If you love Starbucks Frappuccinos, you’ll be excited to know that Starbucks recently made two new permanent additions to their Frappuccino lineup. I had previously posted about the Starbucks Triple Mocha Frappuccino and this time I will be reviewing the Starbucks Ultra Caramel Frappuccino.
Disclosure: I am a media partner of Starbucks Canada and receive complimentary credit to try their new products.
According to the company, the Starbucks Ultra Caramel Frappuccino is a dark caramel coffee Frappuccino that is enveloped between layers of whipped cream that’s infused with cold brew, white chocolate mocha and dark caramel. On each layer of whipped cream is a dollop of rich caramel sauce.
I’m usually not a fan of caramel anything really, but I was really impressed with how good the Starbucks Ultra Caramel Frappuccino tastes. It wasn’t very sweet and rich at all and very drinkable. The whipped cream infused with cold brew was probably the most interesting part of the drink. It’s pretty much like whipped cream 2.0 – that is, at an elevated level. I liked the nutty flavours that the whipped cream offered. In all, I thought the caramel flavours complimented the coffee flavours very well. I definitely liked it more than the Tim Hortons Salted Caramel Iced Capp that I reviewed recently.
A Tall Starbucks Ultra Caramel Frappuccino with whole milk has 350 calories, 17 grams of fat, 47 grams of carbs, and 70 mg of caffeine. The Ultra Caramel does have more calories than the regular Caramel Frappuccino at 300 calories and 11 grams of fat for a Tall. If you want to cut down on the calories, you can always order a “skinny” – that is, without whipped cream and with nonfat milk.
A Tall is $4.95; Grande is $5.45; and Venti is $5.85. The Ultra Caramel Frappuccino is more expensive than the regular Caramel Frappuccino (Tall $4.65; Grande $4.95; Venti $5.45). Prices are CAD and based on Starbucks locations in Vancouver, BC.
I really enjoyed the Starbucks Ultra Caramel Frappuccino and it might just be my favourite Frappuccino. I would recommend it. Rating: 5/5
