Starbucks is doing its best to get us ready for the warmer weather with a new drink every time we turn around. From their campfire-ready S’mores Frappucino to their beautifully blooming teas for Mother’s Day, we’re definitely feeling spring and summer. And what’s more summer than an ice cream shop? Meet the Caramel Waffle Cone Frappuccino. Just let that name sink in for a moment.
“When you think of waffle cones in an ice cream shop, it’s that aroma of the caramelized brown sugar and butter that draw you in,” Starbucks beverage development team member Maretta Delacruz explains on their website. “We used these aromas as our inspiration to capture the flavor of the new Caramel Waffle Cone Frappuccino.” And where did that inspiration lead? To a Caramel Waffle Cone Frappuccino made with waffle cone syrup and dark caramel sauce, which is blended with coffee, milk and ice then topped with whipped cream, waffle cone pieces and more dark caramel sauce. *BRB mopping up drool*
If that wasn’t awesome enough, Starbucks wants to give you an extra opportunity to enjoy your fave summer drink by bringing back their Frappuccino Happy Hour. Starting today and staying around until May 15, you can grab a half-priced Frappuccino from 3pm to 5pm daily. If you happen to be a Starbucks Rewards member, then you get a little added time, being able to nab your half-price treat until 6pm. Yep, we can picture sipping this poolside — or even better — beachside.
Looks like its going to be (another) Frappuccino-filled summer!
