The most iconic summer beverages are here you help you beat the heat!
11 June 2019: It isn’t the start of the summer until Starbucks announces its summer menu and the return of their iconic beverages.
Starbucks’ blended beverages started their journey with the launch of a cold, slushy drink made using a soft-swirl machine called the Frappuccino. The idea was to bring in non-coffee drinkers as new customers in the peak of summer, looking for something cold!
Starbucks subsequently introduced the now famous Caramel Frappuccino, Frappuccino Blended Crème beverage and the Frappuccino Light blended beverage. Today, Starbucks serves Frappuccino blended beverages across the world and offers more than 36,000 different drink combinations.
To celebrate the summer season, Starbucks is bringing back the S’mores Frappuccino due to popular demand. Inspired by the nostalgic experience of roasting s’mores over a crackling campfire, S’mores Frappuccino combines marshmallow-infused whipped cream with milk chocolate sauce and a creamy blend of vanilla, coffee, milk and ice. This is then finished off with more marshmallowy whipped cream and a graham cracker crumble.
Rana Shaheen, Regional Communications and CSR Manager for Starbucks Coffee MENA, said: “Since we debuted the Frappuccinos, they have been a fan favourite with customers who love celebrating the start of the summer season with this delicious, blended beverage. We’re delighted to see the return of the S’mores Frappuccino to our summer menu along with two new iced tea infusions, which are the perfect thirst quenchers on a hot day. At Starbucks we are committed to introducing innovative new beverages to cater to our consumers’ ever-changing tastes and demands.”
Also available this summer is Peach Citrus Green Tea and Strawberry Black Tea. Botanical blends are combined with fruits and blended with liquid cane sugar and Starbucks’ signature Teavana® Tea to make these pick me-up coolers, which are perfect on a hot afternoon.
The refreshing and uplifting Starbucks summer menu is currently available across all stores in the Middle East and North Africa region for a limited time only.
