The latest summer flavor at Starbucks is far out. The company announced on Wednesday, July 10 that a new limited-time Frappuccino beverage is taking the unicorn trend to another level with tie-dye colors.
The Tie-Dye Frappuccino is made with a tropical Crème Frappuccino with dashes of powder in yellow, red, and blue (which gets its color from red beet, turmeric, and spirulina) that makes a vibrant mix of colors. The beverage is then topped with whipped cream and a final dusting of colored powder.
“We wanted to create something that celebrates summer and really conveys it both visually and through flavor within the beverage,” says Paloma Carrington-Bataller, Product Development Manager at Starbucks. “We knew it had to make you smile at first sight and our Tie-Dye Frappuccino does all this! It’s summer in a cup and something everyone can relate to; it takes you back to sunny warm days of summer spent at camp or with friends and family.”
The Tie-Dye Frappuccino is only available for a few days at Starbucks locations across the U.S. and Canada. The beverage follows in the footsteps of previous colorful Frappuccinos Starbucks has released, including Crystal Ball and Unicorn versions.
