Starbucks Is Celebrating 1 Last Hurrah for Summer with 2 New Frappuccino Flavors


The two fruity frozen drinks will only be available until Labor Day

The blackberries and crème and strawberry shortcake Frappuccinos will only be available until Labor Day.

Starbucks is bringing back their beloved pumpkin spice latte in a few days (we even have a countdown going on). But first, to celebrate one last hurrah for summer, the coffee chain is introducing two new Frappuccino flavors through Labor Day.

Starbucks is adding blackberries and crème and strawberry shortcake Frappuccinos starting August 27. The first is a blend of vanilla bean, blackberries, milk, and ice, topped with a sprinkle of cinnamon dolce, and the strawberry shortcake drink contains strawberries, strawberry juice, vanilla bean, milk, ice, and hazelnut syrup.

Earlier this summer, as part of what they called a “flavor-off contest,” Starbucks released six fan-created Frappuccino flavors, including caramel cocoa cluster, cinnamon roll, cotton candy, cupcake, lemon bar, and red velvet cake, asking customers to vote for their favorite.

After more than two million fans voted for caramel cocoa cluster as their favorite blended beverage, the contest ended June 30. The caramel cocoa cluster Frappuccino, which was only available for a limited time, was made with toffee nut syrup, coffee milk, ice, dark caramel sauce, whipped cream, and mocha sauce.

Outbreak. Epidemic. Pandemic.

Then came the panic buying, the shutdowns and holding our collective breath, waiting for the surge in the Midwest.

But the COVID-19 pandemic couldn’t — and didn’t — keep everyone in Kansas City inside. Not during a summer marked by mass protests against police violence. And especially not during a high-stakes presidential election.
