After several years of classy food reviews, the internet’s most well-dressed food critic, “Report of the Week”, has focused his attention on Starbucks’ new Pokemon Go-themed frappuccino.
The drink, which is available for a limited time, consists of a vanilla bean base with raspberry syrup and freeze-dried blackberries, topped with whipped cream. Although it gets relatively high marks for its smoothie-like texture and “pleasant blend” of flavors, the taste of vanilla is said to be dominant, with the flavor of blackberry being almost non-existent. Beyond this, RotW points out what we were all thinking: the timing of the drink’s release makes no sense, since Pokemon Go is almost done being a thing.
