Calling all Starbucks fans: the summer menu has arrived, and it’s taking us back to the good old days. From July 7, you can awaken your taste buds with two new Frappuccino mixes: Banana Split and Raspberry Passion. Built with layers to create a striped effect, they pop to get some space on your Instagram feed.
While nostalgic Y2K fashion might be the style trend of the summer and the latest “Barbie” film set photos have us dreaming of our childhood dolls, now is the time for the drinks to get the retro treatment. The new Banana Split Frappuccino mixed drink, inspired by the old-fashioned dessert, features layers of caramelized banana sauce, coffee and mocha, topped with whipped cream and a drizzle of mocha. Yes, we are already drooling.
If you prefer a more acidic taste, opt for the Passionfruit Frappuccino Frappuccino mixed drink. It’s raspberries and passion fruit on a vanilla ice cream base, topped with sprinkles of pink berries. The striped effect is also made for a selfie. The summer menu is officially launched on Thursday, but Starbucks Rewards members can get exclusive early access.
Additionally, both new beverages can be made with one of five dairy alternatives at no additional cost. For a more long-lasting experience, Starbucks also has a domed lid cold mug available to buy, and you can get 25 pence off your order.
Earn your Starbucks stripes this summer and grab a £3.65 treat, available across the UK while supplies last.
