Starbucks began as a coffee chain, but it’s grown into a full-on dessert empire. Pumpkin Spice Lattes, Caramel Cocoa Cluster, Cotton Candy, and Red Velvet Frapps — little by little, the chain has replaced our morning coffee fix with carnival treats, and we’re okay with it. This month, Starbucks is taking the sweetness to a whole new level with their newest drink: American Cherry Pie Frappuccino.
According to a Starbucks press release, the drink combines cherry sauce with a vanilla-flavored cream base and a tuft of whipped cream. Finally, there’s the not-so-secret ingredient: a graham cracker dome.
Before you get too excited, we have some bummer news: The drink is only going to be available in Japan. The company actually developed the flavor combo to coincide with the country’s cherry blossom season. Last year, they toasted the annual event with a Cherry Blossom Frappuccino, which featured a matcha drizzle.
While Starbucks has no plans to release the dreamy drink on this side of the globe, it’s not entirely out of the question. A spokesperson told Eater, “as always we continue to listen to our customers’ feedback and look for opportunities to bring fan favorites from around the world to the US.”
