It’s that time of year again when Starbucks’ bakery gets a delicious new twist, inspired by holiday favorites. As great as Starbucks’ regular bakery treats are, these sweet treats are perfect to pair with a warm winter drink to sustain you throughout your holiday shopping.
Alongside this year’s Starbucks holiday menu drinks, there are five sweet treats to choose from, including cookies, danishes, and cake pop varieties.
Below, we’ll dive into Starbucks’ 2023 bakery items you won’t want to miss.
1. Starbucks Holiday-Inspired Cake Pops
Starbucks’ cake pops are one of the chain’s classic bakery treats and something that sets them apart from other coffee chains. This year, the holiday bakery menu includes a holiday-inspired variety: peppermint brownie cake pop.
This white and red cake pop features an inside of a chocolate peppermint cake which is coated in white chocolate frosting and little bits of candy cane.
The peppermint brownie cake pop is rich and delicious (plus aesthetically pleasing).
This cake pop differs from ones Starbucks has offered in past years, such as the Reindeer cake pop which had a vanilla cake inside instead.
Each peppermint brownie cake pop contains 160 calories, 19 grams of sugar, and 6 grams of fat.
