Starbucks' Pumpkin Spice Latté gets a lot of love, and rightly so — it's a delicious seasonal drink that encapsulates everything there is to love about fall, Halloween, and coffee. But, the PSL isn't the only drink that should be grabbing your coffee attention this fall: Starbucks' Salted Caramel Mocha Frappuccino is also back for fall, and honestly, it's probably the most underrated drink on the coffee giant's menu. This is worth getting excited over too!
I don't want to pit drinks against each other — they're all great in their own ways and both the PSL and Salted Caramel Mocha represent different things we all love about fall. But I do think that we should be giving this drink a little more attention. Like the PSL, it's also seasonal, and like the PSL, it's also delicious and autumnal. Also, caramel. What's not to love?
If you've never tried to Salted Caramel Mocha Frappuccino (um, if this describes you, get thee to a Starbucks now), here's what to expect from it upon first sip: According to the official Starbucks site, baristas begin with a mocha sauce base, then blend the drink with toffee nut syrup, milk, ice. It's then topped with sweetened whipped cream, and a caramel/turbinado sugar/sea salt drizzle mix. Literally, I'm drooling. It's sort of perfect for this time of year, when it's not quite so cold yet, but we're all still feeling the crispness of fall in the air.
The drink will be available all season, as long as supplies last. Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to go order 10 of them.
