Pop quiz: What goes better with coffee than chocolate cake? TRICK QUESTION! The answer is nothing. Our favorite coffee giant knows this — kind of like how they know everything — so they've answered our prayers: Starbucks is putting chocolate cake on their Frappuccinos now, making the wildest fantasies of millions of people come true. One catch, though: all of these people are Japanese, because the cake-and-coffee combo is only happening in Japan. (WTF, Starbucks?)
As of now, Sbux has two flavors with the cake topping: a matcha flavor shot and the Coffee Shot. Popsugar says the matcha flavor shot is blended with almonds and topped with a chocolate cake disk, matcha green tea sauce, whipped cream, and green tea powder. I want all of these things in my mouth. You're supposed to mix the cake into the drink while you enjoy it, which sounds amazing — although I'm not opposed to eating the chocolate cake by itself, because... it's chocolate cake.
Here in the U.S., we've got plenty of delicious flavors of Frappuccinos that will satisfy your sweet tooth (and even your chocolate craving), including the Java Chip, Double Chocolaty Chip Creme, and Strawberries & Cream Frappuccinos; but nothing has been topped off with cake (yet).
But really, there have been many Sbux creations that were never on the menu and you had to order simply by listing off the ingredients — like when the Pink Drink first came out, we sometimes asked the friendly barista to mix us a Starbucks Strawberry Acai Refresher and coconut milk. So, is there really anything wrong with going through the drive-thru and asking for your favorite Frapp with a piece of cake thrown on top?
For now, you'll most likely have better luck ordering a bakery item and a Frap and combining them in the car when no one is looking. (No judgment here!) Aside from that, it looks like we'll probably have to wait and see if chocolate cake-covered Frappuccinos make their way to the U.S. market in the near future. Fingers crossed!
