The Unicorn Frappuccino has come and gone, but you can be pretty damn sure that it won’t be Starbucks last attempt to capitalize on Internet-fueled novelty sugar drinks. In fact, some Starbucks locations have made the best out of dwindling Unicorn Frapp ingredients by creating their own Dragon-themed versions. Apparently, they taste a lot better and are easier to make. [click to continue…]

Japan has out America-ed America with the American Cherry Pie Frappuccino. This glorious beverage is intended to capture the flavor of a cherry pie topped with ice cream. It even features a lid made from pie crust that you have to pierce with a straw. It just might be the best thing Starbucks has ever done. [click to continue…]

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.

The holiday season can officially begin now that Starbucks has introduced its 2016 winter cup designs. And to add to the merriment, the company has ensured that the sins of last year are not repeated, emblazoning 12 of the 13 different designs with snowflakes, poinsettia, winter landscapes, reindeer, ornaments, Christmas tree lights and most importantly, an abundance of festive red. A 13th design featuring a wreath will also be available on a plastic cup for cold drinks.

The design of this year’s cups are the result of a crowdsourcing effort that stemmed from customers inundating the company with improvements over last year’s solid red debacle. The company realized the potential of letting customers handle the design work and soon 1,200 designs were submitted via Instagram from 13 different countries. The results will be available at over 25,000 locations in 75 countries, where they will be admired at a glance then tossed in the trash.
