Select Starbucks locations in New York and New Jersey have been selected to test out Cholov Yisroel milk at their locations.
This is an effort to attract new customers with different kashrut needs to the ubiquitous coffee chain for their caffeine fix.
The Cholov Yisrael milk being used is Pride of the Farm Milk, certified by the Star K. Milk that is cholov stam will not be offered at any of these 10 locations, as they will be strictly CY.
The stores themselves will still not be certified kosher, but Rabbi Zvi Holland from the Star K is aware of the new changes that are now in place at these locations.
Locations include 4 in Brooklyn, 2 in the 5 Towns, and 4 in the Deal/Lakewood region of New Jersey. See map below.
NOTE: Since these stores are not actually certified kosher, there are non-kosher items and drinks sold in all of these shops, including all Frappucinos. Consult the CRC Kosher Guide to Starbucks Beverages here.
