FAST FOOD NEWS: Starbucks S’mores Frappuccino

Starbucks Smores Frappuccino

On April 28, Starbucks will offer a brand new blended beverage — the S’mores Frappuccino.

There’s been a “secret menu” recipe for a S’mores Frappuccino on the internet for a while now that involves using Cinnamon Dolce and Toffee Nut syrups to emulate the graham. But this official version is different because it uses, according to Starbucks Melody, a graham cracker syrup.

The layered beverage features a marshmallow-infused whipped cream on the bottom; a milk chocolate sauce above that; and then a layer that’s made of graham cracker syrup, coffee, milk, and ice. All of that is topped with more marshmallow whipped cream and graham cracker crumbles.

The Starbucks S’mores Frappuccino will be available for a limited time.

If you get a chance to try it, let us know what you think of it in the comments.
