20 Starbucks Items You Can't Get In The U.S.


Posted on

1. Coffee Jelly Frappuccino (Asia)

Starbucks customers in the Asia Pacific and Japan can order a coffee jelly Frap, filled with boba-like jelly cubes made from actual brewed coffee.

2. Pancakes (Europe)

In the U.K. and Scandinavia, you can order American-style pancakes for breakfast. (Sweden also offers crepe-style ones.)

3. Red Bean Frappuccino (Asia)

This icy treat, which you can find in stores in Singapore and elsewhere, comes with "whole kernels of premium red beans."


5. Lox on a Bagel (Germany)

Some stores in Europe offer salmon on a bagel as heartier morning fare.

6. VIA Cake

In some overseas locations, Starbucks sells a cake made from its instant coffee brand VIA. It looks scrumptious.

7. Meringue Brownie (Argentina)

A caramel and chocolate brownie topped with cute meringues.

8. Asian Dolce Latte

Starbucks describes this as "a latte with a unique Asian twist, Starbucks® signature Espresso layered with dolce sauce, softly steamed to perfection and topped with espresso whipped cream and a dusting of ground espresso." But alas, you can only get it — obviously — in Asia.


9. Coconut Pandan Roll (Thailand)

Kind of like a Swiss Roll, but clearly superior.

10. Cheesecake

This is Lemon Jazz Cheesecake, which you can get in India. Other stores across the globe offer blueberry and chocolate versions.

11. Yogurt Frappuccino

The U.K. and Greece have both gotten to experience a Frappuccino blended with real Greek yogurt.

12. Peanut Butter Panini (Indonesia)

Peanut butter, condensed milk, and panini bread? Yes, please.


13. Iced Coffee With Summer Jelly (Japan)

An on-the-go treat in Japan, iced coffee comes portable and mixed with grapefruit-flavored gel.

14. Lúcuma Frappuccino (Peru)

The lúcuma is a mango-like tropical fruit native to Peru, where you can enjoy it blended into a sweet frappe.

15. Pumpkin Pie (Japan)

We get the PSL; Japan right now has the superior PP.


17. Algarrobina Frappuccino (Peru)

A popular syrup made from the black carob tree, algarrobina can be found decorating Frapps in Peru.

18. Chocolate Star Cake (Ireland)

Ireland's Starbucks sell "a dark chocolate cake with a rich butter cream filling, velvety chocolate sauce and Belgian chocolate ganache, sprinkled with white chocolate & gold stars." Uh...YUM.

19. Charcoal Walnut Raisin Bun (Thailand)

A savory treat with a cool black hue.

20. Spam Bagel (Philippines)

Spam is a delicacy in the Philippines, and at Starbucks, you can find it with egg and cheddar on a bagel, breakfast sandwich-style.
