Trying Viral Starbucks Drinks

Social media platforms, such as Tik Tok, have popularized specific Starbucks drinks, so much so that baristas already know the order

Many Starbucks drinks have become popular on Tik Tok and now customers will not stop coming up with new creations.

While the popular social media app Tik Tok has created tons of viral products, trends and clothing, one well-known trend is ordering new and creative Starbucks drinks. Some creators such as Anna Sitar and Tori Ralston have become known for their own drink combinations, as well as reviewing the drinks themselves. 

Iced White Mocha with Sweet Cream Cold Foam and Caramel Drizzle

This sweet drink is like a dessert in a cup and has come to be loved by many. The only downside to this very popular drink is the price. A venti size rounds up to be about 7 dollars, which is a lot for just a coffee. If you are not a sweet coffee drinker though, this combination would definitely not be for you. There is very little coffee flavor as the base of the drink is a latte, meaning there is not more than a shot of espresso inside. The rest is all just cream and lots of sugar, which is great for someone who doesn’t love coffee. Overall this is a great drink to try if you feel like spending the extra money, and it is something one knows they will enjoy if they love a sweet drink. 

Iced Coffee with Sweet Cream and Four Pumps of White Mocha

This drink has a very similar taste to the one above, but it is half the price. A venti size rings up to be about 4 dollars, and there is a stronger coffee taste. Since this is an iced coffee rather than a latte, there is more caffeine and a more prominent coffee flavor. If one is looking for a way to stretch their dollar rather than treat themselves, this is a great way to go. 

Iced Chai Tea Latte with Pumpkin Cream Cold Foam

Sadly, the cold foam in this drink is seasonal, but one can recreate it year-round with the vanilla sweet cream foam and cinnamon to top it off. It is not the exact same taste, but it does the trick. This treat is like fall in a cup, and another great option for those who don’t love the taste of coffee. It is filled with flavor from the chai, but still gives you the great caffeine boost from the tea and coffee blend. 

What makes these Tik Tok drinks special is the idea that one can customize a beverage to their own taste. There is also a wide variety of milk options for those with allergies or food sensitivities that can also be accommodated. When the menu can start to get repetitive if one drinks Starbucks frequently, trying out these new drinks can help add some spontaneity to the morning.
