Valentine’s Day in Japan is one big chocolate-gifting session, so it makes sense that any seasonal treats released at this time will be a chocoholic’s dream.

One coffee shop sure to get in on the romantic festivities is Starbucks. They have become known for their various, limited-time-only beverages, which celebrate different holidays and occasions. The Valentine's Day offerings for this year have just been revealed, and the lineup includes not just one, but three chocolate-filled delights.

The first drink is a ‘Triple Nama Chocolate Frappuccino’. ‘Nama chocolate’ is a mix of chocolate and cream, like the rich and velvety filling of a truffle, a fitting flavour for Valentine's Day. This super chocolatey beverage even looks perfect for the season with a gradient of chocolate created by the different components. There’s nama chocolate whipped cream, a chocolate base, and nama chocolate sauce.

If ‘triple’ chocolate seems a bit full on, there’s also the ‘Double Nama Chocolate Mocha’. This one’s a hot option, a nice choice for the current chilly weather. The chocolate works in harmony with the espresso, steamed milk and nama chocolate whipped cream. The drink is finished off with chocolate flakes and chocolate sauce.

The chocofest doesn’t stop there, as the final drink is a ‘Baked & Creamy Nama White Chocolate Frappuccino’. The beverage combines white nama chocolate and baked white chocolate. To bring out the sweetness even more, the white chocolate sauce contains coffee as an extra ingredient.

The ‘Triple Nama Chocolate Frappuccino’ and ‘Double Nama Chocolate Mocha’ will both be going on sale from 19th January, while the ‘Baked & Creamy Nama White Chocolate Frappuccino’ will appear from 26th January. The whole lot will be around until 14th February in branches of Starbucks all over Japan.
