Remember that unforgettable Unicorn Frappuccino that Starbucks released last year? Well, this year the company has something very different in mind! Instead of going the mystical route they are going a bit more….mysterious.
Starbucks latest limited drink, called the ‘Crystal Ball’ Frappuccino debuted on Thursday and will be predicting your future for the next four days.
The cold drink is a peach-flavored, crème-based Frappuccino decorated with turquoise sparkles to give a more marbled look – just like a crystal ball.Image: Starbucks
But here’s what transforms it into a magical potion — and not just for the company’s bottom line: The peach-flavored whipped cream is sprinkled with one of three colored candy gems, with each hue telling your fortune.
- Blue: Adventure is your destiny.
- Green: Get ready for some good luck to come your way.
- Purple: Expect magic, wonder and enchantment in your future.
In addition to the prepped drink, the drink will be decorated with colored gems on top, but the candies come in opaque shakers. Each barista has three of them — one color per container — and will choose a shaker to apply the finishing touch.
A 12-ounce beverage costs $4.95 to $5.25 depending on the market, according to the company.
The Crystal Ball Frappuccino — made with whole milk and whipped cream, which is the standard recipe — is 270 calories and contains 11 grams of fat and 37 grams of sugar.
Well, I’m certainly trying one!
