Starbucks has been rolling out new menu items faster than Oreo can release limited-edition flavors this year, which - if you've been keeping tabs on its Dunkin' Mocha Latte, Waffles & Syrup, and even fizzling "Firework" varieties - is really saying something. Not long after adding the Pink and Ombre Pink Drinks to its permanent menu, and dropping two take-me-to-the-tropics creme Frappuccinos, the coffee company's making several seasonal changes to its lineup.

They're Offering A Freebie This Friday.
First, the 'Bucks is getting its Cascara Latte ready for beach season, releasing an Iced Cascara Coconut Milk Latte. It's an espresso drink made with coconut milk, served over ice, with Cascara syrup - AKA an extract from coffee cherries. (It's subtly sweet, with a slight maple, brown sugar-y flavor, according to a Starbucks rep.)
Second, if you stop by Starbucks between 1 and 2 p.m. this Friday, July 14, you can score a free tall Teavana Shaken Iced Tea Infusion. This isn't a BOGO. There's no promo code or secret password to know - just walk in, request the drink, and get it free and clear, the representative said. The deal is limited to its new Shaken Iced Tea Infusions - Pineapple Black Tea, Strawberry Green Tea, and Peach Citrus Tea – at participating stores in the U.S. and Canada.
They're Stepping Up Their Breakfast And Lunch Game.
Starbucks is getting in on the Buddha Bowl/Power Bowl trend with two new dishes: the Chicken & Quinoa Protein Bowl and the Vegan Lentils & Vegetables Protein Bowl. The first features grilled white meat chicken, lettuce, quinoa, tomatoes, roasted corn, black beans, jicama, cotija cheese, and a side of tomato chili vinaigrette. The vegan bowl is a mix of brown rice, roasted tomatoes, sunflower seeds, and butternut squash. It's served with lemon-tahini dressing. Each clocks in at more than 23 grams of protein.
The chain's also launching a Seared Steak, Egg and Tomatillo Wrap, which is essentially a breakfast burrito stuffed with steak, scrambled eggs, caramelized onions, and tomatillo salsa.
Even The Bakery Case Is Getting A Summery Upgrade.
Two twists on whoopie pies - vanilla bean and raspberry - will start popping up in stores, as well as a strawberry cake pop.
