'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.

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
