Starbucks Christmas Tree Frappuccinos Are Here — But Only For A Few Days
Starbucks is spreading Christmas cheer with its newest coffee concoction, but only for a very limited time.
The beverage is essentially a Peppermint Mocha Creme Frappuccino, topped with a green matcha whipped cream in the shape of a Christmas tree. The "tree" is then covered in caramel drizzle "garland" and candied cranberry "ornaments". The cherry on top is the tree topper, which is actually a strawberry.
The epic new drink will be available for only five days this month at Starbucks locations across Canada and the US. "I see the Christmas Tree Frappuccino less as a drink and more of a dessert, one you should share with a best friend or loved one", she tells Yahoo Lifestyle.
The Christmas Tree Frappuccino will cost you about $5 for a grande and set you back 420 calories. "Feeling guilty about drinking this will just lead you to try to eat less to negate it, which will be followed by overeating because you aren't fueling your body, followed by more guilt". I want one so badly, ' wrote one excited fan.
'Bought a Christmas Tree Frappuccino from Starbucks because I have no f***ing self control when it comes to Christmas-related things, ' another said. The Peppermint Mocha Crème Frappuccino base was delicious as ever, and the Matcha whipped cream was surprisingly subtle.
It just wouldn't be the holidays without another super sweet - and slightly complicated - winter themed-beverage from Starbucks.
Earlier this year, their Unicorn Frappuccino was a huge hit, and a Mermaid Frappuccino released only in Mexico drew envy from Americans and Europeans.
