Starbucks Brings New Strawberry Honey Blossom Créme Frappuccino to the Table
ASIA - Starbucks is looking to match brighter days with its newest addition. Joining the line-up is its new Strawberry Honey Blossom Créme Frappuccino, a pastel beauty that perfectly coordinates with springtime color themes.
As of February 27th, the sought-after drink is only available at Starbucks Thailand and Starbucks Hong Kong for a limited time, so for those of us not able to get our hands on one during the window of time, we will have to keep our heart-shaped eyes at bay. There have, however, been reports of its creamy goodness on social media, according to Bustle. The drink’s strawberry and vanilla crème sits between layers of honey-flavored whipped cream, and freeze-dried strawberries are woven throughout. To top it off, the drink dons a crunchy layer of pink rice puffs and sprinkles to add an extra dose of dreamy pizzazz.
The company turned to the power of pink to create this beverage, “inspired by the pastel pink of cherry blossom petals,” according to a Starbucks rep.
This isn’t the only produce-tuned item the chain released to a limited audience. According to Bustle, the company also released its Butterfly Pea Flower Lemonade Cold Brew to stores in Asia.
The Starbucks Hong Kong Facebook page described the drink as, “The magic flurry of spring in the air, captured in the new Strawberry Honey Blossom Créme Frappuccino and puddings!”
The flavors at play are a perfect storm of sweet, sour, creamy, icy, and cool—and let’s face it, the drink is ready for its close-up for social media-crazed consumers spreading the word of its berry beautiful tastes when these warmer breezes roll through.
Will this newest bold concept make its way to the States or venture outside of the two regions in which it is currently being enjoyed? How will this trend inspire other companies to create their own take on the refreshing blend? AndNowUKnow will continue to report!
