Starbucks Launches New Frappuccino Flavors

Starbucks and Oreo have a lot in common: They’re both consumed in a large number of American households, they’re giants in their respective industries and, most famously, they both pump out new flavors of their signature sweet every six months.

Just as the classic cookie company launches their new Brownie Batter Oreo, Starbucks came out with an even bigger announcement: there’s going to be a new addition to the Frappuccino menu. As part of a Frappuccino Flav-Off competition, the omnipresent coffee chain released a rainbow of six sips inspired by the (secret menu) custom combinations their fans have dreamed up in the 20-year lifespan of this frozen drink. The limited time frapps, which they’re dubbing Fan Flavor Frappuccinos, seem to be universally inspired by classic desserts. From now until June 30, you can sip your way through all of them (although you’re asking for a huge sugar high): Caramel Cocoa Cluster, Cinnamon Roll, Cotton Candy, Cupcake, Lemon Bar and Red Velvet Cake.

To see your favorite earn a permanent spot on the menu, you can vote for it between June 19 and June 30. The winner will be announced July 3, and for three days you’ll be able to enjoy the crowned drink for just $3 from 2-5 p.m. when you order a Grande.
