Starbucks Launches New Christmas Tree Frappuccino For The Holiday Season

Share
Behold the Christmas Tree Frappuccino now available at Starbucks through Dec. 11

The tree's garland is made from caramel drizzle while the ornaments are candied cranberries.

The matcha whipped cream could use a bit more matcha, too, since the tree isn't very green and it tastes just like regular whipped cream.

The epic new drink will be available for only five days this month at Starbucks locations across Canada and the US. You might even find some sliced strawberries in there as well to "top" the topper.

Get it while it's cold!

O' Christmas tree, O' Christmas tree! I want one so badly, ' wrote one excited fan. Not only is it quite literally shaped and created to look like a Christmas tree, but it has a mix of flavors so curious and unprecedented in Starbucks drink lore that it's only natural that many people are wondering what the Starbucks Christmas Tree Frappuccino tastes like before taking the plunge.

Unsurprisingly, there's 50 grams of sugar in a grande, along with some hard-to-pronounce preservatives in the drink's syrups, including potassium sorbate, sodium citrate, sodium benzoate and more.

'Verdict: minty and tasty, though not as festive looking as some of the other special frapps like the zombie or unicorn.

A holiday is approaching and that can mean only one thing: Starbucks is going to create a frappuccino full of colors that don't seem natural or edible but you're going to pay a lot of money for it anyway for the Instagram likes.
