May 1, 2014
Algarrobina Frappuccino — Peru
Algarrobina is syrup made from the black carob tree and is popular in Peruvian cuisine. First introduced in 2011, this is a classic Frappuccino blended with chocolate chips, mocha, milk, and ice. It is then topped with whipped cream and swirl of Algarrobina sauce.
Yogurt Frappuccino — Greece
This classical Mediterranean flavor debuted in the summer of 2013 and was available only in Greece. This mixture blends the traditional coffee Frappuccino with handcrafted Greek yogurt. It is available in three flavors: strawberry, banana and honey.
Coffee Jelly Frappuccino — Asia-Pacific and Japan
Ever tried coffee jelly before? It’s made from actual brewed coffee and comes topped with a regular Starbucks Frappuccino with whipped cream. This triple-texture sensation debuted in the summer of 2008 to overwhelming success.
Strawberries and Cream Frappuccino — U.K.
Inspired by the flavors of an English summer, this Frappuccino is a core flavor in the U.S., even though it originated in the U.K. and is slightly different: Milk is blended with ice, swirled with strawberry sauce, and topped with whipped cream, creating a ribbon of strawberry around the cup. In the U.S., the strawberries are blended together with the milk and ice.
Coffee and White Tiramisu Frappuccino — Japan
One of Starbucks’ newer flavors, this debuted in the summer of 2013. A regular Frappuccino is blended with a layer of crumbly bits of cookie and brownie, then topped off with cream cheese mousse and caramel sauce before being dusted with cocoa power.
Hojicha Frappuccino with Earl Grey Jelly — Japan and Asia Pacific
This Frappuccino is an original blend of East meets West. You have the toasty creaminess of hojicha (a gently roasted Japanese green tea) which is balanced out with the addition of refreshing, floral, and aromatic Earl Grey tea jelly (yes, like that coffee jelly, but this one’s with Earl Grey tea). It was a limited edition Frap’ offered during 2012.
Brigadeiro Frappuccino — Brazil
Brigadeiro is an extremely popular Brazilian chocolate bonbon that’s mostly served at birthday parties or as dessert. This Frappuccino offering made its debut in 2012 and includes chocolate chips, both mocha and white mocha sauces, classic syrup, milk, and ice. It’s served in a cup lined with brigadeiro sauce and topped with whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles.
Dulce de Leche Granizado — Argentina
Argentinians love their dulce de leche flavored ice creams! This Frappuccino makes the best of that popular trend by blending the regular coffee roast Frappuccino with chocolate chips, milk, and ice. It is then topped with whipped cream and a spiral of caramel.
