The Starbucks Valentine's Day collection of drinks is based in the most popular food during this time of year -- chocolate.
There are three different drinks in the collection, ensuring that there is something for everyone. The Molten Chocolate Latte features chocolate chips that have been melted into espresso and is topped with mocha and espresso whipped cream -- and is offered both hot or cold. The Molten Chocolate Frappuccino features coffee, chocolate chips, ice, and mocha and espresso-infused whipped cream. Finally, the Molten Hot Chocolate is bittersweet and features melted chocolate chips in steamed milk.
This collection of chocolate-based beverages ensures that Starbucks is able to remain on top of popular industry patterns this time of year.
