| Trending News

Starbucks is getting ready for the summer!

The coffee chain released their newest drink, Midnight Mint Mocha Frappuccino, that rumor has it tastes like a Thin Mint. The chocolatey drink will be the perfect addition to the summer menu and will be joined by the return of the S’mores Frappuccino. Both beverages will be available on May 2 and sell through the summer months.

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

The new frappuccino is made up of “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.”

The minty drink will be a great go-to beverage on hot summer days. “Mint is instantly cooling,” added another member of the beverage development team. “It contrasts with the dark cocoa and whipped cream for a balanced, refreshing beverage.”

The S’mores Frappuccino is returning due to popular demand and is the definition of summer. It’s made up of marshmallow- infused whipped cream, milk chocolate sauce and an icy blend of coffee and milk, topped with crunchy graham cracker crumble.
