Marshawn Lynch Introduces New ‘Beast Mode’ Starbucks Frappuccino


“I’m just here so I won’t suffer from caffeine withdrawal.”

Seattle Seahawks’ Marshawn Lynch may be known for unleashing his beast on the field, but now the champion running back is putting his skills to the test at Starbucks. Lynch has created a new double mocha Frappuccino with a “hint of mint and cream and just enough protein powder,” and topped with whipped cream, matcha powder, and a purple berry drizzle.

The new limited-edition creation, known by his nickname, “Beast Mode,” will be sold throughout the rest of football season in Washington and Oakland.

“I’d drink this before a workout,” Lynch said in a press release. “You could get your buff on with this.”

The best part is that starting October 22, 24 cents of every Frappuccino sold (that’s Lynch’s number) will go toward empowering opportunity youth at Lynch’s non-profit, the Fam 1st Family Foundation, which teaches underprivileged kids the importance of education, literacy, and self-esteem.

“When you believe in a young person, you’re opening up a pathway to meaningful employment and lifelong opportunity,” said Blair Taylor, Starbucks chief community officer in a statement. “We are thrilled to be working with Marshawn and his foundation as we collectively work towards supporting youth who are not just looking for a second chance, but the opportunity to dream big and win.”
