Hands up who’s ready for autumn? No – seriously, doesn’t it feel like this has been the longest summer ever? Now, we’re not complaining (okay, maybe a little) but we’re officially ready to enjoy the falling leaves and late sunsets, and don’t even get us started on all the poetic autumnal walks we plan on going on…
But if there’s one thing we’re especially excited for, it’s *drumroll please*… Starbucks' Autumn Menu for 2022. And you betcha we’ve got the lowdown on the coffee chain’s plans for the remainder of the year – PSL fans, you’re in for a treat.
Brand-new for 2022, Starbucks' new menu features everything from Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew to Three Cheese Egg Bites, as well as Espresso Roast Blondies and Toffee Muffins. Now, let's get to it, shall we?
In terms of what we've all be waiting for (aka, the drinks we can get our greedy little gobs on), Starbucks' iconic Pumpkin Spice Latte is returning for yet another year, alongside the brand's Iced Salted Maple and Caramel Latte.
Not stopping there, and the newbie joining the UK Starbs family this year, say hello to the Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew – a crazy-delicious cold brew sweetened with vanilla syrup and topped with a pumpkin cream cold foam and a dusting of pumpkin. Y-U-M!
As far as food goes, the coffee chain's certainly taken things up a notch with the introduction of eight brand-spanking new menu items. We're talking American Deli Meats Focaccia Sarnies, Mushroom and Egg Muffins, Fiery No' Chicken Wraps and more.
But perhaps our favourite new item, the Egg Bites! Perfectly cooked using the sous-vide technique, these little bites take on a light and silky texture, and have been described as "the centre of a quiche, without all of the pastry."
Just Cluysenaer, Food and Beverage Director, said, “Each year, our customers eagerly anticipate the return of the PSL, knowing that it officially marks the change in season.
“We’ve already made great advances in cold coffee innovation, and with a growing number of our customers drinking their coffee iced all year round, this year we are delighted to introduce a new iced, pumpkin beverage. Combining two of our customer’s favourite tastes, iconic pumpkin spice and our refreshing Cold Brew, each sip of Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew will deliver the familiar, creamy flavour of pumpkin spice followed by the uplifting coffee flavour of Starbucks® Cold Brew.”
