Starbucks released a limited-edition Cherry Blossom Frappuccino just in time for Spring, so we knew we wanted to try it ASAP. While its name is inspired by Japanese cherry blossoms that mark the beginning of the season, don't be fooled — there's no cherry flavor in it. It's a strawberries and cream Frappuccino with white chocolate sauce, matcha drizzle, whipped cream, and a sprinkle of matcha powder on top. Sounds amazing, but how does it actually taste?
Like most Frappuccinos, it's really sweet. If you'd rather be drinking a milkshake than coffee, this is definitely the drink for you, but if your idea of a morning pick-me-up involves espresso, it's pretty clear you should skip this one. Overall, most people in our office who tried this drink loved it, and a few comments include, "Best Frappuccino I've had," "It's basically a strawberry milkshake," and "Sweet god." Ultimately, it reminds us of the Strawberry Creme Savers Hard Candy we had as a kid (you know, the candy your grandma always has on hand), but the matcha gives it an upgraded twist. If you're suddenly dying to try it, you have until March 20, the first official day of Spring.
