Starbucks really knows how to give the people what they want. First, the coffee chain delighted our senses with a killer lineup of Frappuccinos which included the illustrious Unicorn Frappuccino and its follow-up Mermaid Frap, as well as its new Berry Prickly Pear and Mango Pineapple varieties. Now, in honor of summer’s return, the ‘Bucks is taking things back to its roots with a buy-one-get-one deal on grande iced espresso drinks from 2-5pm that will run from today (!!!) through Sunday, July 2.
That’s right: Thanks to the Seattle brew-masters, you’ll have the opportunity to be twice as productive in the afternoons with double the coffee in your system. Okay, okay, that may not actually be how caffeine works — not to mention potentially inadvisable if you’ve already consumed your morning cup of joe — but it’s the perfect excuse to grab a coworker for a mid-afternoon pick-me-up, no?
If you’re still stuck on a Frappuccino bender, Starbucks recommends trying a Starbucks Doubleshot on Ice, an Iced Caffè Americano, an Iced White Chocolate Mocha, an Iced Caramel Macciato, or an Iced Soy Latte in its stead.
BRB — we’ve suddenly got a coffee date!
