It’s a pretty big deal when Starbucks releases their holiday cups and drinks each year. People go crazy for their delectable Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha and Caramel Brûlé Lattes. But have you ever wondered what drinks the baristas are whipping up in other countries? Starbucks recently released a report sharing what holiday beverages are being served worldwide and you’ll be fascinated by what they’re brewing.

The most peculiar item on the menu is probably the Snowy Cheese Flavoured Latte which is served in China. The release reads, “A dreamy new holiday beverage made with baked cheese flavoured sauce blended into classic espresso and topped with light whipped cream, blueberry flavoured sprinkles and star-shaped crisps.” Huh?! It would be one thing if it were cheesecake, but the cheese flavour and blueberry sprinkles sound questionable. We still want to try it though.
Some other beverages that stood out are the Christmas Dessert Latte, which is also available in China and is inspired by Christmas pudding and the Christmas Strawberry Cake Milk, a drink that’s available in Japan and is made with sponge cake, whipped cream, strawberries and steamed milk.
There are a few items on the list that should be added to the Canadian menu stat. Like the Salted Caramel Brownie Hot Chocolate, a drink that’s available in Europe, Middle East and Asia that looks like a deluxe brownie dessert in a cup. Or the Cranberry White Chocolate Mocha, which is back by popular demand in Latin America and looks like the most festive drink out there.
