Starbucks is one of the most popular coffee companies in the world. You can find it almost on any corner, whether you’re in New York or Spain. But the question remains: is Starbucks really worth the money?
Some may consider their menu to be overpriced or simply just not worth it, but there’s something about their drinks that we just can’t stop drinking.
Here is a list of delicious drinks from Starbucks that are definitely worth the money:
1. Caramel Macchiato
One of the main things that everyone loves about Starbucks is the fact that most of their drinks can be hot or cold.
If you’re one of those people who prefers a cold drink year round, then an iced Caramel Macchiato will quench your thirst. It’s sweet, yet still gives you that caffeine kick.
The caramel syrup surrounding the cup is a simple yet effective decoration that takes the crown. Sometimes simplicity is what Starbucks is best at.
2. Vanilla Cream Frappucino
The flavored Frappucinos are ideal for those people who aren’t a fan of coffee. Their Frappucinos range from a large variety of options from caramel to chocolate. But the vanilla cream is surprisingly affordable for all the drink that gets added into a cup.
You also get to pick a syrup of your choice on top. Of course, with a small additional charge. At this point, that small charge means nothing once you’ve already ordered a drink.
3. Chai Tea Latte
Do you ever feel cool walking into Starbucks and ordering a drink that not a lot of your friends have heard of? Or even ordering a drink that has an alternative name?
The chai tea latte is best served iced, and it may actually be too sweet for some, but everyone who has tried it has been obsessed with it. If you find it too sweet for your taste buds, make sure to ask for it unsweetened, because they’ll do that for you.
And when it comes to ordering, you can even refer to a chai tea latte as a ‘Tazo’. Iced at that.
4. Pumpkin Spice Latte
Although this Starbucks drink is not all year round, once Fall arrives, everyone goes crazy for the themed drink.
It’s the perfect combination of Fall and spices to remind you of when you were a kid. It’s like one season perfectly crafted into a cup. The flavor is not too overpowering and it isn’t sweet, either.
It’s the ideal drink for those who want to feel warm inside while also enjoying their first cup of coffee of the day.
5. Java Chip Frappucino
Oh, my days. The java chip Frappucino is actually like a liquefied dessert. Skip eating a meal, because this drink will do the trick.
With the edible chocolate chips mixed with the drink, you’ll be chewing as well as sipping. It is sweet and perfect for those obsessed with chocolate.
6. Teavana Shaken Iced Teas
The iced teas that Starbucks provides are probably one of the few things off their menu that are definitely worth the money.
Some seasons they will have special flavors that are limited edition, but their core iced teas are: black tea, black tea lemonade, green tea, green tea lemonade, passion tango tea and our favorite passion tango tea lemonade.
It’s a large cup of refreshing that will instantly cool you down.
7. Cinnamon Dolce Cream
One step above a hot chocolate, the cinnamon dolce cream is a soothing and warm Starbucks drink with a large dollop of whipped cream on top.
Although there is no caffeine in this drink, it’s the perfect combination of ingredients for those who have had enough coffee for the day or for children who find themselves at Starbucks.
They have a caffeinated alternative for the adults called the Cinnamon Dolce Latte!
8. Flat White
One of the most popular types of coffees in the world, and Starbucks does it well. The drink comes in one size and allows you to sweeten it or add any extra ingredients to it yourself. At this point, you could be the barista yourself, but some people are very selective about their coffee, so it’s the best solution.
A simple order, next to the classic Espresso, that Starbucks manages to perfect. Although they are known for the extravagant drinks, sometimes Starbucks does simplicity best.
9. Cold Brew
Calling all the black coffee obsessed fanatics! Who said that Starbucks doesn’t cater to everyone?
Their cold brew is almost revolutionary for the fact that it is instantly cold when you receive it. In some coffee shops, you’ll notice that when they make hot drinks iced, they will simply add some ice cubes.
With the cold brew, although a very easily prepared drink, it is perfectly bitter and cold.
For those who don’t exactly like their coffee too bitter, Starbucks does alternative cold brew drinks such as: cold brew coffee with milk or vanilla sweet cream cold brew.
10. Very Berry Hibiscus Lemonade
More refreshing than the Teavana, if you don’t see someone who’s been to Starbucks holding a classic Frappucino, you will definitely see them with a Very Berry.
The perfect pick-me up that you might need after a hard day at the office or you’ve been feeling low. It is instantly calming and chug worthy. Make sure you get a large, because you might end up drinking it all in one go.
11. Iced White Chocolate Mocha
Although the calories might beg to differ on this one, this drink is sweet, cooling and delicious.
Most might not agree with the drink due to its sweet flavor, but Starbucks has added their signature Espresso to the recipe and upgraded it to appeal to a wider audience.
There are those who prefer their coffee bitter and simple. Then there are those who prefer a lot of cherries on top.
At the end of the day, Starbucks has something for everyone.
