Starbucks is known for its incredible coffee drinks and interesting flavors with an eye-catching flair. Now that the holiday season has arrived, the popular coffee chain has released its long list of holiday drinks, including the ever-popular peppermint mocha and even some new holiday favorites.
One thing about the Starbucks drinks is that the menu is also different in other countries, where the drink options and favors are diverse and even more outrageous sometimes. This holiday season, Starbucks in Japan has created a Santa boots inspired frappuccino for its customers.
This new holiday drink takes inspiration from the jolly, red-suited man who delivers presents on Christmas eve all around the world. But this drink, which is on the regular menu and is not on the secret menu, also has an additional twist. This Santa Boots frappuccino is actually topped with potato chips.
Following the recent food trend of mixing salty and sweet, this frappuccino mixes sweet flavors and salty crunch. The base of this drink is chocolate flavor, with chocolate chips and added chocolate sauce for even more flavor. Then the drink is surrounded by the crushed potato chips, topped with creamy whipped cream topping, and sprinkled with bits of red-coated chocolate candies.
The Santa Boots frappuccino is available for a limited time from December 4 to December 25, or until it’s sold out. The drink will be available in the regular Starbucks drink sizes, and retails for a similar price as well. There are currently no plans to release this drink in the United States, although the ingredients should be easy enough to replicate for creative customers and helpful baristas. The making of popular drinks is a pretty viral social media sensation right now in the United States, and I’m sure loyal customers will give it a try.
