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.
