Starbucks to Offer a Birthday Cake Frappuccino for 5 Days Only
Luckily, Starbucks seems to be on top of this important life-truth.
The coffee chain is celebrating the 20th birthday of its signature frozen drink with a new Birthday Cake Frappuccino. The limited-edition drink will only be available in stores for five days, from March 26-30.
So how do you make a birthday-cake-flavored Frap? (No, not with Funfetti.) Starbucks’ vanilla bean and hazelnut flavors are blended together and then topped with a raspberry-infused (read: pink!) whipped cream.
The first Frappuccinos debuted in 1995 and were available only in coffee and mocha flavors. Now, the company boasts a history of fancy Fraps: a blue Seattle Seahawks flavor for the 2015 Super Bowl; a bright green Franken Frappuccino for Halloween; and a frozen version of its newest holiday flavor, the tastes-like-a-cup-of-Christmas-carols Chestnut Praline.
Fingers crossed for a happy-hour-appropriate, boozy birthday cake flavor when the Frappuccino turns 21 next year.
