STARBUCKS CRYSTAL BALL FRAPPUCCINO
I can see the future, it is full of green and cream and a drink and a coffee chain,… well no, I cannot tell the future but this weeks drink from Starbucks is giving us lots of mystical and predicting the future vibes. Welcome to the world of the Starbucks Crystal Ball Frappuccino.
The drink was announced in 2018 and the beverage came with some mystical features used to describe and promote it. The drink is made of a peach tea infusion and topped with a marbled gem drizzle and peach whipped cream. The customer then has the option as to what ‘candy gems’ are placed on top. The purple ones signify ‘magic, wonder and enchantment’, blue ‘ adventure’ and green signifies ‘luck’.
The limited edition drink was released with predominantly positive reviews online with customers praising the peach flavour with some people stating how good it actually was.
