Starbucks Fruitcake Frappuccino Makes its Debut

It's a fruitcake too tasty to re-gift: the new Starbucks® Fruitcake Frappuccino® blended beverage.

The new beverage is inspired by holiday fruitcake with its colorful candied fruits, nuts and spices. Starbucks version starts with a Hazelnut Crème Frappuccino® blended beverage with dried fruit added and spiced with cinnamon, topped with whipped cream and an ornate topping of caramel dots and a sprinkle of matcha.

But unlike a traditional fruitcake, Fruitcake Frappuccino won’t last forever. It’s available for a limited time starting today (December 15) through the weekend in participating Starbucks® stores in the U.S. and Canada.

The beverage arrives just in time to celebrate another festive tradition – ugly holiday sweaters. On National Ugly Sweater Day, December 16, Starbucks Rewards™ members can receive an ugly sweater beverage cozy as a gift with the purchase of a Fruitcake Frappuccino.*

Customers can also celebrate Ugly Sweater Day with a package of six Ugly Sweater Cookies. The gingerbread treats are wearing not-so-ugly frosted sweaters featuring a snowman, snowflake and Christmas tree. The cookies are available through the holidays. 


*Limited to stock on hand, while supplies last at participating Starbucks stores in the United States and Canada.
