Starbucks' Leaked Fall 2023 Menu Has Us Ready For The End Of Summer

In the midst of the hottest July planet Earth has ever seen, it's hard to imagine that sweater weather is just around the corner. But while we've been thinking of little else but ice pops and air conditioning, Starbucks has been hard at work, dreaming up a fall menu for the cooler days to come. Doing his part to remind us that more tolerable weather is on the horizon, foodie @markie_devo took to Instagram and X –- formerly known as Twitter –- to give us a sneak peek of Starbucks' 2023 fall menu, and the news is giving life to sweaty spooky season enthusiasts around the nation.

According to the post, which features an image reportedly leaked by a Starbucks employee, we can expect the return of fan-favorite coffee combinations like the Starbucks pumpkin spice latte, pumpkin cream cold brew, and Apple Crisp Oatmilk Macchiato, as well as two new coffee creations, including an iced pumpkin cream chai tea latte and an Iced Apple Crisp Oatmilk Shaken Espresso.

Hoards of delighted Starbucks fans sounded off in the comments, excited about the prospect of soon getting their hands on their favorite fall beverages. "The apple crisp macchiato is incredible," one commenter wrote. "I can't wait to have it again." Others expressed interest in trying the new menu items, with one Instagram user commenting, "That chai is gonna hit!"

Starbucks' fall-inspired food has Instagram atwitter

As for the lineup of fall-friendly baked goods at Starbucks, the highly coveted Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins and Owl Cake Pops have, once again, secured a spot on the autumnal menu, with the addition of a new Baked Apple Croissant, which will be available at locations with food-warming capabilities, according to the Instagram post.

While many commenters were devastated to learn that Starbucks' Pumpkin scone didn't make the cut for the 2023 fall menu, others seemed to be quickly consoled by the bid debut of the Baked Apple Croissant. "I have a feeling those apple croissants are going to be the first thing to sell out every day," one commenter predicted, while several others expressed their interest in the new food item.

The Instagram post suggests that the new menu is set to be released on August 29, and will run through November 1. Mashed reached out to Starbucks for comment, but they have yet to respond.
