In Korea, the Starbucks coffee chain has just launched new products as part of its spring menu. And one of the novelties is an original drink: a 100% vegetable yoghurt drink. Dubbed “Pine Coco Green Yogurt Blended”, the drink is presented by the brand as a refreshing blend of coconut and pineapple yogurt drizzled with a crunchy coconut topping. This is the first time Starbucks has used vegan yogurt in any of its drinks worldwide.
Aside from this drinkable yogurt, the chain has just added 4 new vegan foods to the menu at its 1,500 Korean establishments. On the menu: a chocolate cake, a savory potato-based bagel, a spicy Mexican burrito and a tofu ciabatta sandwich. These new products have been available since February 25. Since introducing soy milk to its cafes in 2005, the Korean subsidiary of Starbucks has regularly launched seasonal drinks made from plant-based milk and is developing more and more vegan options to eat.
