Complete List Of Starbucks Syrup Flavors (Updated For 2023)

Sugar, spice, and everything nice… That's always my first thought about all the syrup flavors at Starbucks!

If you're planning to create a secret menu drink or transform your usual order at this coffee shop, knowing all the flavored syrups Starbucks offers can make your life a breeze.

Let's take that one step further, as this article ranks all the flavors from best to worst, so you don't have to lift a finger with your research.

Let's get right into them!

1. Brown Sugar Syrup

Although the brown sugar syrup was specifically made for the Iced Brown Sugar Oat Milk Shaken Espresso, it works with many other coffee-based drinks, especially those plain ones like iced coffee, cold brew, or simple brewed coffee.

Basically, brown sugar syrup is recommended for those looking for a caramelized flavor in their drink without the overwhelming sweetness you get from actual caramel syrup.

2. Toasted Vanilla Syrup

As one of the latest Starbucks syrups recently introduced, the jury is still out on toasted vanilla. For me, I already know that this is going to be the next big hit.

If it's your first time hearing about this syrup, you've probably encountered it in its original form: the Iced Toasted Vanilla Oat Milk Shaken Espresso.

This syrup was introduced to complement the rich and bitter flavor of Starbucks iced latte drinks.

Essentially, it makes iced espresso interesting without turning it into a dessert-like beverage.

Before you use it for customization, I suggest you order its original drink to understand how it differs from the regular Starbucks vanilla drink syrup.

Some say it's a bit too floral and has a perfume-like taste, but I think that you should try it out before making any rash decision.

3. Sugar Cookie Syrup (Seasonal)

As its name implies, this flavored syrup is based on the holiday favorite, sugar cookies.

It has a buttery sweet flavoring that can blend well in any coffee drink, especially iced coffees and Frappuccinos.

Originally, it was used in the Sugar Cookie Latte, but as more and more people discover the decadent flavor of this syrup, it has been used in many secret menu recipes such as the Warm Sugar Cookie (white mocha hot chocolate, sugar cookie syrup, and hazelnut syrup).

4. Hazelnut Syrup

Who doesn’t love the flavor of hazelnut? This sweet, nutty flavor can complement many flavors, especially chocolate--Nutella, am I right? The hazelnut syrup is one of the most versatile Starbucks syrups.

First, you can mix it with any coffee-based drink, even brewed coffee. On top of that, it works well with Starbucks hot chocolate drinks and other chocolate flavorings like the mocha sauce.

It is also an excellent addition to Frappuccinos, especially if you're craving something Nutella-like. Oh, did I also mention you can add it to chai tea?

Wait, I'm not yet done. Of course, you can add this to any of your favorite drinks, but do you know that you can also buy bottled Starbucks hazelnut drink syrup you can use at home?

Yep, you’ve read that right. No wonder it’s one of the best Starbucks syrups.

5. Cane Sugar Syrup

This Starbucks-flavored syrup is made from turbinado cane sugar, which is a minimally processed sugar.

It has a more raw flavor than the other Starbucks flavor syrups, like classic and caramel syrups. The taste is quite similar to brown sugar--caramel-y but not too sweet.

This is why it's perfect for all kinds of beverages, including shaken iced teas, hot teas, iced coffees, and others, like the Candy Cane Frappuccino.

Many people think that this is a healthier alternative than other Starbucks syrups because it is less sweet, but don't be fooled.

In terms of chemical composition, it has sucrose, the same as other syrups.[1] In other words, nutritionally speaking, it’s basically liquid sugar.

6. Vanilla Syrup

This syrup doesn't need any fancy introduction. It's probably the most popular syrup on the Starbucks menu.

Vanilla syrup is often seen in drinks like Vanilla Latte, Vanilla Bean Creme Frappuccino, Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold brew, London Fog Tea Latte, and Blonde Vanilla Latte.

It’s also a versatile flavored syrup and can complement any hot and iced Starbucks coffee beverage.

Some have even experimented with adding it to an iced tea to create a unique flavor.

Starbucks Vanilla Sweet Cream

7. Caramel Syrup

Are you obsessed with caramel flavor? If so, the Starbucks caramel drink syrup is for you. This is one of the best Starbucks syrups, thanks to its delicious taste that can blend well in any type of beverage.

Are you looking for something simple? A Caramel Frappuccino is for you. Into hot drinks? Why not try the Caramel Macchiato? Something fruity?

The Raspberry Caramel Macchiato is the perfect caramel syrup and raspberry syrup-based drink.

Apart from those, bottled Starbucks caramel syrup is also available for purchase. You can use this flavored syrup at home anytime you'd like.

8. Raspberry Syrup (Discontinued)

Hold onto your mugs because Starbucks raspberry syrup is slowly disappearing from many stores. Starbucks is planning to discontinue this beloved syrup flavor.[2]

I'm hoping Starbucks realizes how many customers will be saddened by the disappearance of this popular flavor and change their mind.

So, let's raise our cups and eagerly await the triumphant return of this tangy-sweet delight! 

While this syrup can be really sweet, if added to the right flavored drinks, it can be perfect. It's popularly added to Iced Raspberry latte and Cotton Candy Frappuccino (secret menu drink).

However, you can add raspberry syrup to any beverage, especially tea-based drinks like green tea and iced teas.

Raspberry Iced Tea

9. Classic Syrup

No big explanation is needed, as many of you are probably familiar with this.

The classic syrup is one of the first Starbucks syrups introduced and is mainly used to sweeten any beverage on the Starbucks menu.

For example, this is used in the original recipe of Iced Coffees and Iced Shaken Espressos.

So basically, if you ask for something sweetened and don’t really specify what you want, this is more likely what the syrup baristas would add.

10. Cinnamon Dolce Syrup

If you want something sweet with a little kick, the cinnamon dolce syrup is the one for you.

It was first introduced as one of the seasonal syrups in the mid-2000s, but then quickly became popular and a permanent menu item because of its delicious flavor.

This syrup is made for Cinnamon Dolce Latte but was quickly adopted in many secret menu drinks like Cinnamon Roll Frappuccino and White Chocolate Cinnamon Chai Latte.

The cinnamon dolce syrup gives any Starbucks drink the spiced-sweet kick in just a few pumps.

No wonder it became available all year round instead of being one of the seasonal offerings.

11. Chestnut Praline Syrup (Seasonal)

One of the best seasonal syrups for me is chestnut praline syrup.

Unlike other Starbucks syrups that taste like they’re going to give you a sugar rush, this one has the perfect sweetness you’ll enjoy.

It’s usually added to Chestnut Praline Latte, a holiday offering, but it can be used to customize different hot and iced drinks.

Iced Chestnut Praline Latte

12. Toffee Nut Syrup

The Starbucks toffee nut syrup will be your new favorite if you want something nutty with some brown sugar undertones.

Usually added in Toffee Mocha Macchiato, the toffee nut syrup can also blend well in many other drinks like the Vanilla Pumpkin Nut Latte and Vanilla Pumpkin Nut Latte (made with coconut milk!).

You can even add toffee nut syrup to a plain cold brew and iced coffee if you want a great flavor in your plain coffee.

13. Peppermint Syrup

Mint chocolate, anyone? If you’re a fan of this delectable concoction, this seasonal syrup is for you.

First introduced in the Peppermint Mocha and Iced Peppermint Mocha, the Starbucks peppermint drink syrup has become an instant crowd favorite.

This syrup is also found in other popular holiday drinks like Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha and Peppermint Mocha Frappuccino.

Peppermint syrup is also a favorite ingredient in many secret menu drinks like Peppermint Chocolate Chip Frappuccino and Holly Jolly Latte.

Iced Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha

14. Irish Cream Syrup (Seasonal)

Are you looking for a flavored syrup that has a creamy, nutty with a hint of chocolate and vanilla flavor? Look no further because the Irish cream syrup is here.

While it’s non-alcoholic, it still gives off a boozy Irish cream taste, thanks to the hint of mint flavor in this syrup.

It’s usually found in Irish Cream Cold Brew but can be added to a wide array of old and new drinks on the menu. Just remember this is a seasonal syrup, so it's not available all year- round.

15. Peach Syrup

Not a fan of coffee? Then fruity-flavored Starbucks syrups, like this one, are for you. It’s a great addition to any tea-based drink.

It’s usually seen on Peach Green Tea Lemonade, but you can always request it on any teas you like. It's perfect in lemonades too!

Iced Peach Green Tea Lemonade

16. Mango Syrup

As one of the most refreshing Starbucks flavor syrups, the Starbucks mango drink syrup is an excellent complement to teas and lemonade.

It's also a trendy secret menu ingredient, thanks to the infamous Mango Frappuccino drink, which is a Vanilla Bean Frappuccino with mango syrup.

If you want something light, the Mango Black Tea Lemonade is the drink for you.

17. Apple Brown Sugar Syrup (Seasonal)

The flavor of apple pie and caramel in one syrup? A match made in heaven.

The apple brown sugar syrup was first introduced in the Apple Crisp Macchiato, which surprised many coffee lovers because of this unusual flavor combo.

If you want a cold beverage, you can enjoy this syrup in an Apple Crisp Frappuccino. One thing to note, this is a seasonal syrup and is only available for a limited period (boo!).

18. Pumpkin Spice Syrup (Seasonal)

Do I even need to introduce this syrup?

The pumpkin spice syrup is definitely a crowd favorite and can be found in Pumpkin Spice Latte.

I’m not much of a fan of this popular Starbucks fall drink, but it doesn't mean it’s not good.

19. Honey Blend Syrup

If you’re looking for a more naturally flavored syrup, the honey-blend syrup is a pretty good choice.

As you might have guessed, it’s made of honey with other ingredients.

This syrup is mostly used in Breakfast Tea Latte and Royal English Tea.

20. Funnel Cake Syrup (Seasonal)

Are you a fan of dessert drinks? If so, the funnel cake syrup is a great syrup. This is first found in Strawberry Funnel Cake Frappuccino, which for me, is super sweet.

Still, it's a syrup worth exploring if you have a sweet tooth. Just remember, it's a seasonal flavor and won't be available all year round.

Bonus: Sugar-Free Syrup Flavors

Can't consume sugar? No problem! Starbucks offers sugar-free syrup flavors. However, there are only two sugar-free versions: sugar-free vanilla syrup and sugar-free cinnamon dolce syrup.

Unfortunately, the coffee shop still hasn’t released many sugar-free syrups, but at least there is a Starbucks sugar-free option for you.

  1. Why don’t starbucks have coconut flavor? I haven’t been to a starbucks since they discontinued coconut.

  2. Hi Angela! Unfortunately, it does seem like many Starbucks are starting to do away with the Raspberry syrup. It was one of my favorites, and I loved how versatile it was. I added it to so many drinks from iced coffee to tea to refreshers.

  3. I posted a comment about the phasing out of Raspberry Syrup BEFORE reading these other postings………….WHY? WHY? WHY? When so many of us depend on it. Seems like a very bad business decision Mr. Bucks

  4. I have been told by 2 local Starbucks that the raspberry syrup has been discontinued. Is this true – SO SAD

  5. Hi Gary! It looks like Starbucks Raspberry syrup was in short supply during the pandemic and many stores could not stock it. Currently, many Starbucks stores are starting to phase out this syrup. Unfortunately, your local store seems to be ahead on this action. Starbucks raspberry syrup will be sorely missed!

  6. I have been using raspberry syrup in my coffee for a couple years now, (the only reason I go to starbucks). A few weeks ago I ordered at my local Starbucks ( citrus heights ,CA) and they said raspberry is discontinued. Is that right ?
