Spring has exploded in your local Starbucks. At least it has in mine. Color everywhere, most of it strawberry red. New drinks, too…
The Java Chip Frap replaces the Brownie Frap. Instead of pieces of brownie in the drink, they put in chocolate chips – had it while it was being trialed and it’s OK, but I still like the Rumba best. Also a Caffè Vanilla – no idea what it is but it’s what I ordered. For non-coffee Fraps [what’s the point of that, really?] the vanilla bean and chai crème return and are joined by the double chocolate and strawberries & crème. There’s also a strawberry and cream biscotti and some other things… but more than anything else, the merchandise is screaming 1960’s-day-glo multi-color… it’s not bad; just loud.
They’ve also got some display for some “Black Apron” Exclusive bean… since I only drink what’s brewing here, I don’t care much about it, but it looks impressive.
The Caffè Vanilla Frap is pretty good… tastes like a vanilla latte got sucked into a blender and what could be bad about that?
