Newfoodsuk took to Facebook to share the latest Starbucks coffee flavour that has been released just in time for the festive period.

“Starbucks White Chocolate Mocha Drinks spotted at Morrisons,” the page captioned the image, along with a Santa Clause and happy emoji. 

In its red and green packaging, the Starbucks Holiday Edition White Chocolate Mocha comes with a handy lid and straw.

Starbucks has described the chilled coffee as a “bold espresso, creamy milk with hints of white chocolate flavour”.

The Facebook post racked up a mega 2.5k likes and over 2.3k comments from coffee lovers across the internet.

One wrote: “My partner and I love them and bought ten yesterday in our local morrisons yesterday, there lovely”.

Another said: “Say what now, am going there today”.

A third commented: “This is not a drill”.

A fourth excited shopper added: “This is the one I’m always looking for!!”.

The iconic red cup has sent customers into a frenzy as Starbucks sets the mood for the festive season.

Speaking to Grocery Trader, Laura Scott, Senior Commercial Marketing Manager at Starbucks said: “Mirroring the Starbucks’ Coffee Houses, Starbucks Red Cup RTD truly marks the start of the festive season for many consumers.

“Not only does the eye-catching Christmas-themed design offer some festive fun to consumers, but increases stand out on shelf, at a time when footfall to the chilled drinks fixture tends to be lower.”

The chilled coffee has also been spotted at Sainsbury’s, selling for £2.20 per cup.

It comes after Nutella fans went wild for a “delicious” new Christmas edition spotted on shelves at Asda last month.

Sweet-toothed punters can now nab a 236g bag of Nutella biscuits for £2.75.

Aldi’s iconic middle aisle is now also chock-full of festive bargains including lights, gonks, and Christmas trees.

A savvy shopper took to TikTok to show the bargain retailer’s wide Christmas range including £1.49 party props, bunting, foil balloons, and paper pinwheels.

And an American tried the new limited edition Christmas products from Lidl and said she was “obsessed”.

She tried the box of six reindeer filled bao buns, turkey and stuffing crisps, and a box of two white chocolate souffles.
