FAST FOOD NEWS: Starbucks Christmas Tree Frappuccino

Starbucks Christmas Tree Frappuccino

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.

A grande with whole milk has 420 calories, 21 grams of fat, 13 grams of saturated fat, 0.5 grams of trans fat, 65 milligrams of cholesterol, 0 milligrams of sodium, 53 grams of carbohydrates, 1 gram of fiber, 50 grams of sugar, 6 grams of protein, and 15 milligrams of caffeine.

One thought to “FAST FOOD NEWS: Starbucks Christmas Tree Frappuccino”

  1. I would like to point out that the only listing for this Frappuccino I can find on Starbucks’ website has the information for their creme based beverage. I asked the barista working and he said they have a coffee based and a creme version; usually the creme based drinks have less calories and of course, less caffeine than those with a coffee base. Unless you specifically ask for the Christmas Tree Creme Frappuccino, you’re probably going to get the coffee based one (which has more than 15mg of caffeine for those concerned).
    The coffee based one wasn’t all that good (the matcha was very overpowering once the components began to mix in my opinion) and quite honestly I don’t have the desire to try the creme based one after that experience to report back on how it compares.
