Yesterday Starbucks released it’s new and highly anticipated S’mores Frappuccino. The company blog states that the drink was inspired by great summer memories of s’mores around a crackling fire. And in addition to the blended drink being served in Starbucks stores across the country, there will be a bottled frappuccino version of the drink available wherever groceries are sold.
I was pretty excited for this drink to premier. I’ve been loving the infused whipped creams since Starbucks premiered the spiced whipped cream with the pumpkin spice latte awhile back. Unlike other drinks the S’mores Frappuccino is a layered drink. It starts with marshmallow-infused whipped cream and milk-chocolate sauce, then a layer of the blended coffee, milk, graham cracker and ice, and is topped with more whipped cream and a graham cracker crumble. Personally, I normally swap out the coffee base in Frappuccinos for a creme base, but I really enjoyed the coffee in this drink. It balances out the flavor and keeps it from becoming too sweet. Additionally, the marshmallow whip on the bottom keeps the drink light and keeps it from feeling too heavy, making it seem like the ideal drink to have as the temperature outside starts to climb. (Though I must say I’m jealous that Japan gets a Fruits on Top Yogurt Frappuccino and we don’t, link here) .
Overall, I really love this drink and I’m pretty sad that it’s only available for a limited time. I’ll keep my fingers crossed that other people like this drink as much as I do and that it stays. In the near future I hope to do reviews on the S’mores tart and the bottled S’mores Frappuccino as well.
Have a great day foodies!
