Starbucks frappuchino!

To start off with my very first blog post about something, I will write about starbucks, THE coffee shop everyone loves! Even if you don’t like coffee, they have coffee free drinks too! One of these are the frappuchino’s, although if you want a coffee free one you need to ask for a ‘cremé’ frappuchino. Gettable in different flavors, I like the chocolate cremé frappuchino a lot, that’s why I keep ordering that drink when I get the chance! And if you think you only have a few possiblities of a frappuchino, then you have it wrong! There are lots of different frappuchino’s!.

So to speak off that we have a lot of different types and variaties!

‘Light’ (Starbucks created a “Light” version which according to the company has 54% of the calories, 17% of the fat (0.5 g vs 3 g) and 52% of the carbohydrates of the original)
Crème (Basically a crème base WITHOUT coffee)
Vegan (This includes Soymilk)

Blended coffee
Blended crème
Juice blends (They came up with this drink in 2006, it’s made of real fruit juice with Tazo Tea and blended with ice)
Vivanno Nourishing Blends (These drinks come only in three different flavors)
Special versions (These are the seasonal ones)
Modifications (These can be double blended, made with more or less ice, it can also include espresso shots and flavored syrups)

Frappuchino’s can be made with ANY type of syrup and even any type of milk. Vanilla, SF Vanilla, Cinnamon Dolce, SF Cinnamon Dolce, Hazelnut, SF Hazelnut, Toffee Nut, Peppermint, Raspberry. All of these are served without whipped cream unless you ask for it. Seasonal Frappuccinos, such as Pumpkin Spice, Gingersnap, and Peppermint Mocha are also popular, and often contain special toppings, such as Pumpkin Spice powder or peppermint sugar sprinkles over peppermint whipped cream. (I wished we had those seasonal frappuchino’s here, I would love to try them! )

And to even speak off, we have bottled versions!:
