It seems a number of Starbucks outlets across the country are facing shortages of certain ingredients, with supply chain issues getting worse.
In a company memo seen by Insider, Starbucks will be putting orders for at least 25 items on “temporary hold” from June 4 onwards.
The list contains some of the chain’s most popular drink ingredients, including hazelnut syrup, toffee nut syrup, chai tea bags, green iced tea, and more.
While Starbucks has declined to comment on the rumors making the rounds, the chain has said it is dealing with ingredient shortages, with specifics varying by location. At the moment, there’s no one single ingredient that’s unavailable nationwide.
Starbucks aficionados are worried their favorite drinks could possibly disappear from the menu in the coming weeks. In fact, some social media users have already been talking about being declined certain drinks at Starbucks outlets due to shortages.
As of now, the company will not be able to predict when certain ingredients will be restocked, so it may be pertinent to get your Starbucks fix as soon as possible before your favorite beverages are no longer available.
Hi, I apologize for the inconvenience! Some stores are seeing outages due to the overwhelming popularity on menu items, and constraints in the supply chain. Rest assure we are working as quickly as possible to get this issue resolved. Thank you so much for your patience. -Shay
