The Secret Is Out - Introducing Starbucks Canada's 2013 Line-Up of 
Barista-made Frappuccino® Blended Beverages You Won't Find on the Menu 
TORONTO, June 13, 2013 /CNW/ - For the first time, Starbucks Canada today is 
revealing a selection of the tastiest, unpublished barista- created 
Frappuccino® blended beverages, made especially for the 2013 Canadian summer. 
"Our baristas have always applied their artistry to classic Starbucks® 
beverages," says Kevin Reid, director, Beverages, Starbucks Canada. "Invented 
by those who know best what tickles Canadian taste buds, Starbucks Canadian 
baristas from St. John, New Brunswick to Saanich B.C. have been creating 
custom blended beverages to perfection, taking the iconic Starbucks® 
Frappuccino® beverage to new delicious heights." 
Joining more than 36,000 custom combinations, Starbucks Canada introduces the 
top barista Frappuccino® blended beverage creations for 2013*: 


    --  Starbucks® café in Saanich, B.C. creates a summer version of
        holiday beverage, Peppermint Mocha Latte, with the Peppermint
        Green Tea Frappuccino® blended beverage with Java chips. This
        minty twist on a West-Coast favourite - the Tazo® Green Tea
        Frappuccino® blended beverage - features chocolate chips and
        peppermint syrup in place of classic syrup.
    --  Toronto's Hudson Bay Centre Starbucks® Café gives bananas the
        Bollywood treatment creating a Soy No Whip Tazo® Chai
        Frappuccino®, blended beverage with half a banana and topped
        with sprinkled cinnamon - a spice-filled, dairy-free
        Frappuccino® beverage that amplifies Tazo® Chai, one of
        Starbucks most popular teas.
    --  Starbucks® cafes in both St. John, New Brunswick, and at Avenue
        Road and Roe Avenue in Toronto, each put the Starbucks twist on
        a classic flavour combination with a Starbucks® Vanilla Bean
        Frappuccino® blended beverage with Java Chips, topped with
        whipped cream and cookie crumble - perfect for customers who
        prefer a coffee-free option - as well as a version for coffee
        lovers: a Starbucks® White Mocha Java Chip Frappuccino® blended
        beverage topped with whipped cream and cookie crumble -
        substituting White Mocha syrup for traditional Mocha syrup.
    --  Whitby, Ontario's Thickson and Nichol Starbucks® café
        replicates the flavours of one of its best-selling pastries 
        with the One pump White Mocha, one pump Vanilla, Java Chip
        Frappuccino® blended with banana - the flavour combination
        tastes just like the Starbucks® Banana Chocolate Chip Coffee
        Cake, a customer favourite at this store.

"Personalizing beverages is an important part of the Starbucks experience," 
says Reid. "Our baristas are happy to help customers reimagine their own 
classic Frappuccino® blended beverage the same way they customize their 
favourite Starbucks® espresso beverages."

Starbucks customers are invited to try the 2013 selection of Canadian 
barista-made Frappuccino® blended beverage creations at stores across the 
country. In addition, customers can select from more than 10 Frappuccino® 
blended beverages listed on the Starbucks menu including the new Caramel 
Ribbon Crunch Frappuccino®blended beverage and the most popular 
limited-time Frappuccino® blended beverage of all time, Mocha Cookie 
Crumble.Customers can also customize their Frappuccino® blended beverage to 
their lifestyle and taste preferences by selecting from a variety of milks, 
choosing the intensity of coffee, and adding or substituting syrups or 
toppings.
