Starbucks® 2019 seasonal items are NOW available!!
It’s that time of year…. Starbucks just released their 2019 holiday drink flavors: Gingerbread (not available this year in the USA but in Canada), Peppermint Mocha, Toasted White Chocolate Mocha, Caramel Brulée Latte, Chestnut Praline Latte and Maple Pecan. The flavors are available hot, iced or as a blended Frappuccino. Keep in mind only the hot beverages come in the red cups.
Did you know Starbucks has over 170,000 ways to customize beverages? WOW! That can be very overwhelming trying to find a WW friendly option that fits your lifestyle. Here is a Starbucks Holiday Drink and Food WW guide to help make that decision a little more easier!
Starbucks Customization Tips:
1. Select your milk: You can choose from whole, 2% milk or nonfat milk, or non-dairy alternatives such as soy, coconut and almond.
2. Choose how many pumps of syrup you want: To lower the points of your flavored beverage, ask for fewer pumps of syrup, or select a sugar-free syrup.
3. Ask for “less whip” or “no whip.”
Gingerbread:expresso, steamed choice of milk, gingerbread syrup
Toasted White Chocolate Mocha:espresso, steamed choice of milk, white chocolate syrup
Caramel Brulée Latte: espresso, steamed choice of milk, caramel brûlée syrup

Note: According to Starbucks, the Gingerbread Latte will not be available in the United States for 2019, but you’ll have the other holiday options. Starbucks says participating locations in Canada will have the Gingerbread holiday drink, so I’d make sure to grab one if you live in Canada or travel there this year.
