National Caramel Day? More like National Cavity Day.
To celebrate this important holiday on April 5, Starbucks is bringing back an alleged “fan favorite” (according to a news release): The Caramel Cocoa Cluster Frappuccino.
Ingredients in this sugary blended conoction incude toffee nut syrup, Frappuccino® Roast Coffee, milk and ice. It’s topped with caramel sauce, whipped cream and a drizzle of mocha sauce.
According to Starbucks nutritional information, a 16 oz. order of the saccarine drink has all of 68 grams of sugar. With the average sugar cube clocking in at about 3 grams, that’s roughly 23 sugar cubes in your Grande beverage.
The Caramel Cocoa Cluster Frappuccino was initially created during a contest last July in which Starbucks fans voted on potential new flavors, ranging from Cotton Candy, Lemon Bar and Red Velvet Cake. The Caramel Cocoa Cluster Frappuccino will be back on the menu from April 5-11.
That week, Starbucks will also be offering “sweet receipts.” Customers who make a purchase at Starbucks before 2 p.m. can bring their receipts back for $1 off an afternoon bakery item, just for that extra sugar boost.
