Starbucks is killing it again with a new, delicious frappuccino flavor! The Cherry Blossom Frappuccino is available for a limited time only, so you’re going to need to head out ASAP to grab one! Let’s learn five important, delicious facts about the drink before you make up your mind!
Does anything say spring better than an icy, yummy frappuccino? Starbucks unveiled a brand new flavor on March 15, and the Cherry Blossom Frappuccino looks amazing. The new drink was created to celebrate the beginning of spring, and we think it’s the perfect treat for the beautiful end to winter! Click through for five facts about the new frappuccino!
This is the first time the Cherry Blossom Frappuccino has been available in the United States
Japanese Starbucks customers have been able to snag the delicious sweet treat since 2010, but 2016 marks the first year that it arrived in the United States. Lucky us!
There aren’t actually any cherry blossoms involved
No, you’re not going to gobble down any flowers in your drink. The new frappuccino is a blend of strawberries and cream, swirled with a white chocolate sauce and matcha drizzle, and topped with whipped cream and matcha. Yum!
It’s only available for a very limited time
You’re only able to grab a Cherry Blossom Frappuccino for a mere five days! The drink was unveiled on March 5, and will be sold until March 20, commemorating the first day of spring. You’re going to want to run to the nearest Starbucks as quickly as you can!
The drink is inspired by Japanese Sakura tradition
Sakura (cherry blossoms) are the Japanese national flower, a symbol of renewal and simplicity. For thousands of years, families and friends have gathered under sakura trees to visit and have picnics as the cherry blossoms begin to bloom. The tradition signifies the beginning of spring, and now the start of the new school year, too!
Japan offers even more cherry blossom drinks
If you’re in Japan, you can also order the Sakura Blossom & Strawberry Latte and the Sakura Blossom & Strawberry Frappuccino Blended Crème. We want to go to there!
