Starbucks kicks off 2021 with a new winter menu and additions to its permanent lineup.

Starting Tuesday at participating locations nationwide, customers can order the new Honey Almondmilk Cold Brew and Pistachio Latte inspired by a beverage that launched at Starbucks Reserve Roasteries. The latte is made with espresso and steamed milk combined with a sauce made with real pistachios and a salted, brown, buttery topping.

The Seattle-based coffee giant announced that Kale and Portabella Mushroom Sous Vide Egg Bites and the returning Honey Almondmilk Flat White are permanent items.

There’s also a Red Velvet Loaf and Earth Cake Pop available for a limited time, as well as two Starbucks Reserve whole bean coffees — Guatemala Huehuetenango and Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Chelelektu.

The Starbucks Reserve coffee will be sold at 3,200 company-operated stores in the USA. Previously, the drink had been served only at Starbucks Reserve Roasteries, Reserve bars and select Starbucks locations around the world, the company said, advising customers to use the Starbucks app to find which locations carry the coffee.

Other beverages that debuted at Starbucks Roasteries before launching at stores include the Nitro Cold Brew and seasonal drinks such as the Cascara Latte, Smoked Butterscotch Latte and the Juniper Latte.

Starbucks’ Honey Almondmilk Cold Brew is a non-dairy beverage made with slow-steeped Starbucks Cold Brew, combined with honey and then topped with almondmilk for a creamy finish.

Starbucks announcement is one of many made by restaurants about new menu items. Last week, Dunkin’ released Extra Charged Coffee with 20% more caffeine and a Dunkfetti Donut.

Chipotle’s Cilantro-Lime Cauliflower Rice debuted nationwide Monday, and McDonald’s announced it would release three chicken sandwiches Feb. 24.

Last month, Starbucks shared during its biennial Investor Day that cold beverages featuring nondairy milk continue to resonate with customers and said millennials and Gen-Z-ers under 30 are two times more likely to drink cold coffee.
