  • Starbucks will put orders for 25 items and ingredients on hold, per an internal update.
  • Starbucks says it is experiencing temporary shortages and is apologizing to customers.
  • These changes will impact what drinks customers can order at certain stores that have run out.

Starbucks stores are facing shortages of more than two dozen products, and it means certain drinks might be unavailable at some stores for the foreseeable future.

Starbucks is putting orders for at least 25 items on "temporary hold" as of June 4 due to supply chain issues, according to an internal company update viewed by Insider. The list of items and ingredients includes popular items like hazelnut syrup, toffee nut syrup, chai tea bags, green iced tea, and other products.

Starbucks declined to comment specifically on the list of ingredients but has previously said ongoing product shortages are localized and not nationwide.


"We are experiencing temporary supply shortages of some of our products. Specific items will vary by market and store, and some stores will experience outages of various items at the same time. We apologize for the inconvenience, and are working quickly and closely with our supply chain vendors to restock items as soon as possible," a spokesperson previously told Insider in a phone call.
