(WXIA) - A sure sign of the holidays approaching is the launch of gingerbread latte and eggnog lattes showing up at Starbucks.
The 2013 premiere of the chain's sought-after holiday drinks is November 1.
This year, the gingerbread latte has a new recipe that includes spice-flavored whipped cream and a real molasses drizzle. Along with the gingerbread latte and the eggnog latte, Starbucks is bringing out their caramel brulee latte and their legendary peppermint mocha drinks.
The eggnog latte has been in the annual line-up since 1986. While the caramel brulee latte joined the menu in 2009.
Other chains' holiday offerings are expected to show up on menus and shelves over the next few weeks.
