Starbucks have released a festive drink that has already been branded by one reviewer as “the ugly Christmas sweater of coffee drinks”.
Sounds harsh, right?
But the idea of slurping on Starbuck’s new Festive Fruitcake Frappuccino just isn’t doing it for us!

I mean, fruitcake would HAVE to be the least popular Christmas treat?
In a move to embrace the Christmas spirit, Starbucks launched the limited edition Fruitcake Frappuccino in US and Canadian stores and it’s available until December 18th.
the Fruitcake Frappuccino AKA Starbucks hates it’s partners.

The drink consists of a hazelnut crème Frappuccino with blended dried fruit, spiced with cinnamon, topped with whipped cream and caramel, and then sprinkled with matcha.
Starbucks call the drink “a fruitcake too tasty to re-gift”.
Is this @Starbucks Fruitcake Frappucino for real???

We’re yet to spot the drink on Aussie shores, the closest we have right now is a festive gingerbread latte drink.
