Can You Guess the Flavor of This Inky Starbucks Frappuccino?
It’s inspired by new year’s greetings.
Following on from its selection of Christmas-themed beverages, Starbucks has moved onto releasing limited-edition beverages to celebrate the new year. The first special we’ve spotted is the Goma Goma Goma Frappuccino, which translates from Japanese as sesame.
The icy, milky base is offset with black sesame sauce which resembles ink swirled into the drink, inspired by traditional calligraphic greetings cards sent in Japan to welcome in the new year. Its then topped with a flurry of soft whipped cream, drizzled with honey and black sesame sauce and topped with crisp sesame seeds.
