A Starbucks in California confirmed to The U.S. Sun on March 14 that raspberry syrup will be discontinued by the end of the month.

It follows reports online from both Starbucks baristas and fans across the nation that the syrup is saying sayonara.

Baristas on social media revealed that they had received the news with an internal weekly update given to all U.S. stores by the head office.

The flavor is used in some of its most popular drinks, such as Raspberry Iced Tea, Raspberry Chocolate Dream Frappuccino, and Raspberry Lime Refresher.

Many Starbucks loyalists also customize beverages such as Iced Matcha Lattes and Acai Lemonades with the syrup.

Therefore, it’s no surprise that dismayed fans have taken to social media to share their rage over the news.

“I will never buy Starbucks again,” wrote one on TikTok.

Another said: “I can’t go without my Strawberry Acai Lemonade with raspberry.”

Starbucks previously sold its signature syrups on Amazon.

However, the raspberry flavor is now sold out in the U.S.


But it’s not all bad news for Starbucks lovers.

The chain recently introduced a new beverage nationwide – the Cinnamon Caramel Cream Nitro Cold Brew.

Since hitting branches on March 7, customers have been all over the chilled option.

“The new Cinnamon Caramel Cream Nitro Cold Brew from Starbucks gets an easy 10/10,” wrote one on Twitter.

Another posted: “Spoiler alert: I LOVE IT! Run to Starbucks and grab a Cinnamon Caramel Cream Nitro Cold Brew now.”

The cold drinks options at Starbucks have been dominating the menu in recent years, and the popular Pink Drink is also coming to grocery stores.

The beverage, which was first introduced at local coffee houses in 2016, has been an “overwhelming success” according to Starbucks chief executive officer Howard Schultz.

Part of its Refreshers line, the drink is made of passionfruit and coconut milk – but contains no coffee.

Starbucks told The U.S. Sun that while a date has not been announced for the drink’s grocery store debut, it will be available nationwide.
