Starbucks recently launched a new super-premium ice cream in flavors that will be familiar to those Starbucks junkies who know the coffee giant’s menu better than the back of their hand. Of course, for those addicts it’s hard to see the back of their hand without spilling the Starbucks coffee it’s holding.
The new, perky ice cream line replaces the old, saggy ice cream line made by Dreyer’s. Unilever will produce it and make the ice cream with milk that’s free of recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH), just like Ben & Jerry’s — another company under the Unilever umbrella.
Again, if you have Starbucks running through your veins and exiting you through your urethra, the flavors that make up the new ice cream line will be familiar to you:
Caramel Macchiato – Swirled coffee and vanilla ice creams with ribbons of golden caramel.
Mocha Frappuccino – Swirled coffee and chocolate ice creams.
Java Chip Frappuccino – Coffee ice cream with dark chocolaty chunks.
Coffee – Swirled coffee and espresso ice creams.
Pints will be available at your favorite grocer, convenience store or superstore monstrosity for a suggested retail price of $3.99.
