craze hit Starbucks nationwide, Starbucks is rolling out new drinks and desserts for summer 2016. Being an unabashedly basic person who goes to Starbucks almost every day, I’m unduly excited. The only downside? They’re not here forever, so you better get ’em quick!
Headlining Starbucks’s new post-3pm “Sunset Menu” are the Granitas: tea and coffee slushies that’ll cool you down and hype you up (well, two of them will — the Strawberry Lemon Limeade Granita is caffeine-free). Here’s what they look like:
Caramel Espresso Granita
Youthberry White Tea Granita
Strawberry Lemon Limeade Granita
Be careful, though — Venti Granitas contain between 37 and 58 grams of sugar. Wait, 58? Yikes. That’s more sugar than a king size Snickers. Seriously. If that isn’t enough for you, there are also new desserts. Check ’em!
Chocolate Brownie Trifle
Strawberry Shortcake Trifle
I have the nutrition facts on these, too, but forget it. I’m not sharing them. They’re too delicious-looking, and I don’t want to know. All I know is I want them in my fat stupid mouth right this second.
