Studio Ghibli special menu descends on Starbucks

This July, a special Studio Ghibli-themed menu has arrived at Starbucks locations across the country.

Taking inspiration from the Japanese animation studio, the drinks company has created a number of special drinks based on the Japanese studio’s films.

Take a look at the Ponyo-themed drink one happy customer enjoyed below:

A look over the menu

There are seven options available on the Starbucks Studio Ghibli-themed menu. Here are the options available for purchase this summer:

  • Howl’s Moving Castle: Floral lemonade with elderberry
  • Spirited Away: White mocha Frappuccino with cherry blossom and candy
  • Ponyo: Blended strawberry acai with cherry
  • Princess Mononoke: Dark iced chai
  • Jiji’s: Taro latte
  • Kiki’s: Dark chocolate red velvet Frappuccino
  • My Neighbour Totoro: Black sesame latte with matcha foam

Unfortunately the Studio Ghibli menu is not available at all Starbucks

A Starbucks barista added a comment on the above TikTok video, posted by TravelMomoirs, that the Studio Ghibli menu is not available at all locations.

They commented: “Unfortunately no, this is not at all Starbucks but it seems it’s at some Barnes and Noble Starbucks.”

For San Diegans, you’re in luck, as the special menu is confirmed to be available in the city’s Starbucks. Barnes and Noble serve Starbucks, although it is up to the store’s discretion what they serve. So, don’t get your hopes up to head to your local B&N to find the Studio Ghibli menu.

What other special drinks have Starbucks made?

Even if you can’t make it to a Starbucks location serving up the Studio Ghibli menu, you can always find a way to get your hands on a special drink from the coffee franchise.

If you haven’t come across Starbucks’ special menu yet, then prepare yourself to change your go-to order from here on out.

Starbucks has a secret menu that means you can get your hands on a number of personalised drinks from a cinnamon roll latte to a Baby Yoga cold brew.
