MILAN – Starbucks launched yesterday a special tie-dye Frappuccino. The blended beverage is available starting today (July 10) at participating Starbucks stores in the United States and Canada for a limited time, while supplies last.
The beverage is made with a tropical Crème Frappuccino with dashes of powder in yellow, red and blue (which gets its color from red beet, turmeric and spirulina) that mix to make a rainbow of vibrant hues. The beverage is topped with whipped cream and a final dusting of colored powder.
Paloma Carrington-Bataller designed the colorful beverage and worked with the baristas at the Tryer Center to perfect the build.
“We wanted to create something that celebrates summer and really conveys it both visually and through flavor within the beverage,” she said. “We knew it had to make you smile at first sight and our Tie-Dye Frappuccino does all this! It’s summer in a cup and something everyone can relate to; it takes you back to sunny warm days of summer spent at camp or with friends and family.”
“It’s bright and colorful and fun and should bring a smile to your face,” Carrington-Bataller added. “Perfect for the heydays of summer.”
Starbucks has also returned their much-loved S’mores Frappuccino this summer, to the delight of many fans. A blend of marshmallow-infused whipped cream, milk chocolate sauce, coffee, milk and ice, the Frappuccino comes topped with more marshmallow whipped cream and crunchy graham cracker crumbles to complete the classic flavor.
