Starbucks Debuts Six New Frappuccino ‘Fan Flavors’

06/08/2015 at 02:53 PM ET


Get ready for a new Starbucks order!

From cold-brew iced coffee to mini Frappuccinos, the coffee chain is pulling out all the stops for summer. And now comes another sweet announcement: the introduction of six new frappuccino flavors!

Dubbed “fan flavors,” the new blended beverages are Red Velvet Cake, Cotton Candy, Cinnamon Roll, Lemon Bar, Caramel Cocoa Cluster and Cupcake, reports the Chicago Tribune.

The sugary drinks — which perfectly complement Starbucks’ other summertime flavor, S’mores — are spins on some of their classic counterparts. For example, the Cotton Candy Frappuccino is a standard Vanilla Bean Creme Frappuccino with raspberry syrup added, while the Cupcake Frappuccino adds hazelnut syrup to the Vanilla Bean Creme Frappuccino.

Although they may not count as “skinny,” the new flavors do range in calorie count. The grande sizes can be up to 510 calories (based on the company’s standard recipes with whipped cream and whole milk) for the Cinnamon Roll Frappuccino, while the lowest-calorie option is the Lemon Bar Frappuccino at 350 calories.

And another reason to try all six? Customers can vote online from June 19 to 30 for their favorite new flavor. The winning one will be sold at a discounted price of $3 for a grande 2-5 p.m. on July 3-6.

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.

That’s a lot of calories for a drink! Way too much sugar/fat content.

I am still waiting for them to bring back coconut mocha. They finally made a bottled version, but it just isn’t the same.

In otherwords, Starbucks would like to make people fat.

Sugar, sugar, and more sugar. No thank you, Starbucks.

Sounds great… Just a weekend pleasure occasionally

Does Starbucks own stock in PEOPLE? Every other day there’s an article about Starbucks.

MimiB on

wow… sugar, fat, sugar and more sugar and fat. No thanks. Those Frappuccinos are calorie and sugar bombs. Drink those daily and watch your bottoms grow.

Even the so called “lightest” is 350 calories.

We just got the coconut mocha in Saudi Arabia, I love it, but none of these sound good to me.
