Starbucks Serves Up a Christmas Tree in a Cup

Hot on the heels of the Unicorn Frappuccino, which had the internet exploding with a rainbow of reactions back in April, Starbucks is at it again with another novelty drink. The holiday-themed Christmas Tree Frappuccino features a swirl of mocha and peppermint, a green whipped topping with ornamental sprinkles and strings of caramel, and a strawberry on top.

This festive frap will have fans frothing for only a short window of five days (December 7-11)—during which time it’s sure to brew up a big pot of marketing buzz for the much beloved (and often maligned) coffee chain.
