Starbucks Extra Carmel Coffee Frappucino

May 5, 2010

Carmel frappucinos at Starbucks are a guilty pleasure of mine. With the release of their new, create your own frappuccino I was sold. With sales slumping for the fraps they realized something needed to be done. What are they doing differently? Now fresh milk is being used, they eliminated high-fructose corn syrup, and higher-quality coffee now is going into the drink.
I went with the extra carmel coffee frappucino and was impressed. There was more flavor and it was much smoother than its predecessor. The best part was the lack of chunks of ice that usually clog up the straw and are just plain annoying. My only complaint is the strange after taste. It’s not very strong, but there is a distinct after taste of something that I can’t put my finger on.
