The battle of the summer drinks is on! As Burger King makes a magically delicious addition with their Lucky Charms Shake and Disney sweetens things up with their Night Blossom drink, Starbucks has come out with a duo of Frappuccinos that may be your new seasonal picks.
Introducing the Berry Prickly Pear Frappuccino and the Mango Pineapple Frappuccino. Yum!
Once you get past how gorgeously summery both blended crème beverages look, you’ll drool over the fact that the Berry Prickly Pear Frappuccino (which wins for its fun name alone, TBH) is made with a mango frappuccino blended crème that is poured over a strawberry and prickly pear fruit puree (which has subtle notes of hibiscus, passionfruit, and lime) and is then finished with another layer of berry prickly pear fruit puree.
“Prickly pear has a similar taste to tropical melon and berry, and we found that it pairs really well with strawberries,” said Starbucks’ Jennica Robinson. “This frappuccino is made without whipped cream, so the fruit flavors and bright colors really shine through.”
If you’re in more of a mango mood, then you’ll definitely want to try out the Mango Pineapple Frappuccino. Starting again with a mango frappuccino blended crème, this time it’s poured over a mango-pineapple puree (featuring delicious hints of mango, pineapple, and lime) and is finished with a second layer of mango pineapple puree.
“The mouth-watering fruit puree forms ribbons of bright color throughout the frappuccino,” said Robinson, “creating creamy and fruity layers of flavor as you sip the beverage.”
You can opt for these new frappuccinos starting today, June 20, but they’ll only be around while supplies last, so be sure to hurry and grab one of each before it’s too late.
