What Can I Get At Starbucks Frappuccino Happy Hour? The Possibilities Are Endless
#Bless all that is caffeinated and delicious, because there are infinite options for what you can get at Starbucks' Frappuccino Happy Hour. In case you missed the memo, Starbucks came out with a brand spanking new drink today, dubbed the Caramel Waffle Cone Frappuccino — and in celebration, they are bringing back Frappuccino Happy Hour from May 3 to May 15. That's 13 straight days of the majesty of half price fraps, y'all!
The deal is as simple as it is delicious: if you walk into a Starbucks between the hours of 3 p.m. and 5 p.m., any of their frappuccinos are half price. To sweeten the deal, if you're a My Starbucks Rewards member, you get your "hour" extended to 6 p.m. And here's the catch: THERE IS NO CATCH. You can get half-price off of any available frappuccino in any size and post about it smugly on social media on whatever platform you choose. I would worry about the power going to all of our heads, but their past Frappuccino Happy Hours have gone so well that I think we can all be collectively trusted.
So now the enormity of the pressure lies not in whether or not you should pick up that after work frap (because duh, you should), but in the question of which one will you choose?? Here are a myriad of options available to you during Frappuccino Happy Hour at Starbucks:
Caramel Waffle Cone Frappuccino
Um, HELLO there. This is Starbucks' newest menu addition and the reason for all of the happy hour hullabaloo. It's made of waffle cone flavored syrup, dark caramel sauce, whipped cream, and waffle cone pieces, and it's available through the summer while supplies last (and, thank our caffeinated gods, all the way through the Happy Hour promotion).
In the words of my ancestors, YASSSSSSSS. In April this tried-and-true summer fave hit Starbucks around the nation, to the delight of everyone who loves themselves a s'more but may or may not have set off a fire alarm trying to make one in their city apartment. This frozen version, complete with marshmallow-infused whipped cream, milk chocolate sauce, a graham cracker crumble, is a much safer alternative.
Caramelized Honey Frappuccino
The ~cool~ cousin of the recently released caramelized honey latte, this baby is mixed up with a sweet caramel honey sauce that's slow-cooked for 45 minutes, and has mini honey sprinkles on the top that, if I may be so bold, taste like an Oscars after party in your mouth.
Double Chocolaty Chip Crème Frappuccino
All the things that are good in this world are in this drink, and by all the things I mean chocolate, chocolate, and MORE CHOCOLATE. Spring is great for seasonal fruit and citrus flavors, sure, but let us never dismiss the most faithful flavor that is at our side and in our mugs all year long.
Whatever You Feel In Your Bold, Caffeinated Heart
To quote (a slight approximation of) Aladdin, "No one to tell us know, or which frap to pick, or say we're only dreeeeeaminnggg ..." You can literally order whatever frappuccino they have inventory for, and that baby is YOURS for half off. Follow your dreams. Mix your chocolate-based and nut-based sauces. REVEL IN THE GLORY OF INFINITY FRAP OPTIONS. Just make sure to get all your experimentin' in between May 3 and May 15!
