In time of the summer, Starbucks has launched a new Frappuccino that will also be on the permanent menu: the Starbucks Serious Strawberry Frappuccino. According to the company, this drink is flavourful layered
Disclosure: I am a media partner of Starbucks and received credit to try this new drink.
I like the bold red colours of the Starbucks Serious Strawberry Frappuccino,which makes it nicely Instagrammable. Official ads for the drink show it with more organized, distinct layers whereas mine was more combined throughout. Below is the official image from Starbucks.
At first sip, I found the Starbucks Serious Strawberry Frappuccino to be very refreshing. It had a nice strawberry flavour, was creamy and had some nice textural contrast from the seeds in the strawberry puree. I didn’t find it overly rich so it was very drinkable. Of course, you can always customize your drink at Starbucks if you want to lighten it up.
A Grande with whole milk and whipped cream has 350 calories, 14 grams of fat, and 54 grams of carbs. It’s not a coffee-based drink so it has zero caffeine. If you ask for a “skinny” – that is with nonfat milk and no whipped cream – the drink has 210 calories (140 less), 0 grams of fat, and 48 grams of carbs.
A Tall is $4.75 CAD; Grande is $5.25 CAD; and Venti is $5.65 (CAD).
Overall Impression of Starbucks Serious Strawberry Frappuccino
The Starbucks Serious Strawberry Frappuccino is a very tasty and refreshing drink for the summer season. I enjoyed the presentation and overall strawberry flavour. I would definitely be interested in ordering it again. Rating: 3.75/5
