Starbucks Rings in 2018 with New Black & White Mocha Collection
Starbucks newest Black and White Mocha collection is all dressed up for the new year. Available for a limited time, the trio of beverages features Starbucks espresso and a swirl of white and dark chocolate topped with whipped cream and a stripe of chocolate sequins.
“The New Year is a time to celebrate,” says Erin Marinan from Starbucks beverage development team. “The Black and White Mocha collection is a festive way to ring in 2018, with a stripe of sparkly chocolate sequins to resemble a black tie.”
Starting 27 December, customers can choose from a Black and White Mocha, Black and White Hot Cocoa or Black and White Frappuccino blended beverage at participating Starbucks stores in the US and Canada through the first week of January, while supplies last.
Black and White Mocha – hot espresso is poured over dark mocha sauce and white chocolate mocha sauce, which is then melted into a wonderfully rich concoction. Steamed milk is added to this swirl of dark mocha and white chocolate to balance the richness. The beverage is topped with whipped cream and a sprinkle of sparkly chocolate sequins. Customers can enjoy it hot or iced.
