    When i drove out for Denver Coffeefest a few weeks ago... my only option was Starbucks. I decided to give this a shot and I have to say, it wasn't bad. As topher suggested, it was a lot of effort for little value. Basically its their cold brew coffee topped with this mixture from the blender. Although Cascara is the trendy word in coffee now... I couldn't perceive any flavor impact from the Cascara. It was simply sweetened whipped milk.

    If you look at the SWOT analysis of Starbucks, you see the following list of their key competitors within their marketplace. That should answer your question about any new products they introduce. An "ours is better" sort of invention to counter something that the other guy had success in launching.

    The following companies are the major competitors of Starbucks Corporation:

    Caribou Coffee Company, Inc. (Ticker: CBOU)
    Costa Coffee
    Dunkin' Brands Group, Inc. (Ticker: DNKN)
    International Coffee & Tea, LLC
    J.M. Smucker LLC
    McDonald's Corporation (Ticker: MCD)
    Mondelez International, Inc. (Ticker: MDLZ)
    Nestle USA, Inc.

    My apologies... That SWOT analysis is like 2 years old. Apparently Starbucks merged a portion of their product line with Nestle last month in a $7 billion deal.
