Starbucks Is Bringing The Caramel Cocoa Cluster Frappuccino BACK

Unbeknownst to many, today is National Caramel Day, and Starbucks is bringing back one of their most famously delicious frappuccinos in honor of the holiday, the Caramel Cocoa Cluster Frappuccino.

This frappuccino treat is made with toffee nut syrup, milk, coffee, blended ice, then blanketed with a layer of caramel syrup, topped with whipped cream, then finally drizzled with the famous mocha chocolate sauce.

Created last year for the Frappuccino Flav-Off, this caramel-packed delight competed against some highly competitive flavors that, frnakly, all sound mouthwateringly delicious. Beating out flavors like Cotton Candy, Lemon Bar, Red Velvet Cake, Cinnamon Roll and Cupcake is no easy task in itself.

Regrettably, the drink was discontinued after a short stint on the open market.

Fear not though, for the frappuccino gods look down favorably upon you! From now until April 11th, Starbucks will be selling the Caramel Cocoa Cluster Frappuccino at all participating locations, so be sure to pick one up before they’re gone again!

McDonald’s Does V-Day Early with Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Frap


Listen up fellas, McDonald’s wants to be your one stop shop for spectacularly budget-friendly Valentine’s Day woo-ing. I mean, Adventure Time toys and drinks that taste just like synthetic chocolate-covered strawberries? SUH-WOON.

For a limited time, you can swoop up your own “Chocolate Covered Strawberry”-flavored frappe at all participating McDonald’s locations (which, based on the three local spots we called, seems to be most of them). The drink is a chocolate chip-blended mocha base topped with whipped cream and strawberry syrup, that tastes just reminiscent enough to make you wish you’d gotten an actual chocolate-covered strawberry.




Our local store had them for $2.79, $3.29, and $3.79 for the small, medium, and large.
