Now we have yet another reason life in Australia seems pretty chill. It’s the Starbucks Caramel Popcorn Pretzel Frappuccino, the newest addition to the coffee chain’s famous Frappuccino line, incorporating, you guessed it, a blend of popcorn and pretzels. Call it the Starbucks Shaggy Rogers, if you’re so inclined.
“Crunchy caramel popcorn, salty pretzels and ribbons of buttery caramel drizzle” is how the Starbucks Caramel Popcorn Pretzel Frappuccino was described on the official Starbucks Australia Instagram account, and the drink reportedly also includes something called “Pop’zel syrup.” It’s amazing what modern syrup technology allows innovators to create these days, truly.
Like every other beverage sold under the Frappuccino label, the Starbucks Caramel Popcorn Pretzel Frappuccino is essentially a milkshake you can drink at any time without feeling like some kind of decadent ice cream boy. Stay tuned, perhaps the drink will make its way from Australian shores to a wider area of availability sometime in the future.
