Cheers to Seasonal Drink Trends

  • The popularity of seasonal drinks remains high with 43% of consumers interested in purchasing a seasonal coffee drink this year.1

  • The lead flavors for seasonal drinks still tend to be traditional – Pumpkin Spice in the fall and Gingerbread & Peppermint in the winter.

  • Foodservice operators can also look to new trending flavors and applications to deliver signature drinks that will differentiate from the traditional offerings and sustain customer interest through the fall and winter.


Start a New Holiday Tradition

  • Caramels and nuts have long been popular ingredients in holiday baking – moreover candied nut flavors like Chestnut Praline and Maple Pecan have continued to pop up more in seasonal drinks.

  • Cinnamon continues to be the most prominent holiday spice but non-traditional spice flavors like Chile and Anise have emerged to complement traditional seasonal flavors.

  • Baked flavors like Snickerdoodle and Cheesecake remain menu mainstays for their ability to successfully transition past the holiday season.

  • Offering a cold drink promotion during the fall and winter is a great way to drive sales in the afternoon daypart – cold brew’s smooth taste & texture provides a perfect palette to showcase holiday flavors.


Holiday Garnish Ideas

  • Candy – Candy canes (whole or crushed), Chocolate shavings, M&M’s® red and green, Toffee chips

  • Cookie Crumbles – Gingersnap, Graham cracker, Shortbread
