Starbucks Is Rolling Out A Christmas Tree Frappuccino Tomorrow

Starbucks is releasing a 'peppermint mocha creme' Christmas tree frappuccino

Starbucks Christmas Tree Frappuccinos Are Here — But Only For A Few Days

And this morning, I bring to you a gift for all my fellow cold drink-loving readers who probably feel a little left out this time of year because ordering an iced peppermint mocha from Starbucks isn't almost as fun when it doesn't come in a fun holiday cup.

The minty drink is made out of a peppermint and mocha blended cream base, while the whipped cream is mixed with matcha powder to give it a colorful touch.

The blended frozen drink is, perhaps, more suited for the Los Angeles crowd, than the wintry New Yorker or Montrealer.

Starting today, December 7, Starbucks will be selling these festive drinks at participating Starbucks locations in the USA and Canada.

The "Christmas Tree" elements of the Frappuccino come into play with the green Matcha whipped cream.

If you dare to sample this festive concoction, you can do so now at your local Starbucks. "I stopped on the way to work to get the Christmas tree frappuchino [sic] I don't even like Starbucks", wrote one Twitter user.

The over-the-top drink is just the latest in a succession of Instagrammable Starbucks Frappuccino, which have all caught the attention of fans with a sweet tooth and a smartphone. This drink, however, breaks from Unicorn Frappuccino tradition in one crucial way: It actually tastes good.

The sugar is Keatley's biggest concern - at 50 grams a drink, it's double the recommended daily limit from the American Heart Association - but having the drink once or twice isn't going to torpedo your health goals, she says. You can also ask for skim milk and no whipped cream to cut back on the calories but, again, it's not a biggie if you go all-in.

Brace yourself for the Instagram posts-the vibrant Frapp is made to look like a Christmas tree.
