Here's what Starbucks' Christmas Tree Frappuccino really tastes like

Here's what Starbucks' Christmas Tree Frappuccino really tastes like

While it may seem odd to want a cold drink when the temps are dropping, once you see it you'll understand.

The drink is only available now through Monday at participating locations. The flavor wasn't so overpowering that it conflicted with the peppermint, and the crunch and sweetness of the caramel and candied cranberries actually straight up led me to the kitchen to grab a spoon and eat the "tree" write off of the frapp.

The "Christmas Tree" elements of the Frappuccino come into play with the green Matcha whipped cream.

Finally, on top, they put a strawberry "tree topper". So head on down to Starbucks and drive your local barista nuts.

Instagram and Twitter have already been flooded with images and reviews of the limited drink since it hit stores this morning.




Starbucks is one of the biggest fans of the holiday season.

It just wouldn't be the holidays without another super sweet - and slightly complicated - winter themed-beverage from Starbucks.

First we tasted a unicorn.

If you don't want to courageous the cold (drink), there are of course other beverages at Starbucks that'll provide you with your holiday fix.

If you want to try the Christmas Tree Frappuccino, Rumsey says you absolutely should, and you shouldn't feel bad about it, either. You can also ask for skim milk and no whipped cream to cut back on the calories but, again, it's not a biggie if you go all-in. It was a fun looking holiday drink with a minty sweetness to it.
