New Starbucks beverages take Frappuccino season to the next level

It’s that time of year when the days are getting longer, coats stay in the closet and new Frappuccino® blended beverages arrive at Starbucks.  Starbucks is celebrating the arrival of Frappuccino season with two new layered beverages joining the classic lineup. Ultra Caramel Frappuccino and Triple Mocha Frappuccino blended beverages join Starbucks official menu in the United States and Canada starting May 1, along with the classic Caramel and Mocha Frappuccino blended beverages.

Ultra Caramel and Triple Mocha Frappuccino blended beverages both feature new sweet cold brew whipped cream – infused with cold brew, dark caramel sauce and white chocolate mocha sauce. The new delicious cold brew whipped cream topping can also be added to any cold or hot Starbucks beverage for 50 cents.

Ultra Caramel Frappuccino blended beverage

Ultra Caramel Frappuccino® blended beverage features sweet cold brew whipped cream and dark caramel sauce, then layered with a dark caramel coffee Frappuccino made with dark caramel sauce, Frappuccino® Roast coffee and milk, blended with ice. The handcrafted beverage is then finished with another layer of sweet cold brew whipped cream and a swirl of smoky dark caramel drizzle.

“Right away, you taste something different with the sweet cold brew whipped cream,” said Debbie Antonio, senior manager for Starbucks R&D. “Sip after sip, you get the blended coffee and the lighter whip with the dark caramel threaded all the way through.”

Triple Mocha Frappuccino blended beverage

Triple Mocha Frappuccino® blended beverage begins with a layer of Sweet Cold Brew Whipped Cream topped with a layer of dark mocha sauce, at the bottom of the cup. A mocha Frappuccino made with mocha sauce, Frappuccino® Roast coffee and milk blended with ice comes next, followed by a final layer of sweet cold brew whipped cream and a swirl of dark mocha drizzle.

“You can have mocha in every sip with Triple Mocha Frappuccino,” said Antonio. “You get both white chocolate and rich dark mocha, layered with cold brew whipped cream for contrast, texture.”

Bottled Frappuccino coffee drink

Customers can also enjoy their Frappuccino at home or on-the-go with Starbucks ready-to-drink Mocha and Caramel Bottled Frappuccino, available in grocery and select Starbucks stores nationwide.
