4 Fancy Starbucks Frappucinos
Oh my — it's pie
Now you can get your favorite cherry pie in frappucino form. And yes, it comes complete with an actual pie crust on top instead of a lid.
A lotta panna cotta
Elevate your frappucino game by trying the Summer Berry Panna Cotta flavor that gives you actual panna cotta pudding in the bottom, then layers of berries on top.
Jelly in a frappucino? Sure, why not. The Mango Jelly frappucino from Starbucks gives you peach jelly mixed with mangos, peaches, strawberries, and oranges. Tropical delight.
Throw a pretzel on it
And how about some popcorn while you're at it? The Pop-zel Coffee Frappucino is one of the rare coffee-based flavors and rounds out its taste with a pop of popcorn and pretzel syrups.
