Starbucks often rolls out insane new Frappuccino flavors (though we’d argue not often enough anymore!!), all vying for a spot in the chain’s permanent rotation, which made us wonder: Where’s the love for the original flavors?
The love is right here, dammit. Countless dollars and eye-rolls from baristas later, we sampled them all to come up with the true top 10. You could debate it with us, but you’d only be wasting your breath.
10. Strawberries & Crème
It smells like those cupcake dolls from the early ’90s—you know, the ones that looked like cupcakes, until you flipped the liner and transformed them into frosting-bedecked Southern belles—and tastes like a liquified strawberry shortcake.
9. Pumpkin Spice
Nothing says fall is coming quite like the PSL, and in Frappuccino form, it’s more like a blended pumpkin pie a la mode. There’s a reason it’s become the ultimate thirst-quencher (and object of obsession) for Basic B*tches everywhere.
The original. It’s like a Frosty that’s been sitting next to an espresso machine, capturing just the tiniest whiff of java flavor.
The gateway drink of caffeine-addled tweens everywhere. You start out hating coffee, then convince yourself mocha’s okay—and by the end of college, you’re swigging unsweetened iced coffee more than water.
6. Green Tea
If you like green tea mochi and matcha-flavored things, you’ll love this smooth, slightly-tropical-but-mostly-sweet treat. If you don’t love the tea, you might find it just a tad too earthy.
5. Java Chip
Among chocolate lovers, this drink quickly replaced mocha as the winner of their hearts. However, if you’re big on texture, you may not like the chocolate bits studded throughout the drink (which, fair warning, will invariably get stuck in your teeth).
Is it weird that Delish’s tasters rated the coffee flavor stronger in this Frappuccino than the straight-up coffee one? That and the ribbons of buttery caramel topping the drink won us over.
3. Vanilla Bean
As one taster said, “it’s like a vanilla milkshake, only not as heavy!” We’ll drink to that.
2. Oprah Cinnamon Chai
This one’s more of a #TBT, as it’s a bit hard to find these days. While one argued that it’s too sweet, fans of cinnamon and ginger loved this drink’s gentle spices. Plus, every cup gives back to charity—and it gives you a chance to channel your inner media mogul.
This drink is as complex as booking a multi-destination flight online—only 100 times more enjoyable. First, you taste the marshmallow syrup, then the chocolate-espresso milkshake-esque core, and then, if you dip a finger into the whipped cream, you get a smidge of crumbled graham cracker. It’s basically summertime in a cup, and we wish it’d stick around all year long.
Though it’s surely not an easy one for baristas to make, it’s wildly popular on Instagram and strikes the perfect balance between sweet and sweet. All hail!
Caramel Ribbon Crunch
Who doesn’t love layers of dark caramel swirl embedded into a drink? The crunchy caramelized topping doesn’t hurt either.
Sure, it’s a limited-time offering, but just one sip makes you feel like all is right in the world. Like, you know, there’s snow on the ground and a fire going strong and every meal in your near future is chocolate-covered and/or deep-fried. Mmm.
