If you haven’t already heard the news, Starbucks announced that its holiday drinks have returned. But as fans of all things Starbucks found out, the Gingerbread Latte was not on the menu!
That’s right people. The Gingerbread Latte will not be making a return to U.S. Starbucks stores and I am freaking pissed!
“The Gingerbread Latte is no longer on the Starbucks holiday menu in the U.S.,” Starbucks confirmed:
Customers can enjoy five delicious and festive holiday beverages this year including the Peppermint Mocha, Toasted White Chocolate Mocha, Caramel Brulee Latte, Chestnut Praline Latte, and Eggnog Latte. Our partners (baristas) are happy to suggest one of these five other holiday beverages, and customers can still enjoy the Gingerbread Loaf as part of their holiday season!
Needless to say, there are some people (like me) in the world that are PISSED and vented about it on Twitter:
I'm really sad that @Starbucks isn't bringing back the #gingerbreadlatte I was SOOO looking forward to it this season. It's saved as one of my favorites! 😪

Many hardcore Gingerbread Latte fans have found that you can still get one at a Starbucks in Canada. You can also try the one from Dunkin if you are craving it that much.
Thank god there’s a ton of holiday season left, so maybe they are just pulling our leg?SKM: below-content placeholder
