Starbucks Reveals an Avocado Frappuccino in South Korea
SOUTH KOREA - Despite Starbucks churning out new drink ideas of late like the Unicorn Frappuccino, Mango Dragonfruit Refresher, Strawberry Very Much Frappuccino, and more, nothing has been able to decrown the Pumpkin Spice Latte as the cornerstone of seasonal sensations. But honestly, the PSL might meet its match with the ABF. Grab your passports, summer officially means a trip to South Korea to get our hands on Starbucks’ seasonal menu item, the Avocado Blended Frappuccino.
The Starbucks Korea website describes the drink with this note: “Find the best way to enjoy the most trendy fruit of avocado in Starbucks! The visuals that seem to enjoy the whole avocado are fun to see.”
While the Avocado Blended—a take on Starbucks’ classic Frappuccino—is not a new item since it first hit South Korea’s coffee market in 2015, the drink didn’t start serving looks until this season, with the coffee chain recently giving it a makeover for its June 26 relaunch. Now, the Avocado Blended actually resembles its namesake, with a dark green circle around the rim—an homage to the peel—and a chocolate ball acting as a faux pit.
According to Bustle, the Avocado Blended is only available in South Korea locations, so I will be circulating an online petition to bring the Avocado Blended to the States—keep your eyes peeled!
