I am interrupting the previously scheduled hot sauce heat competition to talk about Starbucks releasing their Crystal Ball Frappuccino. I heard about this drink yesterday morning on the Elvis Duran and the Morning Show. It’s my favorite radio show. I listen to it every day. Froggy informed me of the new drink and I had to get it.
First, let me give you a little background on this drink. This description is taken from the Starbucks.com website “A mystical, swirling peach infusion topped with peach flavored whipped cream, turquoise sprinkles and one of three different candy gems that reveal your fortune (not even your barista knows what your future holds). Order, gaze, then all will be told. And while we can’t predict what your gems will reveal, we can tell you this drink is only here for a few short days.” Basically what this means is Starbucks is releasing a super sweet and sugary drink for 4 days and creating a demand. Everyone one will want one and post Instagram pics of the drink (including me). This is an amazing idea on their part because it is giving them free advertising.
I went into my local Starbucks on Fort Campbell at 8:30 am. I was so excited that I could’t contain myself. I placed my order and waited patiently for the barista to make my drink.
I had a mini photo shoot outside with my drink. This one is my favorite.
I didn’t actually try the drink until I got into my car.
The drink itself is not too bad if you like really sweet and sugary drinks. It tastes like peach and is refreshing. It’s not something I would order for anything other than the picture but I am glad that I tried it.
Each drink will have different colored candy gems. The colors will predict your future. Blue means adventure is predicted in your future. Green is for luck and purple means magic, wonder, and enchantment are in your future. My color was blue. My whole life is a giant adventure.
I can’t wait until Starbucks releases another limited edition drink. I really do enjoy getting these drinks.
