Starbucks Birthday Cake Frappuccino

Starbucks Birthday Cake Frappuccino

Starbucks beloved Frappuccino is turning 20 years old this year!  To commemorate this momentous occasion, Starbucks is offering a limited edition flavour: birthday cake.  The Starbucks Birthday Cake Frappucino is offered March 26 – 30 only.  It is a vanilla bean and hazelnut blend, topped with raspberry-infused whipped cream.

Starbucks Birthday Cake Frappucino Taste

I headed to my regular Starbucks location at Davie and Thurlow and tried one of these birthday cake frappucinos.  The staff there is really nice and I find my interactions with them enjoyable.

I had a tall which cost $4.25 but a grande is $5.25 plus tax.  In my opinion, it is hard to find an agreement on what “birthday cake” should actually taste like.  The Starbucks Birthday Cake Frappucino is essentially a vanilla blended beverage to me.  Perhaps Starbucks should have named it just as Birthday Frappucino.  It is probably not my favorite Frappucino flavour, but is still enjoyable.

I really love the Java Chip Frappucino. It is coffee with mocha-flavored sauce mixed with milk, chocolaty chips and ice and topped with chocolate-flavored drizzle.  The perfect Frappuccino for chocolate-lovers!

A close second would be the Green Tea Frappucino.  It is Tazo® Matcha green tea with milk and ice.
