Starbucks’ ode to the end of summer: Two new Frappuccino flavors
Just when we thought we were out, they pulled us back in. Starbucks, how many frappuccinos can you even come up with in one season? Back in my day, I remember one, MAYBE two fun seasonal flavors coming out (if we were lucky!). This summer, Starbucks, you have truly outdone yourself (we won’t forget when you released six new Frapp flavors at once, or the S’mores Frapp which won over our hearts).
Well, the Taylor Swift of coffee shops is not going to let summer end without one more surprise. In honor of “the unofficial end of summer,” aka Labor Day, Starbucks has announced two more new frappuccino flavors to celebrate the season. Okay, okay, with no further ado, we’d like you to meet Blackberres & Creme and Strawberry Shortcake. These bad boys are limited time only, so you better take your end-of-the-day break and go try them out.
The Blackerries & Creme frappuccino is a delicious blend of blackberries (obviously), vanilla bean (yum), and milk (or soy or coconut milk!), and is finished off with whipped cream and a little bit of cinnamon dolce powder. TBH, the whipped cream is always the best part of a frappuccino and adding cinnamon dolce powder to it sounds like a dream come true.
The Strawberry Shortcake frappuccino is slightly different than the usual Strawberries & Creme one because there is HAZELNUT SYRUP IN IT, which means it’s going to taste like real shortcake. Can you imagine anything more summery than strawberry shortcake? Putting a straw in something always makes it that much better, so kudos, Bux. We’re here for this flavor.
Get these guys while you can. The flavors are limited edition and will magically disappear on September 7th when the world goes full on all pumpkin errything.
