Mocha sauce at Starbucks is vegan as far as I am aware.

Every source I've seen says the soy mocha is okay. I think you may have encountered a renegade barista:)

It's definitely vegan. It's in the hot cocoa, which is vegan when made soy/nowhip/nodrizzle.

I'll double check. The barista I always see in the morning is usually really great about helping suss out the veganness of things and suggesting alternatives. It could have been a different reason.

Just a heads up that the choco drizzle is vegan, it's just the mocha syrup in a squeeze bottle.

Mocha sauce is vegan, including the drizzle. (I work for Starbucks.)

Who's got the word on the new Hazelnut Macchiato? It's described as "freshly steamed milk with vanilla syrup, marked with espresso and finished with hazelnut drizzle." So I think the only questionable thing is the drizzle? If you put it in the calculator here with soy milk it comes up with 0 mg cholesterol, so I'm hopeful.

Ha! I was just wondering about this, too! But then I always just get my soy misto and move on.

Ha. I now feel much better about how much I spend at Starbucks.... As I sit drinking an overpriced soy green tea latte at Starbucks.

My first thought was "Oh good, a lower calorie mocha" followed immediately by "It's probably gross...."

If you are already used to the flavour of sugar-free items, you'll probably like it. It's not gross, though it does have a splenda-y aftertaste. I don't like syrup in my drinks in the first place though, so I'm not necessarily the best person to judge the flavour.

I think it's alright.... but I don't hate all things sugar-free. I would get it in the peppermint mocha and I think there's enough other stuff going on for it to not be too obvious.

A friend asked this on fb and someone who works there said the hazelnut drizzle has milk. I was glad to see that before I knew it existed, because I would've gotten my hopes up too!

All of the syrups except for white chocolate, chai (honey), caramel drizzle, pumpkin and hazelnut drizzle are vegan.

Last time I read the carton, it was vegan, but I distinctly recall it having said honey a few years ago. I wonder if they changed it a while back? I don't remember that happening though..

Woah, there's a possibility that the Chai is now vegan? That would rock my world. I may ask the kind baristas at ye local Starbucks to show me the carton....

For the record, I definitely haven't looked in the last couple years, because I never drink it myself, and I'm now on leave. Cross your fingers? I hope it is.

ETA: Okay, I googled it, and it looks like it does have honey. : (
