Starbucks is back at it with a new blended sugar-bomb that they hope will conjure nostalgic joy this summer. Their newest Frappuccino evokes carnival fun, State Fairs, and summer classics. Get ready to dive into strawberries, whipped cream, and funnel cake pieces.

Meet: The Strawberry Funnel Cake Frappuccino

This blended beverage features Frappuccino® Roast coffee, milk and ice blended with funnel-cake flavored syrup, and layers of strawberry puree and whipped cream. The finishing touch is a sprinkle of crunchy funnel cake pieces dusted with powdered sugar.

“We wanted to capture the joy of this time of year, and we thought about those simple pleasures that really encapsulate summer. That led us to state fairs and funnel cake – just wanting to channel that sense of carefree fun. I always love strawberries because they’re so summery. You get the juicy taste of strawberry, the decadent whipped cream, the sweet and slightly savory dough, and then the powdered sugar. I feel that’s a quintessential funnel cake.”

- Sara Bennett, Senior Product Developer
