Starbucks Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew

Starbucks is currently testing a nitrogen-infused cold brew coffee at select Starbucks locations in the U.S., but the coffee chain’s new Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew is available nationwide.

The beverage features Starbucks’ 20-hour slow steeped Cold Brew Coffee over ice and is topped with house-made vanilla sweet cream, which floats on top of the beverage before slowly cascading down. The iced beverage is available throughout the summer in the U.S. and Canada.

A 16-ounce serving has 110 calories, 6 grams of fat, 3.5 grams of saturated fat, 0 grams of trans fat, 20 milligrams of cholesterol, 25 milligrams of sodium, 14 grams of carbohydrates, 0 grams of fiber, 14 grams of sugar, 1 gram of protein, and 185 milligrams of caffeine.

  1. Tried it this morning, it was good! I got a Grande and personally I could have used a touch less of the cream, but the standard amount was so much that I wasn’t going to drink it. I’d describe it as a richer, bolder iced coffee.
    The vanilla flavor isn’t overwhelming. I’d probably order it again, with a smidge less of the cream 🙂

  2. I was not impressed. I was expecting it to have a sweet vanilla taste….instead it tasted like my normal cold brew with a splash of half and half. Maybe it was just my Starbucks? Anyone else have a similar experience?

    1. I experienced the same thing. I thought maybe the barista messed up my order. I rather just have the reg cold brew for 5 cals instead of 110 cals w this “vanilla sweet cream”

    2. It was your Starbucks. Just tried it and it was fantastic. A nice twist for someone who normally drinks iced coffee black.

    3. I had the same experience! I thought maybe they made it wrong. No vanilla flavor, no sweetness. It was terrible!

  3. I think it depends on the barista honestly. I’ve learned to order the drink with extra cream because sometimes the barista doesn’t put enough cream. That’s when the flavor gets lost. But I love this drink. It’s definitely my new favorite. So simple yet so good.
