Starbucks joins the race with its first sakura drink of 2019

29 January 2019 by Chris

We all knew it and were waiting for it.

After Shake Shack announced its Shack-ura recently, some people were starting to wonder when would Starbucks announce its own limited edition for this year's sakura season. And as per usual, they didn't disappoint.

Let us introduce you the Sakura Chocolate with Strawberry jelly chipped cup (and good luck for ordering it considering the name).

This cup will be available in all the convenience stores around the country, making it more accessible than other products (no need to go to a Starbucks for it) and unmissable thanks to its very unique design: pink and gold sakura features with some blue hints representing a clear spring sky, with the cherry blossom-inspired pink lid.

The drink itself is going to be a mix of creamy milk, white chocolate and sakura with and addition of strawberry juice jelly pieces in it. Tempted yet?

This is the first product out for this season and will be available on February 12th, but we can still expect some sakura-related frappuccino and lattes announcements very soon and we can't wait! In case you wonder why, have a look year at what Starbucks had to offer last year, both for drinks and related goods:
