As always, Starbucks is making the holiday season just a little bit more… holiday-er. This year, they are doing so in several ways. First, they just introduced a brand-new Frappucino flavor: Fruitcake. Yep, you read that right. A Fruitcake Frappucino.
The drink is made with Hazelnut Crème Frappuccino. Next, it is blended with dried fruit (of course) as well as winter spices like cinnamon. A dollop of whipped cream and caramel dots top the drink, followed by a light sprinkling of matcha powder. What does it taste like?
Well, fruitcake. Shocker, right? No, really. Taste-testers (such as those over at TODAY) are comparing it to “pulverized fruitcake” while others say it tastes kind of like a Christmas cookie. Either way, it’s definitely a sweet treat.
And that’s not even the best part! When you order a Fruitcake Frapp today only (Dec. 16), you also get a FREE ugly sweater cozy to go with it. That’s right. Your drink will come with an adorably ugly sweater to keep your hands warm while you sip on it.
How awesome is that? Starbucks is ingenious, because not only is the drink a must-try, but the cozy sweater is just BEGGING for a picture. Starbucks-lovers across the country have been Instagramming the cup like crazy. Pro Tip: Make sure your mani is on point before you snap a shot, just like these frapp-fans did:
But, here’s the catch: The drink is ONLY available until December 18. So do not, I repeat, do NOT sleep on this deal. Additionally, the cozy offer is only guaranteed today while supplies last. So if you want to get your hands on one, you better book it down to your local ‘bucks before they get snatched up.
You can also buy a collection of gingerbread cookies to go with your drink. The little guys are wearing “ugly sweaters” as well, and they make the perfect complement to your frosty frap.
