Why is Brown Sugar Oatmilk so Popular

Plant-based foodies everywhere rejoiced because Starbucks has finally introduced oat milk to its menu.

While Oatmilk has been gaining popularity among consumers, it had not made it into the biggest retailer in the coffee game.

Lookout almond and coconut milk, there is a new kid on the block and it tastes just like heaven.

Oatmilk is vegan, gluten-free, and dairy-free and just as the name suggests, made from oats.

Starbucks has partnered with the brand Oatly, one of the firsts in the oat milk game, to provide delicious creamy oat milk for Starbucks newest menu items.

Oatly’s milk is made from enzymatic degradation, a big scientific world that means oats are broken down and then separated, leaving behind the texture but keeping all the nutrients and fiber.

Oatmilk is smooth and creamy, which is one of the reasons why the Iced Brown Sugar Oatmilk Shaken Espresso is so yummy. Oatly’s oat milk, blended with brewed espresso, Brown sugar syrup, and a touch of cinnamon made us this dreamy concoction.

This tasty drink packs a punch sure to give you the energy you need to start your day. With its brewed blonde espresso you can have all the yummy flavor plus the caffeine to fuel your morning.

Fun fact: blonde roast is more caffeinated than dark roast

There is 170 mg of caffeine in a tall, 255 mg in a grande, and 340 mg in a Venti. Compared to frappuccinos, the Iced Brown Sugar Oatmilk Shaken Espresso isn’t actually that many calories.

Just 170 for a Venti and 90 for a tall. So, you can feel like you are drinking the smoothest, most delectable treat, but not feel too guilty about it.

Is Brown Sugar Oatmilk sweet?

While there is a mixed review on the sweetness factor, the answer is yes, but not too sweet.

If you like your coffee black but occasionally spice things up with a sweet drink then, the Iced Brown Sugar Oatmilk Shaken Espresso is for you.

It has a strong coffee flavor with a delicious sweetness that follows. The oat milk ties everything together and makes it so creamy.

The cherry-on-top is the cinnamon which gives it that rich earthy, warm flavor even though it is iced.

Some say it is bitter because the coffee flavor is so strong. Others, are just not into the oat milk and prefer almond milk instead ( always available to substitute).

A lot of people are calling it a breakfast drink, which might have to do with the combination of cinnamon, oat milk, and coffee.

Mostly the reviews are positive and people, in general, are loving this drink, probably one of the reasons it was selling out everywhere.

One thing that everyone can pretty much agree on, it’s worth a try at least once.

How Much is Brown Sugar Oatmilk?

While this drink is usually described as pretty with its layers of color, it does come with a pretty price tag as well.

Ranking high on Starbucks price range. A tall Iced Brown Sugar Oatmilk Shaken Espresso will cost you roughly $5.50 for a grande depending on location.

So, the question is, is it worth the money? That’s why a lot of people have taken to Tick Tok to show you how you can make your copycat recipe at home.

Honestly, it is not that hard and doesn’t require a lot of ingredients. If that price tag doesn’t scare you then drink up. If you are looking for a bargain, try making your version at home.

How do you order Brown Sugar Oatmilk?

The easiest way to order with a click or a button is using the Starbucks app or you can also order in person.

You can choose the drink as-is or choose to switch things up, add an extra pump of brown sugar syrup, or another shot of espresso.

The choice is yours when it comes to customizing your drink, but remember add-ons usually come at a price.

You’ll have to wait a while though because if you try to order you might be unsuccessful. The drink is currently “temporarily” unavailable at many locations.

When Will Brown Sugar Oatmilk be Available Again?

Due to the drink’s popularity and fame thanks to social media and word of mouth there is now a shortage of oat milk at many Starbucks locations.

While oat milk can be substituted with a variety of kinds of milk Starbucks has to offer. The Oatmilk is an essential ingredient in making Starbuck’s newest beverage what it is.

While some locations still have oat milk in inventory, many do not, which has caused Starbucks to withdraw the Oatmilk as an available option on the menu.

So far all we know is that the shortage is not expected to be forever and just temporary, but there has been no word yet as to when oat milk supplies at Starbucks will be back.

If you are patiently waiting to try the delicious drink you can always check with your local Starbucks to see if it is still available or keep checking the Starbucks website for the oat milk option to become available again.
