Starbucks introduces Berry Prickly Pear and Mango Pineapple Frappuccino

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.
