Grab your straws, Starbucks lovers — there’s a new Frappuccino.

Starting April 28, the coffee company will be offering a S’mores frozen blended beverage, which is “inspired by the nostalgic summer experience of roasting S’mores,” a spokesperson for Starbucks tells PEOPLE.

The new drink mimics its namesake treat by deliciously layering ingredients: a marshmallow-flavored whipped cream on the bottom, followed by milk chocolate sauce, then a layer of the classic blended coffee Frappuccino (with some graham cracker thrown in for good measure), topped off with a healthy serving of more marshmallow whipped cream sprinkled with crushed graham cracker topping.

The first Frappuccinos debuted in 1995 and were available only in coffee and mocha flavors. Now, the company boasts a history of fancy Fraps including a pink Birthday Cake Frappuccino, a blue Seattle Seahawks flavor for the 2015 Super Bowl and a bright green Franken Frappuccino for Halloween.

This chocolaty campfire-inspired drink sounds almost as good as Starbucks’ secret-menu Twix Frappuccino. Almost.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
