Excuse us if the following post is shorter than usual.
We need to run out and make a Starbucks trip as soon as humanly possible.
The national coffee chain has come out with yet another addictive reason for consumers to make multiple trips every week, introducing a new type of Frappuccino.
We're talking affogato style!
Wait... so what, exactly, are we talking about?
An affogato is an Italian dessert in which a shot of hot espresso is poured over cold vanilla gelato or ice cream.
The result? It's a deliciously melty, caffeinated delight.
Here is what it looks like:
According to various outlets, Starbucks will make any Frappuccino on the menu "affogato-style," meaning a barista will pour a shot of espresso on top of the drink for a beautiful marbling effect.
They establishment is featuring three suggested flavors, Vanilla Bean, Caramel and Mocha.
Affogato-style Frappuccinos will be available at Starbucks in the United States and Canada starting on July 7 (that's today!) and lasting through the summer.
