Starbucks Unveils 6 New Frappuccino Flavors, But They’re Not All Worth Sticking Around For Long
Move over S’mores Frappuccino — there’s a new flavor in town. Make that six new flavors, actually.
In sweet celebration of the Frappuccino turning 20 years old, Starbucks unveiled six delicious new flavors nationwide on Monday: Caramel Cocoa Cluster, Cinnamon Roll, Cotton Candy, Cupcake, Lemon Bar and Red Velvet Cake. The first two new flavors are made with coffee, while the others are crème-based and don’t contain coffee at all.
