Starbucks Japan Debuts Strawberry Delight Frapp for Limited Time

starbucks-japan-strawberry-delight-frappuccino

Step aside Strawberries and Creme, Starbucks Japan just changed the frapp game with their new Strawberry Delight Frappuccino. The new drink is made up of milk, ice, strawberry syrup, strawberry whipped cream, comes topped with whipped cream, and is served with an extra wide straw to suck up all the sliced strawberry pieces mixed within the frapp. Ugh, why does Japan get all the amazing crazy frappuccinos. Really though, how hard would it be to get some chopped strawberries and strawberry whipped cream all up in our American frapps?

Sounding infinitely more delicious than its U.S. counterpart, the new Strawberry Delight Frappuccino will run you 590 yen ($5.82 USD) for a tall and is only available through the end of August at Starbucks Japan locations. If you can’t get yourself to Japan before then, why not sweetly ask your local barista to whip you up one of these crazy drinks?

Starbucks Japan has been whipping up some pretty delicious flavors recently. Last month they debuted their Creamy Vanilla Latte with Lemony Swirl, now for a limited time the coffee giant is adding Fresh Banana & Chocolate Cream Frappuccinos to the menu.

The new frozen drink comes is available in two flavors:

The Fresh Banana & Caramel Cream Frappuccino, which is a caramel frapp blended with an entire banana then topped with whipped cream, white chocolate brownie crumbles, then drizzled with caramel sauce.

The Fresh Banana Chocolate & Cream Frappuccino is basically the same thing but with chocolate, it contains a whole banana blended in a chocolate frapp topped with whipped cream, brownie crumbles and chocolate sauce.

These have banana in them so it’s totally healthy right? The frapps come with extra wide straws so you won’t suck yourself silly trying to get at those brownie and banana chunks.

Both drinks are set to debut on April 16 and will be available until May 11. To get a version of this frapp here in the U.S. might we suggest asking your local barista to blend a whole banana into your favorite chocolate or caramel frapp?

Lemon is what you squeeze into tea and water, not coffee right? But what if you’re craving some good zest with your morning pick-me-up, because reasons? It’s a good thing Starbucks drinks tend to be more dessert than coffee, huh?

In its Japanese locations, which seem to get at least five new flavors for our every one, Starbucks just introduced a new “Creamy Vanilla Latte with Lemony Swirl.” According to Brand Eating, this entails a vanilla and lemon curd latte base topped with lemon peel-flavored white chocolate, bits of dried lemon peel, lemon vanilla sauce, and whipped cream; also available as a Frappuccino.

Reviews on the Starbucks Japan Facebook suggest the drink tastes “refreshing” and a bit like “cheesecake.” According to reddit, the name is also “f–king annoying to say in Japanese.”
