Unlike a real Christmas tree, you can’t put presents under it or let it sit out until mid-February. But Starbucks’ new Christmas Tree Frappuccino can get you in the holiday mood or give you a sweet break from your Christmas shopping.

The festive beverage features mocha sauce and peppermint syrup blended with milk and ice that’s topped with a tree made with matcha-infused whipped cream. The tree is decorated with a caramel drizzle as tinsel and candied cranberries as ornaments. The final touch is a strawberry that’s used as a tree topper.

It’s available for a very limited time (until Monday, December 11) at participating locations in the U.S. and Canada.

FAST FOOD NEWS: Burger King Bacon King Jr.

Burger King Bacon King Jr

Late last year, Burger King rolled out the Bacon King. Since then, it’s been raining Bacon King variations like the Rodeo King and Mushroom & Swiss King. But the latest, the Bacon King Jr., is just a smaller version of the original Bacon King.

The burger features two flame-grilled 100 percent beef patties topped with thick-cut smoked bacon, two slices of American cheese, ketchup, and mayonnaise on a toasted sesame seed bun. Instead of the 1/4 lb. patties in the regular Bacon King, the smaller burger uses the patties found in BK’s value burgers.

Nutrition facts aren’t currently available on Burger King’s website.
