Starbucks' New Line Of Ready-To-Drink Canned Coffee Features An Oatmilk Frappuccino

Starbucks and its retail partner PepsiCo have been producing ready-to-drink (RTD) canned and bottled coffees for 30 years through their North American Coffee Partnership (NACP). The collaboration shows no signs of slowing down, as evidenced by the extraordinary variety in their latest product line launch.

On March 28, the coffee giant announced the release of a new array of offerings, with over a dozen new coffee drinks now available at supermarkets and retail outlets throughout the U.S. Among the notable additions is the Starbucks Oatmilk Frappuccino Chilled Coffee Drink — a non-dairy alternative catering to those who are lactose intolerant, allergic to dairy, or choose to avoid it for dietary reasons — along with an assortment of new cold brew flavors.

The bottled non-dairy Oatmilk Frappuccino offers flavor options, including Caramel Waffle Cookie and Dark Chocolate Brownie varieties, now sold nationwide at a suggested price of $3.99. Starbucks, noting that its new drinks are in response to consumer demands, seems to have recognized a growing preference for oat milk, a vegan alternative to heavy cream. This is further evidenced by the introduction of a new Oatmilk Brown Sugar variety of its Multi-Serve Cold Brew.

More new ready-to-drink coffees now available

Doubleshot and Tripleshot Energy drinks are also featured in Starbucks' recently unveiled ready-to-drink lineup. The 11-ounce cans of Tripleshot Energy contain a robust 165 milligrams of caffeine, and include energy-boosting protein and B vitamins. Available in three flavors — Bold Mocha, Dark Caramel, and Rich Vanilla — the cans are now sold at a suggested price of $4.19.

The new Doubleshot Energy drinks also include B vitamins, and are enhanced with ginseng and guarana, the latter being a stimulant extract sourced from plants in Brazil's Amazon region. Priced the same, these drinks are offered in five flavors: Coffee, Mocha, Caramel, Vanilla, and White Chocolate.

Starbucks' Cold Brew cans, popular since their 2016 debut, are also available in 11-ounce servings, but at a slightly lower price of $3.59. Customers can choose from three flavors: Chocolate Cream, Salted Caramel Cream, and Vanilla Sweet Cream. Notably, the Oatmilk Brown Sugar is not the sole new Cold Brew variant; a Caramel Cream flavor is now available in multi-serve bottles. And if all this cold brew triggers a hankering for something hot, your local Starbucks cafe is always an option — just maybe skip ordering your latte extra hot.
