Starbucks is offering two new Frappuccino creations, and they're looking as creative and delicious as ever!
Delish reports that two new Frappuccino flavors coming in the summer of 2017 will include the Pop'zel Coffee Frappuccino and the Roasted Marshmallow S'mores Frappuccino. These drinks will be available for a limited time in the Philippines, starting April 18. I know, it's a bit of a bummer that the drinks aren't available everywhere, but let's still take a second to enjoy what they're bringing to the table.
The Pop'zel Coffee Frappuccino features popcorn and pretzel syrup, is topped with whipped cream (of course) and caramel popcorn and salted pretzel. If you aren't sure whether you're craving something salty or sweet, or if you are craving both, this drink is perfect for you.
The Roasted Marshmallow S'mores Frappuccino is a vanilla-flavored drink, and it's layered with marshmallow whipped cream, chocolate sauce and graham cracker crumbles. On top of the whipped cream, more graham cracker crumbles are added for a nice finish.
Delish seems to suspect that the Pop'zel Coffee Frappuccino is the Starbucks response to a trend currently in Australia for the Freakshake and Freak-accino. These drinks are huge milkshakes and cappuccinos blended and topped with basically everything delicious that you can think of. Throw in cake and brownies and pretzels and anything else your heart desires. Make sure it overloads the cup, and then you have a freakshake. Check it out:
My only question here is that if the new Starbucks drinks are an answer to these freaky drinks, why are the Starbucks drinks available only in the Philippines? Shouldn't they be available in Australia? Scratch that, I have more than one question. Why isn't any of this trending in the U.S.?
I guess on this side of the map, we'll just have to hope that Starbucks brings back our lovely S'mores Frappuccino. At least we can find some indulgent satisfaction in that.
