Starbucks has upgraded the classic cold brew with its exquisite cold foam toppings. Now, the Seattle-based coffee giant is adding yet another rendition to menus, and it was "inspired by nostalgic summer moments."  

Just in time for spring, Starbucks has unveiled its Chocolate Cream Cold Brew, which features a light, sweet, and silky chocolate cream cold foam topping with sweetened vanilla syrup. The menu item will be available permanently starting on Tuesday, May 10. 

"When creating this beverage, we wanted to bring our customers a drink that would transport them back to their favorite summer memories with each sip," Rosalyn Batingan, a Starbucks beverage developer, said in a statement. "The classic combination of coffee and notes of chocolate, along with the malt flavoring of the chocolate cream cold foam, are reminiscent of a chocolate malted milkshake or that last bit of melted chocolate ice cream on a warm summer day to recreate the sweet, creamy flavor of summers past."

And if you need a snack to ward off those caffeine jitters, might we suggest the all-new Lime-Frosted Coconut Bar or any one of the returning favorites, such as the Bacon, Sausage, & Egg Wrap or the Unicorn Cake Pop? All three items will be available starting Tuesday, May 10, but only the bar and wrap will be permanent menu additions like the new cold brew. The cake pop is a limited-time-only treat. 

The new Lime-Frosted Coconut Bar features coconut, oatmeal, and mini white chocolate chips topped with a lime frosting, a drizzle of white icing, and more coconut shavings.
