Starbucks’s Caramel Pretzel Popcorn Frappuccino is here to make all of your liquid-dessert dreams come true
Attention coffee lovers and dessert devourers! Good news — there’s a new drink to satisfy both cravings. The Starbucks Caramel Pretzel Popcorn Frappuccino is here, and it’s seriously going to make all of your liquid-dessert dreams come true. Just when it seemed the coffee chain couldn’t top the Christmas Tree Frappuccino, this new beverage piles on even more delicious snacks.
The recipe for the drink includes popcorn brittle, coffee, and Pop’zel, the company’s signature popcorn-meets-pretzel syrup. It’s topped with a generous amount of whipped cream, more Pop’zel drizzle, pieces of popcorn brittle, and whole pretzels, because honestly, why not? It’s basically an old-fashioned carnival, movie theatre, and baseball field concession stand snack rolled into one coffee drink, and it looks beyond yum.
Here’s the bad news: Starbucks’s Caramel Pretzel Popcorn Frappuccino is exclusive to Australia, so Frappuccino fans in the United States will have to improvise if they want to try this one.
According to Delish, some Starbucks secret-menu sleuths have found a way to make a similar beverage. If you ask your barista for a Toffee Nut Frappuccino with a caramel drizzle inside the cup and on the whipped cream, with a small shake of sea salt on top, it should taste pretty similar. Of course, it won’t have the brittle or pretzels, so in order to create the real deal Starbucks Caramel Pretzel Popcorn Frappuccino, Cracker Jacks and pretzels will need to be purchased separately.
In Australia, the drink is already the stuff of caffeine dreams. Fans on Instagram are sharing pics and showing off their coffee cups, and it looks like salty-sweet perfection. Can you ship Frappuccinos internationally? Asking for a friend.
