Starbucks adds summer fruit flavors in their latest colorful Frappuccino blended Crème beverages

 

Seattle, 2017-Jun-21 — /EPR Retail News/ — Summer fruits that are as vibrant in color as they are sweet, tangy and juicy in taste were the inspiration for Starbucks newest Frappuccino blended beverages. Starting today (June 20) Starbucks is featuring a variety of succulent, summer fruit flavors in their latest colorful Frappuccino blended Crème beverages.

Berry Prickly Pear Frappuccino® blended Crème beverage

A mango Frappuccino blended Crème is poured over a strawberry and prickly pear fruit puree which, in addition to strawberry, also features subtle notes of hibiscus, passionfruit and lime. The drink is finished with another layer of berry prickly pear fruit puree for a beautifully layered blended beverage.

“Prickly pear has a similar taste to tropical melon and berry, and we found that it pairs really well with strawberries,” said Jennica Robinson from the Starbucks beverage development team. “This Frappuccino is made without whipped cream, so the fruit flavors and bright colors really shine through.”

Mango Pineapple Frappuccino® blended Crème beverage

This drink starts with a mango Frappuccino blended Crème, poured over a mango-pineapple puree, which displays tropical flavors of juicy mango, pineapple and a hint of lime. It is finished with another layer of mango pineapple puree for additional fruit flavor.

“The mouthwatering fruit puree forms ribbons of bright color throughout the Frappuccino, creating creamy and fruity layers of flavor as you sip the beverage,” said Robinson.

Customers will find these new exciting Frappuccino beverages at Starbucks® stores in the U.S. and Canada starting today (June 20) and for a limited time this summer while supplies last.

Starbucks® introduces the new Midnight Mint Mocha Frappuccino

Starbucks® introduces the new Midnight Mint Mocha Frappuccino

SEATTLE, 2017-May-03 — /EPR Retail News/ — Just in time for Frappuccino® beverage season, Starbucks® stores in the United States and Canada are blending something new for customers with the Midnight Mint Mocha Frappuccino® blended beverage along with returning favorite S’mores Frappuccino® blended beverage. Both beverages are available in participating Starbucks stores in the United States and Canada starting today (May 2), along with new food and two new Teavana ready-to-drink craft teas.

Midnight Mint Mocha Frappuccino

Summer evenings were the inspiration for Starbucks new Midnight Mint Mocha Frappuccino® blended beverage.

“We started by thinking of the heydays of summer,” said Jennica Robinson from Starbucks beverage development team. “We were inspired by thoughts of dark starry nights, looking up at the sky with a cool summer breeze.”

The beautiful layered beverage starts with scoops of extra-dark cocoa blended with coffee, milk and ice, infused with cooling mint sugar crystals and cut with a layer of whipped cream.  It is then topped with more whipped cream and a dusting of dark cocoa.

“Mint is instantly cooling,” said beverage development manager Ryan Coombes “It contrasts with the dark cocoa and whipped cream for a balanced, refreshing beverage.”

The new beverage also taps into the dark food trend popular in social media, such as black macarons and charcoal ice cream.

“People are gravitating toward vibrant colors,” Coombes said. “Jet black is filling the void in unexpected places.”

Frappuccino Happy Hour Returns on Friday

Starbucks® Frappuccino® Happy Hour returns to stores starting this Friday, May 5, through Sunday, May 14. Customers can visit a participating Starbucks store in the United States and Canada from 3 to 6 p.m. local time and enjoy half-off Frappuccino blended beverages, any flavor and any size.

Refreshment on-the Go

For quick refreshment, Starbucks has added new Dulce de Leche Frappuccino® bottled coffee drink to its ready-to-drink lineup, with a smooth blend of sweet caramelized milk and coffee. Available in the United States where groceries are sold.
