These Starbucks Holiday Favorites Are Returning For 2021

For fans of Starbucks, the only thing better than the return of the chain's pumpkin spice latte is the debut of its seasonal red cups. While Starbucks has released its first dairy-free holiday drink and four brand-new festive cup designs, there are also a lot of old customer favorites coming back to locations nationwide in 2021. Grab your favorite reusable coffee mug, head to your local Starbucks, and decide if you want a hot or iced drink to ring in the winter holidays.

Beginning Thursday, November 4, popular Starbucks holiday beverages including the Peppermint Mocha, Caramel Brûlée Latte, Chestnut Praline Latte, Toaasted White Chocolate Mocha, and Irish Cream Cold Brew will all be available to order. This is the earliest that the Irish Cream Cold Brew has ever been made available for the holiday season. And if you're hungry, the coffee chain hasn't forgotten that you'll probably want some festive treats to go with all those holiday drinks.

These treats are also coming back

While it may feel like Starbucks holiday drinks get all of the attention, many fans get excited about the seasonal release of the chain's edible holiday offerings, too. This year, the Sugar Plum Danish, Cranberry Bliss Bar, and Snowman Cookie are all returning to food cases. Plus, one new dessert joins their ranks: the Reindeer Cake Pop, complete with antlers and a red Rudolph nose. When you go to Starbucks to order your favorite holiday beverage, you'll also have a themed treat to help you fully welcome the occasion.

These sweet treats will be available throughout the holiday season, but you don't want to wait to get your first cup. Those who swing by participating Starbucks locations on November 4, the first day the holiday drinks are available, will get a free reusable red cup to use all winter long. Those who visit the store with their reusable cups will get a $0.10 discount on any beverage — including the holiday flavors.
