Starbucks Pokemon Go Frappuccino Review

Read This Before You Try the Starbucks Pokémon Go Frappuccino

Starbucks-lovers and Pokémon Go players everywhere are ecstatic about the two companies' new collaboration, which includes a Pokémon Go Frappuccino, of course. The vibrant frozen drink is a Vanilla Bean Frappuccino blended with raspberry syrup and freeze-dried whole blackberries, which give the beverage its deep purple hue. Is it really worth heading to your nearest PokéStop Starbucks for? Here's how it really tastes.

We were pleasantly surprised that the Frappuccino is not overly sweet, given its sugary ingredients. It's a refreshing afternoon treat made without coffee or espresso, so you can order it without risking the caffeine-induced jitters. The one thing to brace yourself for is the gritty texture that comes from the blackberries — it leaves a slightly unpleasant consistency in your mouth after every sip. At first we weren't sure if the texture resulted from the iciness, but we soon labeled the fruit as the culprit. To avoid this, you could order the same drink with freeze-dried strawberries instead of blackberries for a smoother sip.

PS, the Frappuccino is only available at certain Starbucks stores (you can call yours and ask in advance), but you can realistically order this item any time at any Starbucks, because there are no off-the-menu ingredients. If you order a Vanilla Bean Frappuccino with raspberry syrup and freeze-dried blackberries, you can have it any time you want, no PokéStop necessary.
