Starbucks has stepped just stepped into one of the fruit world’s biggest controversies, because cantaloupe might be the greatest divider in all of produce history. Some think the peachy-pink melon just fruit salad filler, while others know that a perfectly ripe cantaloupe can be one of the tastiest things you’ll ever put in your mouth.

That said, we think that people from both camps can get on board with the newest frozen drink from Starbucks: the Cantaloupe Melon and Cream Frappuccino. The brand new and beautiful frappuccino is layered with a cantaloupe and melon fruit blend and panna cotta, which is like an Italian cream custard.

The only drawback—and we hate to tell you this—is that you can only get it in Japan, and only until May 17. Why do you do this to us, Starbucks??

The Cantaloupe Melon and Cream Frappuccino joins a long line of delicious Starbucks treats that can only be found outside the U.S. We’re missing out on Orange Chocolate Mochas in Jan, Red Bean Green Tea from China, and Strawberry Cheescake from Australia. Not to mention the biggest loss of all: Caramel Flan Frapp, why will you not hop that transpacific flight for us??

You know what they say: The frapps are always sweeter on the other side—of the world.

At least we can all enjoy the photos of the amazingly over-the-top fashion show that Starbucks Japan put on to launch the new drink. Spoiler alert: There’s lots of face paint.
