To continue with my obsession of Starbucks frappuccinos, I tried the coffee frappuccino with cream and coffee jelly – and was actually a little disappointed. I mean sure, I liked it, but compared to the caramel or mocha frappuccinos, this one lacked. It was the second time I'd gone for the new coffee jelly that Starbucks is advertising, and I still liked it, but the frappuccino didn't seem blended right. All of the jelly was at the bottom, the cream all on top and a bland coffee flavour in the middle.
The frappuccino was still sweet and cold, but was only creamy on the top, although the coffee jelly was still an appreciated addition. The jelly was smooth enough to go right up the straw and battle through the thick cream. The coffee jelly had more coffee taste than the milk. I went for the venti size as usual but as I wasn't devouring it with love, the size was fine. So, yes, I prefer my mocha and caramel frappuccinos over the coffee one, thank you.
Starbucks offers many flavoured frappuccinos, and you can add extra coffee, java chips, chocolate powder, cream, caramel syrup, and of course, the new coffee jelly, if you want to further indulge. Starbucks also offers flavoured teas, green tea, iced beverages, coffee and espresso as well as savoury delights, bakery food, sandwiches, fruit salad and cakes. You can buy your goodies to take away or you can sit down on the comfy oversized armchairs and listen to soothing music whilst consuming the Starbucks goodness.
The coffee frappuccino with cream and coffee jelly cost me $7.40, the coffee jelly part just 70c. So head into your nearest Starbucks, grab your frappuccino of choice and add some coffee jelly. You'll be pleasantly surprised.
