Starbucks Launches Vegan ‘Superfood’ Chocolate And Fruit Popsicles

1 Minutes Read

Coffee giant Starbucks has launched high-tech 3D printed vegan popsicles in five of its Los Angeles outlets.

Dream Pops will be available between 2pm and 5pm until October 5 at at La Brea and 4th, Melrose and Stanley, Santa Monica’s Third Street Promenade, Wilshire and Santa Monica, and San Vincente and Barrington.

According to reports, if the launch is successful, the pops – which come in a range of flavors including chocolate – could potentially roll out nationwide and beyond.

‘Thrilled’

Posting about the collaboration on Instagram, Dream Pops said: “We’re thrilled to announce our exclusive partnership with Starbucks…Head to one of our select stores to get your daily coffee fix and cool down with a delicious Dream Pop.”

The pops are soy and gluten-free and contain fewer than 100 calories and seven grams of sugar each.

Speaking about the product, the brand says: “We are proponents of healthy lifestyles and ice cream’s appeal is undeniable, but its allure has also stunted its potential to change with the times…by creating a flavor-packed plant-based alternative powered by real food and real ingredients, we’re rewriting culinary history.”

Vegan

Earlier this year, the coffee giant pledged to increase plant-based offerings. Recent UK plant-based releases include oat milk, cake and two wraps in the UK.

During a shareholder meeting in March Starbucks COO Rosalind Brewer said: “We have a line that we’d love to share with our customers later this year, so it is in our plans.

“We know our customers ask us that repeatedly, and we’ll be responding.”

Dream Popswill be available online to US consumers from July 15
