Nestlé, Starbucks broaden At Home product line with the launch of Starbucks Signature Chocolate
Nestlé and Starbucks just expanded their collaboration by releasing a new product under their At Home coffee range. They announced the launch of the new Starbucks Signature Chocolate last weekend.
According to Food Bev, the latest product lineup under Nestlé and Starbucks’ team-up offers two flavors and these are the Starbucks Signature Chocolate 42% and the Starbucks Signature Chocolate Salted Caramel. The former was described as a drink featuring a combination of cocoa beans and giving a smooth chocolate taste while the latter is a hot chocolate beverage where the cocoa is layered with the rich salted caramel flavor.
These new drinks are still considered part of the autumn offerings where customers can enjoy their rich flavors while cozying up at home. These can also be mixed with milk or dairy alternatives for vegan choco drinkers.
"We are very excited to launch these new additions under the iconic Starbucks brand to be enjoyed at home,” Nestlé UK’s brand manager, Kelly Fleetwood, said in a press release. “These delicious indulgent-tasting hot chocolates are made with high quality cocoa certified by Rainforest Alliance, and we are confident they will be a big hit not only amongst Starbucks lovers."
This new collaborative product of Nestlé and Starbucks will hit the market in the United Kingdom on Sept. 12 and it will be available in Sainsbury's from this date. On the other hand, Signature Chocolate 42% and the Starbucks Signature Chocolate Salted Caramel will be coming to Asda groceries in the U.K. starting Sept. 18. It was mentioned that they will also be sold online.
Fans of Starbucks drinks can purchase the Signature Chocolate in a 330-gram tin for £4.25 while the Salted Caramel will be launched in a sachet form and will retail at £4.25 per 10-piece box of 22-gram packets.
Meanwhile, these new products are the result of Nestlé and Starbucks’ successful team up in the past three years through their Global Coffee Alliance project. The two also released ready-to-drink coffees to the market and they have been hit as well, not just in the U.K. but in the U.S. too.
