Starbucks Crystal Ball Frappuccino Taste Test
The Fates Have Spoken, and Starbucks's Crystal Ball Frappuccino Is a Real Winner
Starbucks's latest concoction is here, y'all, and dare I say this is the best of the fun Frappuccino flavors yet? The Crystal Ball Frappuccino is available now through March 26, and trust me when I say this is one you don't want to miss, despite some of the mixed emotions the drink is garnering.
The Crystal Ball Frappuccino starts with a crème Frappuccino base that is infused with peach flavor and turquoise sparkles that create an enchanting marbling effect — just like a crystal ball, get it? But the real magic happens when the peach-flavored whipped cream is sprinkled with candy gems. The sprinkles will read your fortune, so to speak. If the sprinkles turn blue, you're destined for adventure. If they turn green, you may just get lucky. And if you get purple sprinkles, wonder and enchantment are headed your way.
Truly, this is probably my favorite Frappuccino Starbucks has ever pulled together, solely because of its simplicity and rich peach flavor. As a self-proclaimed peach fanatic, this one hits the mark. The drink tastes like a straight-up peaches and cream smoothie, and while mine wasn't as brightly colored as some of the photos I've seen, I didn't feel like it was missing anything.
As for my sprinkles, I got green, so if you'll excuse me, I'm about to go buy seven lucky lottery tickets and start planning my next vacation.
