Starbucks Caramel Cocoa Cluster Frappuccino Is $3 In The Afternoon Starting July 3, So Probably Pick Up Two
Remember when Starbucks launched six new Frappuccino flavors all at once, and it was basically the best day of your life? Well, Frapp fans have spent the month of June voting on which new blended coffee beverage they like the best, and they've reached a verdict: the Caramel Cocoa Cluster Frappuccino wins Starbucks' Fan Flav-Off competition, and to celebrate, customers can get their hands on a grande size of the victorious drink for just $3 between the hours of 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. July 3 through July 6. Is this incredible news? Or is this incredible news?
If you recall, Starbucks launched its Fan Flav-Off contest earlier this summer in honor of the Frappuccino's 20th birthday, introducing six new flavors to its menu: Caramel Cocoa Cluster, Cinnamon Roll, Cupcake, Lemon Bar, Cotton Candy, and Red Velvet. The flavors were all inspired by secret menu drink requests baristas hear most often, and coffee lovers were encouraged to vote for their favorite new flavor online.
More than 1.4 million people voted, and the competition was stiff. Caramel Cocoa Cluster, Cupcake, and Cinnamon Roll (trying saying that three times fast) all made it to the final three, but in the end, Team CCC won out. A caffeinated coffee beverage made with toffee nut syrup, caramel sauce, and topped with whipped cream and mocha drizzle, it's no wonder the Caramel Cocoa Cluster was the clear crowd-pleaser. Seriously, what's not to love here?
As for the other flavors? You'll still be able to find them on Starbucks' secret menu — but the Caramel Cocoa Cluster Frapp is really where it's at. It's the perfect cure for when your next afternoon energy slump hits, and at $3 a pop, you might as well pick up two... right?
