Starbucks recently rolled out its new olive oil-based drinks along with a new springtime cold brew flavor. The oil-infused Oleato drinks are now available in select cities across the U.S., including Chicago, Seattle and New York.
The new addition to the menu was inspired by Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz’s recent trip to Sicily. There he first learned of the Mediterranean custom of taking a spoonful of olive oil each day. “I was absolutely stunned at the unique flavor and texture created when the Partanna extra virgin olive oil was infused into Starbucks coffee,” he said in a statement. “In both hot and cold coffee beverages, what it produced was an unexpected, velvety, buttery flavor that enhanced the coffee and lingers beautifully on the palate.”
