Summer may just be starting for all of us, but the heated raced for Starbucks to top their Pink Drink and Unicorn Frappuccinos is already on. According to some charmingly pesky foodies in Nevada, Starbucks is readying to launch new fruit-loaded Frappuccinos just in time for some serious summer heatwaves.
First posted and discussed by our Foodbeast tip-liners @fatclosetgirl and @ryusauce, we now have confirmation from a Starbucks location and multiple baristas that these two new Frappuccinos - the Prickly Pear Frappuccino and the Pineapple Mango Frappuccino - will be dropping nationwide starting Tuesday, June 20th.
Both frappuccinos appear to be part of an inaugural lineup called "Colors of Summer," and will be available for a limited time once they do launch. Apparently, each consists of a mango creme frappuccino base with a special fruit puree (mango pineapple or berry and prickly pear) at the bottom and top of the blended drink. They normally don't come with the usual whipped cream topping, but you can ask for it, according to some baristas on Reddit.
It's fitting that these new frappes are the first to drop in the new set, because man, do they look gorgeous. I'm gonna have a hard time deciding which one to try first, that's for sure.
We have reached out to Starbucks USA regarding the new frappuccinos to get more details and confirm what we've heard through the grapevine already, so stay tuned here for updates as we receive them.
