Starbucks is never one to shy away from controversial coffee creations, and their new Holiday offering absolutely is no different.
Fruitcake is a joke. It’s the butt of everyone’s humor as the gift you give someone you don’t really want to spend any significant money on and frankly can’t stand. It’s the gift the elderly distant aunt who lives across the country sends every year. Nobody eats it. It sits in the counter until its thrown away. Starbucks feels it can capitalize on the rich history we have with fruitcake by introducing the brand new Fruitcake Frappucino.
The drink is composed of Hazelnut Creme Frappuccino, dried fruit, cinnamon, and is topped with whipped cream, caramel dots and a sprinkle of matcha. If that doesn’t have you champong at the bit, Starbucks will also be offering a complementary ugly sweater cozy with the purchase of a Fruitcake Frappucino, as long as you are a Starbucks Rewards Member, and until supplies last!
