Starbucks Has New a New Hot Cocoa But Not the Holiday Item Brandi Looks Forward To

Kathryn Barnard Photography/ newsroom

Starbucks is always introducing new products for their loyal customers and I, as one of those loyalists, appreciate all of their hard work. I was a bit confused by the green equality cup that came out right around the time of our national election, but I quickly adapted. The red holiday cup returned (slightly different version) and I loved that too, as I am sure the all knowing persons in product development were pretty confident that I would like that too.

The newest product that Starbucks has come out with is called the SnickerDoodle Hot Cocoa and is available starting December 2, 2016 at a Starbucks location near you. According to their website,  it is made with steamed milk, white chocolate sauce and cinnamon dolce syrup, topped with whipped cream and a dusting of cinnamon sugar. It sounds like liquid Christmas in a cup.

However, is one holiday tradition that I can no longer find at my local Starbucks. What I am referring to is the annual Starbucks advent calendar. This was an advent calendar for adults and one that I look forward to every year. Starbucks ever so quietly did not release one this year. The reason? I am guessing, not everyone of their customers looked as forward to it as I did.
