Frappuccinos are one of the best things that have ever come out of our beloved coffee chain Starbucks. While PSL’s and Caramel Macchiatos are delicious, there’s really nothing like the classic frap. Many of us were introduced to coffee through the blended drink, and it will always hold a special place in our hearts.
Did you know that frappuccino flavors vary wildly from country to country? Typically they reflect the local cuisine and food preferences, which means that when you travel, you can sample different and exciting flavors that may not be available in your home country. So which flavors are the best? We’ve rounded up some of our favorites.
Merry Strawberry Cake Frappuccino — Japan
This Japanese frap features a sponge cake flavored base that’s then layered with strawberry sauce and sponge cake crumbs, topped with whipped cream and sprinkled with freeze dried strawberries. Delicious!
Phantom Frappuccino — Europe
Seasonal frappuccinos aren’t exclusive to the United States. The Phantom frap, which is made from coconut milk, mango, pineapple, and the Starbucks crème Frappuccino syrup is later finished with “lime slime” and charcoal powder. The drink is the perfect Halloween treat, and it’s also vegan!
Tie-Dye Frappuccino — United States
The Tie-Dye Frappuccino, found in the United States, is described on Starbucks’ website as: “This deliciously fruity drink is vibrant with red, blue, and yellow tie-dye swirls, topped with vanilla whipped cream, and dusted with red, blue, and yellow powder.” It’s said to taste like a banana Laffy Taffy, and we’re certainly not upset about that.
Peach on the Beach Frappuccino — Japan
Nothing sounds more refreshing than a juicy peach on a hot day at the beach, so Japan has come up with the perfect frappuccino flavor with this one. The drink is made with a base of delicious Japanese white peaches, a treat that you should not skip out on if you happen to be in Japan.
Bubblegum and Cotton Candy Frappuccino — Mexico
Mexico’s contribution to exciting frappuccino flavors is doubly awesome with cotton candy and bubblegum flavor options. They both have bright colors that match these fun childhood favorites. Which one would you choose?
Avocado Blended Frappuccino — South Korea
While an Avocado Frapp flavor might sound strange at first, trust us, it’s absolutely delicious. Made with real blended avocado, the drink is surprisingly delicious and refreshing. It even has a little chocolate ball on top that is meant to replicate the avocado pit, how cute is that?!
