Starbucks is rolling out the specialty drinks like clockwork this holiday season. Recently, the Get Around staff went out to try the current seasonal special, the White Chocolate Snow Frappuccino. This drink used the simple image of a sparkling winter snow as inspiration and jazzed up its traditional vanilla frappe to provide customers with a little something extra. Drizzled on top of the whipped cream is a milky white chocolate sauce, topped by a spray of pillowy mini-marshmallows, and silver edible pearls reminiscent of bells.
Overall, compared to the other creations that Starbucks served during this season, we were slightly disappointed by the White Chocolate Snow Frappuccino, particularly given the price. The drink makes a sweet decoration, but falls short on taste. The Frappuccino base tastes identical to the always in-stock Vanilla, and the drink doesn’t have much depth of flavor.
