Starbucks New Soy Strawberries and Crème Frappuccino Blended Beverage Taste

3

Couple days ago, Starbucks launched However-You-Want-It Frappuccino blended beverages to their customers. It allows customers to create customized drinks in many different ways as they want to. With the new way of ordering a beverage, Starbucks also created few new combination of Frappuccino blended beverages. Besides the Soy Strawberries, Extra Coffee Caramel and the Mocha Light were also introduced to their Frappuccino blended beverage section. In order to promote their newly beverages, Starbucks created Happy Hour for customers to try out their new blended beverages and all blended beverages are half-priced during the Happy Hour.

You can smell the refreshing Strawberry aroma coming from this blended beverage and as for the taste, the first few sips you can actually tell the difference between the strawberry flavor and the soy milk. However, as you sip more, you will feel that this is way too sweet even with a lot of ice added into it and it just becomes sweet strawberry. The dominate taste is the sweetness rather than strawberry flavor or soymilk. So, it is very difficult to taste the soymilk in this drink and if you taste it, it’s way different than the ones that are in Asian supermarket. Also, I think the taste of real strawberry blended with ice is better than so called naturally-flavored strawberry sauce because you can actually taste the freshness of the strawberry flavor. Since this is a crème based drink, the drink will still seem very thick even after all the ice has been melted. For the aftertaste, there’s a feeling of dryness in your mouth after you’ve finished the drink.

I’m not sure what kind of soy milk does Starbucks use now days, but before they were using silk soy milk. Also, the soy milk they use in America is different from the soymilk they use in Canada. For this order, I really didn’t customize it and just order it by default. Maybe next time I should change it since it too sweet. This drink is perfect for those who love strawberry flavor and sweet drinks. You can check out the nutrition for this drink in the below information section. Personally, I think it’s a little bit too sweet for me. Not sure if the newly blended beverages are offered nation wide.

    Oh and for the fraps, I think right now Barnes and Noble has a buy one get one free coupon on Starbucks Frappucinos. It’s only good at Barnes stores though.

    It expires soon I think as well.
