I’d love to be able to tell you that I’m a girl who’s completely unaffected by the color pink, but I can’t lie to you. I love pink everything. I sometimes buy ugly things just because they’re pink, like rugs and floral T-shirts, but I can’t help myself. If I could safely cover myself in glue and roll in pink glitter, I’d do it. It might make me feel like a walking girly girl stereotype, but there it is. Judge me as you will. And like any walking stereotype, I’m easily swayed into buying things I shouldn’t (see above), but especially when they’re packed with sugar AND they’re pink. Enter the Starbucks Birthday Cake Frappuccino.
The specialty drink was originally released for just five days in March of 2015 in celebration of Starbuck’s 20th anniversary, but now it’s back. While I partially resent the way Starbucks adds and drops new drink flavors on us so often now, I’m not too proud to say this is one I’ll have trouble resisting. It’s crafted with a mixture of vanilla bean and hazelnut flavors, and it’s topped with pink raspberry-flavored whipped cream. PINK WHIPPED CREAM. I’m going to lose my mind.
On top of all the other reasons to get excited about the drink, if you have the Starbucks Keyboard you also get a Birthday Cake Frappuccino emoji starting today. I haven’t checked it out yet but I’m sure it’s adorable. And just like last time, the drink will only last for five days (April 28 to May 2, to be exact) so don’t be shy. Get in line before they’re gone again. I’ll be the girl grabbing hers with the pink nail polish in front of you.
