Who doesn’t love a tasty Starbucks drink during the holiday season? The mixture of cinnamon, spice, and everything nice makes you really feel like Chirstmas has finally arrived. Nothing gets to me more that than choco-peppermint mix, and I really mean nothing! The holiday cups are a huge deal all over the world, but this time, I really thing the coffee-company might have gone a bit too far. What do you think?

Recently, everyone’s favorite coffee company introduced their new limited-edition holiday beverage, and we just don’t know how to feel.


Who doesn’t love a good old Frappuccino?

Creamy, sweet, and with the perfect tinge of flavor, it doesn’t matter if it is below 0 degrees outside, you just can’t help but order one.

This time though, Starbucks took a huge step and introduced this bold new choice.

We present to you, the Fruitcake Frappuccino. Now…actual fruitcake is something that many find hard to swallow….literally. I mean, I don’t even know why it’s still a thing when we have so many other delicious cakes these days. So, why did the company go with this odd flavor as a new beverage option?

If you’re feeling intrigued, we’ll let you know a little more about this bizarre beverage. It starts with a hazelnut cream base, which doesn’t sound too bad, right? Then, they blend in dried fruit and cinnamon, which is questionable, to say the least. At this point, it can go either way. We could’ve been alright with all of that, especially after they top it off with whipped cream and dots of caramel (yes!). They lose us all over again, however, when they make the weird choice of topping all that goodness off with matcha powder. We’re just so confused…what do you think?

Want a way to sweeten that deal? If you’re enrolled in Starbucks’ reward program, you may be eligible to earn a free, brand new, ugly sweater with the purchase of your Fruitcake Frappe. So make sure to head over to your local Starbucks as soon as possible.
