This summer is looking tasty at Starbucks, as the coffee chain has launched two new Frappuccino flavors.
The weather is finally getting warmer and summer appears to be right around the corner. Nothing says "summer" like a sweet, cold, blended bevvy. Starbucks is helping kick of the season by giving coffee lovers two amazing new Frappuccino flavors. Triple Mocha Frapp and The Ultra Caramel, can now be found at the coffee giant.
Each of the new flavors starts with a delicious whipped cream at the base. Yes, Starbucks is switching it up from the usual Frappuccino flavor at the bottom. The cream is infused with a cold brew, dark caramel sauce, and white chocolate mocha sauce. From there, the two drinks become quite different.
The Triple Mocha Frapp has a layer of dark mocha sauce, and then that's topped with a standard mocha Frappuccino. It is then topped off with roasted coffee, milk, a layer of cream, and finally a dark mocha drizzle. Yum!
Next up, The Ultra Caramel has a layer of dark caramel sauce and which is then topped with a layer of dark caramel coffee Frappuccino. If that is not enough, the final touches include another layer of the sweet cold brew whipped cream, as well as a swirl of dark caramel.
Recently, Debbie Antonio, senior manager for Starbucks R&D, spoke out about both of the cool new flavors.
“Right away, you taste something different with the sweet cold brew whipped cream. Sip after sip, you get the blended coffee and the lighter whip with the dark caramel threaded all the way through,” she said regarding The Ultra Caramel Frappuccino.
She did not play favorites though; Antonio also had good things to say about the Triple Mocha Frapp.
“You can have mocha in every sip with Triple Mocha Frappuccino. You get both white chocolate and rich dark mocha, layered with cold brew whipped cream for contrast, texture,” she remarked.
The good news is these two cool flavors are not going anywhere. They are not simply here for summer. Starbucks has assured customers these two frapps will be on the menu long after those lazy hazy days of summer are gone. Both flavors are officially at your local Starbucks, so go check them out!
We can't wait to try them both! If you try either flavor, let us know what you think in the comments!
