Whenever I see someone drinking a Frappuccino, I immediately think they’re under the age of 14 because what grown-ass person actually orders a Frappuccino when they go to Starbucks? Anyway, if you’re one of those people who absolutely loves the blended beverage, I have great news for you!
In honor of the drink’s 21st birthday (yes, those under the legal drinking age have never lived in a world without Frappuccinos in it,) Starbucks is bringing back their birthday cake Frap for a limited time only. According to the official Starbucks News page, “The limited-time beverage features a creamy blend of vanilla bean and hazelnut, topped with pink whipped cream. Starbucks first introduced Birthday Cake Frappuccino blended beverage last year to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Frappuccino.”
Starbucks first introduced the Frappuccino in 1995, and back in those days, you could only order two flavors: coffee or mocha. Now, blended beverage enthusiasts can pretty much order any flavor, including green tea, honey caramelized crème, and smoked butterscotch, and do so from the touch of a screen on their smartphones.
Times have definitely changed but it seems that America’s love for Frappuccinos has stayed the same. You can get the special birthday Frap starting today, April 28 until May 2.
