For those who like their coffee cold, the Frappuccino ® is an absolute favorite. Made with coffee or espresso, ice and some flavoring it is the perfect drink on a hot summer day. The whipped cream on top is the icing on the cake. This drink is so good, it keeps people coming back for more.
A lot of people wonder, why didn’t someone think of it sooner? The truth is, a lot of people did but few believed it would sell. Thank goodness for Starbucks!
Now there are some people out there who will yell and say, “that’s not coffee!” and maybe to them it isn’t. Personally, if the drink has coffee in it and is sold in a coffeeshop, then it is coffee. Better yet just drink it and enjoy the taste.
To each his own they say, and that is true of the frappuccino as well. You can step up to any counter of any starbucks and ask for a regular frappuccino which is absolutely delicious. On the other hand you can be a little bold and adventurous and try out some new flavors with your favorite frap.
Tried and tested is the mocha frappuccino. For others they need a touch of vanilla to add that sweet taste and that absolutely wonderful aroma unique to that bean. Absolutely great news: Starbucks has bottled their famous frappuccino, including these two flavors , so that those frap lovers who have no time to go to a Starbucks or are too far for them to deliver (how can that be?) can have their frappuccino anytime they want, anywhere they are.
