Starbucks is stirring up a bit of controversy for the holiday season, with the announcement that the fan-favorite eggnog latte is NOT going to be making a return. In addition, the gingerbread latte is also not making a return even though the Seattle-based coffee chain included both items in its holiday menu last month.
“As a standard course of business, we continually evaluate the items on our menu, using various criteria to ensure we are meeting the needs of our customers and our business priorities,” said a Starbucks spokesperson when asked for comment.
“Our partners will be happy to recommend an alternative holiday beverage like the new Iced Sugar Cookie Almondmilk Latte or the classic Peppermint Mocha.”
Naturally, fans are upset and have been speaking out on social media. The news has stirred up quite a heated discussion with one fan even creating an online petition, urging Starbucks to bring back the eggnog latte.
