Starbucks Granitas

Starbucks

Today may not be a legally recognized holiday, but if you're a Starbucks lover like us, it should be. Why? In addition to their recent fudge-covered masterpiece, they just released like a zillion new treats today, and our stomachs, minds, and souls are stoked. Before we get into specifics, we'll tease you with what you can expect. What do snow cones, brownies and shortcake have in common? Other than being delicious and terrible for you, they can now be found at Starbucks. 

They're all part of their new "Sunset Menu," which is available right about that time you need a serious pick-me-up (3 p.m., to be exact). Because they're so generous, the new products (which we swear we're about to tell you about in just a second), are available in both the states and Canada. This is a summertime-only thang so get your mouths to Starbucks like right now. Alright, we promised you a round-up of the new items, so here's a round-up of the new items. Look at them. SAVOR THEM. THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL.

Starbucks Granitas

1. Starbucks Caramel Espresso Granita. What the magical heck is a Granita? Think of it like a drinkable snow cone (and try to resist it). If you're into shaved ice that comes in flavors only a coffee shop with a Cherry Blossom Frappuccino could imagine, Granitas are your BB. In this handsome version, expect cream, espresso shots and caramel topping, and potentially an addiction to the beverage for the duration of the summer season.

2. Teavana Youthberry® White Tea Granita. Starbucks describes this item as a "Refreshing lemonade flavored, finely shaved ice topped with Teavana Youthberry White tea that combines white tea, pineapple, acai and hibiscus." Def getting in on that. Also, WHAT is a "Youthberry" and can we smear it on our premature wrinkles?

3. Starbucks Strawberry Lemon-Limeade Granita. Another sippable slice of satisfaction. This time, you'll be drinking a cup full of strawberries, limeade and lemonade mixed into your shaved ice. We're not worthy.

4. Chocolate Brownie Trifle. Granitas have been covered, and now we're on to the Trifles. Technically it doesn't look sippable, but it's new, fabulous and in a cup, so we're putting it on our list. We're sure if you really wanted to, you could probs ask your friendly barista to blend it into a drink for you. Honestly, why would you though when you can just dig right into this dessert? Expect nothing less than "layers of whipped cream," says Starbucks, and for this flavor, brownies (duh) and a mocha-themed drizzle to top it off.

5. Strawberry Shortcake Trifle. Not all of us like chocolate, and that's just fine and dandy. You can still live your best life via the Shortcake Trifle. Mini vanilla scones topped with whipped cream and strawberry sauce will change your life. In other words, you'll be making more trips to Starbucks than your local gym. No one can judge you when you're life is so delicious.
