Sure, there are times when we want a freshly-made, in-house Frappuccino from Starbucks. But most days, we want our coffee fix fast, and that means grabbing it on our way to work, stocking up on bottled drinks from the grocery store, or making a batch of cold-brew in bulk on the weekends.
For those who prefer to grab a bottle of iced coffee and go, say hello to Starbucks’ newest bottled iced beverage: the ready-to-drink Salted Caramel Mocha Iced Latte. The limited-edition bottles are currently rolling out in grocery stores nationwide, and retail for $2.79 each. Each 14 fl. oz bottle contains 250 calories, 4.5 grams of fat, 38 grams of sugar, and 150 milligrams of caffeine. So, while certainly not the healthiest option, they are convenient for anyone who loves iced Starbucks lattes.

The drink is inspired by the Salted Caramel Mocha served seasonally at Starbucks stores. Due to its popularity, the company decided to roll out this ready-to-drink version. It features “cocoa and toffee notes intertwined with hints of sea salt, bold espresso and creamy milk,” according to a statement. The company plans to roll out other limited-edition iced latte flavors throughout the year.
