Starbucks to Introduce New S’mores Frappuccino Blended Beverage
Apr 17 15
On April 28, 2015 Starbucks will introduce a new Frappuccino Blended beverage – the S’mores Frappuccino. The layered beverage starts with marshmallow-infused whipped cream and milk chocolate sauce; adds a creamy blend of graham, coffee, milk and ice; and is finished off with marshmallow whipped cream and a graham cracker crumble. For those times when customers are unable to get to a Starbucks store for the handcrafted beverage, perhaps because they’re camping, a new Bottled Frappuccino S’mores flavor is available in single serve glass bottles from where groceries are sold. In addition, a customer favorite returns later this month - Caramel Ribbon Crunch Frappuccino. This beverage is a blend of caramel syrup with Frappuccino roast coffee, milk and ice. It’s topped with a layer of new dark caramel sauce, whipped cream, caramel drizzle and crunchy caramel sugar topping. Available for a limited time, customers can enjoy these two delicious flavors at participating Starbucks stores, or enjoy one of 36,000 different combinations of their own Frappuccino blended beverage.
