Starbucks has become a staple in our culture. Can you remember life before the famous coffee chain? Starbucks has fueled our coffee (and caffeine) addiction since 1971, with its popularity exploding in the 90’s and early 2000’s. Now, Starbucks is a regular part of our lives. The company knows this, and so it has a plan in action in order to keep reinventing its brand in order to stay relevant.
Every once in a while, we hear about a brand new Starbucks drink that is meant to tantalize us straight to our nearest Starbucks branch. The thing is…this works really well! Remember the Unicorn Frappuccino? We know that some people hopped from one Starbucks location to another in order to find these neon bright blended beverages. Okay, we admit we’re totally guilty of doing this — but they were delicious!
The latest and greatest the coffee shop giant has to offer is the perfect summertime treat. Starbucks newest drink is the Mango Dragonfruit Refresher — which, much like its unicorn predecessor — is a bright pink shade, mixed with dragon fruit chunks and dotted with its signature black seeds. If you really want to step up the tropical vibes, you can always add in a splash of coconut milk to the mix.
But the Mango Dragonfruit Refresher isn’t the only drink that Starbucks is releasing for summer. Those who loved the S’mores Frappuccino are in for some good news — the drink is officially back on the menu. Definitely hurry to order it, since it will only be available during the summer. If you’re a fan of the cookie-themed blended beverages, you’ll be delighted to hear that Starbucks is unveiling two new Frap flavors.
The new flavors are Caramel Ribbon Chunk, which includes a dark caramel syrup blended with coffee, ice, milk, and a sugary and crunchy caramel topping. The second is the Mocha Cookie Crumble, which includes a mocha syrup and topped with chocolate cookie crumbs. These two new flavors are here to stay, as they’re being added to the chain’s permanent menu.
Are you excited for these new drinks? Which flavor do you think you’d enjoy the most?
