The Starbucks Holiday Menu In Canada Is So Different From The US & Here's What We're Missing
Even their bakery items sound better!
'Tis the season! Starbucks holiday drinks are officially back in Canada for 2022, including festive drinks and baked goods sure to put you in the Christmas spirit.
As of November 3, Starbucks Canada's holiday menu brings back some of their festive faves, including drinks like the Peppermint Mocha, Caramel Brûlé Latte and Chestnut Praline Latte, and festive bakery items like their seasonal cake pops.
However, Starbucks' holiday menu in Canada is much different from that of the U.S. In fact, Americans have more holiday drink options and festive bakery items to choose from.
Here's a look at what's on the menu at Starbucks Canada and Starbucks U.S. this holiday season.
Sugar Cookie Oat Latte
Sugar Cookie Oat Latte.
Canadians will be able to enjoy Starbucks' Sugar Cookie Oat Latte again this season after it made its debut as the first-ever non-dairy holiday beverage at Starbucks in 2021.
The drink features blonde espresso, sugar cookie syrup and oat beverage and is topped with red and green sprinkles for an extra festive sip.
Irish Cream Americano
Irish Cream Americano.
Exclusive to Canada is Starbucks' Irish Cream Americano, which pairs caramelly espresso with Irish Cream syrup and steamed milk with a sprinkle of cocoa.
For more Irish Cream options, Canadians can also order an Irish Cream Cold Brew, a blend of Starbucks' cold brew coffee with Irish Cream syrup that's topped with Vanilla Sweet Cream Foam and a bit of cocoa powder.
On the bakery side, Starbucks Canada is bringing back their Cranberry Bliss Bar and Snowman Cookie, in addition to favourites like their Gingerbread Loaf, which is spiced gingerbread cake topped with icing and a hint of orange.
Peppermint Brownie Cake Pop

In non-dairy options, Americans can enjoy an Iced Sugar Cookie Almondmilk Latte, a drink that switches out the oat milk used in Canada's version and puts it on ice.
The drink features sugar cookie-flavoured syrup combined with Starbucks' Blonde espresso and almond milk, and is topped with festive red and green sprinkles.
Chocolate Pistachio Swirl
Chocolate Pistachio Swirl.
In addition to the Cranberry Bliss Bar and Snowman Cookie that will also be returning to Canada, customers in the U.S. will have even more options for baked goods.

Reindeer Cake Pop
