Starbucks discontinued its fall favorite Salted Caramel Mocha in 2021, which didn’t go well with many customers. When does Starbucks bring back salted caramel mocha if it’s coming back?
We can’t say with certainty when Starbucks will bring the Salted Caramel Mocha back to its menu after being discontinued in 2021. We’re waiting for the release of the 2022 fall menu, which will be available around August. In 2021, I was among the disappointed people who learned that the Starbucks 2021 fall menu would be missing the Salted Caramel Mocha. Can you imagine waiting for the drink all year round, only for Starbucks to remove it from the menu? It wasn’t a pleasant thing for many of us. To find alternatives, I had to navigate the Starbucks menu beyond the Salted Caramel Mocha.
Yes, Starbucks discontinued the Salted Caramel Mocha in fall 2021. The Salted Caramel Mocha was made with a combination of mocha sauce and toffee nut syrup added to coffee and steamed milk and topped with caramel drizzle, sweetened whipped cream, and a blend of sea salt and turbinado sugar. It was the most enjoyed Starbucks fall drink for many Starbucks lovers. After waiting all summer for the Salted Caramel Mocha, I was really disappointed to miss it in the fall. I don’t know whether Starbucks will bring the salted caramel mocha back, but I’m also loving the new Apple Crisp Macchiato.
Yes, the salted caramel mocha is seasonal, and No, it is not because a version of it is available all year round. It’s a seasonal drink because the sea salt sprinkles Starbucks used to make the salted caramel mocha is a seasonal product available only during fall. So, you wouldn’t get the salted caramel mocha with all the ingredients, especially the sea salt sprinkle, any time of the year other than fall. Starbucks marketed the Salted Caramel Mocha as a fall drink and made it a fall favorite for many customers. Many people couldn’t afford to miss the rich toffee nut with mocha syrup mixed in a steamed latte.
It’s not seasonal because customers could still get it all year long. If you needed the Starbucks salted caramel mocha anytime other than fall, you’d have to sacrifice the great seasonal sea salt sprinkle. If you couldn’t miss the sea salt, you could try making your own salted caramel mocha at home, but that wouldn’t be a Starbucks original.
The salted caramel mocha has been a fall favorite Starbucks drink with its rich toffee nut, mocha syrups, and steamed latte. It used to be my perfect sip while sitting by the fire, and I couldn’t miss it during fall. I’ve now resorted to learning how to make the salted caramel mocha just in case Starbucks doesn’t bring it back on the menu.
The Salted Caramel Mocha is Off the Starbucks menu. It used to be seasonal, but you could order it without the salt. Using a homemade recipe, you can still make your own iced salted caramel mocha at home, but you’ll miss the salted caramel topping.
Yes, you can order the Salted Caramel Mocha on the Starbucks app. But ordering in the store is the best experience.
First, you’ll order a hot, iced espresso Frappuccino mocha just as Starbucks makes it. You’ll then ask for the toffee nut syrup, caramel drizzle, and whipped cream. You’ll specify the turbinado sugar and sea salt to sprinkle on top. If you don’t take sugar, you can just go with salt.
