New Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino (Starbucks) By @Cinabar
It's a strange drink that combines the flavours of autumn with the temperature of summer, but here we have the Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino new on the menu at Starbucks. As it turns out having an unseasonably warm September means this ice blended drink really does hit the spot right now.
I ordered one on a warm afternoon, and the drink arrived topped with whipped cream, and dusted with a mix of cinnamon and spices. I had some chocolate coated marshmallows on the side, as an extra treat.
I had a sip of the spiced drink and enjoyed it. The flavour was very well balanced, it was sweet, but the coffee and spices went well together. There was plenty of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. The flavour was somewhere between hot cross buns and spiced gingerbread. As a cinnamon fan, this drink was lovely, like having a cinnamon and spices milkshake, which I thoroughly enjoyed.
My only issue is as the nights draw in and the weather cools, I think I’ll be switching to this drinks big brother, the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte. Something hot to keep me warm over the autumn.
