A worrying trend online for lovers of Starbucks cinnamon-flavored drinks is this: does Starbucks have cinnamon dolce? Read to know what’s going on.
Cinnamon dolce, which means sweet cinnamon reminds me of my upbringing and the holidays. I’ve made it a habit to grab the cinnamon dolce latte when it’s cold, but a couple of times, the barista would tell me they are out of the cinnamon dolce. So, what was happening?
Not all Starbucks stores are out of cinnamon dolce, so this favorite drink is still on the menu. Worry not, the company is working hard to fix the issue. I’ve had to walk further to get a cinnamon dolce drink, but it’s worth it each time.
Did Starbucks get rid of cinnamon dolce?
Cinnamon dolce drinks and the accompanying cinnamon dolce syrup are a favorite for many, and that’s why there was cause for concern when it went missing in some stores. Starbucks was quick to put many at ease; cinnamon dolce was still on the menu. The supply chain that has affected the globe for the past few months was why cinnamon dolce wasn’t available in all stores.
With such franchises, the items you find in stores vary from market to market, and the demand for a particular product is not the same. The drink gets offered year-round, but during the festive season, many are looking to switch drinks to something that fits the occasion.
What is the cinnamon dolce drink at Starbucks?
The cinnamon dolce drink of choice at Starbucks is the cinnamon dolce latte, a favorite for many during cold months. The drink contains the classic espresso, hot milk and their sweet cinnamon syrup. To make the syrup, Starbucks uses a whipped blend of water, cinnamon, vanilla bean extract, brown sugar, and a bit of white sugar.
If you wish to skip the caffeine, there is an alternative. Cinnamon dolce crème is a blend of steamed milk, the dolce syrup topped with whipped cream, and a cinnamon dolce topping. I find this alternative fantastic since I can give the kids the cinnamon dolce crème as I enjoy my caffeine mix—no reason why they can’t enjoy the cinnamon taste too during freezing weather.
On hot days you can opt for the iced cinnamon dolce latte that combines elements of both recipes. It starts with espresso, hot milk, and the dolce syrup, then once the ice gets added, it’s topped with whipped cream, and the cinnamon dolce syrup gets drizzled on top.

Like other items on the Starbucks menu, you can order a cinnamon dolce drink via their website or app. Get to the menu, scroll down to hot coffees to get the cinnamon dolce latte, and if you want the cinnamon dolce crème, scroll down to hot drinks. Place your order in terms of the size you want, pay for it, and make your way to the store to pick it up. The GPS typically picks up your location, but you’re free to change it.
Remember, when something runs out at a Starbucks store, be patient with the baristas as they don’t often control what’s in supply. It’s especially so now we have a global supply chain issue. Starbucks is doing its best, and perhaps it would be a great time to try a drink you haven’t had before. Either way, it’s a relief to know that cinnamon dolce drinks are still on the menu.
