Elkhart Truth and Flavor 574 staff try six new Starbucks Frappuccino flavors

ELKHART — The battle between hot versus cold coffee will wage on, and it seems like the jury is out on the new Starbucks Frappuccino flavors, at least in our offices. 

Starbucks recently released six new flavors of its cold, blended beverages: caramel cocoa cluster, lemon bar, cotton candy, cupcake, red velvet cake and cinnamon roll, according to Starbucks’ website

The six new flavors were rolled out in celebration of the drink’s 20th anniversary, according to the company. Customers can vote through June 30 for their favorites, and the winner will be announced July 3. 

The grande size of the winning flavor will be sold for $3 between 2 and 5 p.m. from July 3 through July 6, according to the company. 

We asked six Elkhart Truth, Flavor 574 and 95.3 MNC staff to try the six new flavors and tell us what they thought: 

Caramel cocoa cluster: “Toffee coffee. Patent pending.” — Milestone coordinator Joe Kuharic 

Cotton candy: “I might have liked it when I was like, 6. It seems like something a little kid would like.” — Reporter Emily Pfund 

Lemon bar: “It tastes like…like maybe there was one lemon Skittle in like, a snow cone. And then it melted. And then it kind of got the flavor of that Skittle.” — Digital media designer Amanda Mitchell 

Cinnamon roll: “When I drink it, I’m thinking ‘Oh, this is french toast. A nice little blueberry french toast would be good right now.’” — Inside sales representative Carl Hartstein.

Cupcake: “Mmm. This is not bad.” — Assistant managing editor of print Dan Spalding

Red velvet cake: “Mhm. Yeah. Winner winner, chicken dinner.” — 95.3 MNC editor Krystal Vivian
