New Plant-Based Offerings from Starbucks

Starbucks Japan is adding a touch of sweetness to its menu with the launch of a new plant-based series, perfectly timed for the upcoming Valentine’s event. The star of this series is the Chocolate Rice-Flour Muffin (295 yen), a delightful treat that infuses the air with the irresistible aroma of chocolate.


Starbucks’ commitment to plant-based options ensures that these delectable offerings feature plant-based ingredients in its main ingredients without animal-derived components. However, it’s worth noting that these treats are not exclusively tailored for those strictly adhering to a vegan or vegetarian diet, as clarified by the company.

The subtle and gentle chocolate flavor is achieved by combining chocolate and almond milk in the batter, resulting in a treat that’s not overly sweet.

Crafted with care, this muffin maintains its ideal texture – not overly moist, thanks to the use of rice flour, providing a satisfying bite with each mouthful.

What sets this muffin apart is the inclusion of chocolate chunks in both the batter and the topping, creating a visual and textural delight. These chocolate chunks serve as a perfect accent, enhancing both the appearance and the overall eating experience.

Designed with adults in mind, the muffin offers a sophisticated sweetness that doesn’t overwhelm the palate. It leaves a light aftertaste, striking the right balance for those who prefer a less sugary indulgence.

The careful balance of flavors and textures makes this Chocolate Rice-Flour Muffin a must-try for anyone seeking a delightful and plant-based treat from Starbucks.
