Starbucks took the Eggnog Latte off its menu and people are devastated

Are you sitting down? For some of you, this news might be as shocking as when McDonald’s removed the McPizza from menus. Starbucks has taken a holiday classic, the Eggnog Latte, out of the seasonal rotation this year.

That’s right folks. Earlier this week, the Seattle-based coffee chain revealed its entire holiday menu and new cups, and that’s when it was confirmed. It’s off the menu.

A representative for Starbucks told Dished Vancouver that the coffee chain is always “evaluating the items on its menu” and that it uses various criteria to determine these kinds of decisions.

“While the company no longer offers the Eggnog Latte, Starbucks partners (baristas) are happy to recommend an alternative holiday beverage or customization,” they told Dished Vancouver in an email.

Well, in true modern-day fashion, people are truly rattled by this news, and the internet is screaming out for help.

But it’s not just Twitter users that are airing their grievances online about the seasonal sip being discontinued; there are also several online petitions requesting the item be returned to its rightful place on the holiday lineup.

Naturally, a handful of Facebook groups have also popped up, one asking for people’s help in the “fight to bring back the Eggnog Latte.”

Looks like it’s an all-out battle for Starbucks lovers online right now. I wonder if a new Sugar Cookie Oat Latte will make them feel better…
