I’m not sure why, but I always feel more confident when I have a Starbucks drink in my hand. It’s the perfect accessory for any season. In the winter, nothing goes better with an infinity scarf and one of those hats that looks like it’s about to slide off your head at any moment than a grande pumpkin spiced latte. When I think about my perfect summer outfit, it’s a free-flowing maxi dress, floppy hat, and a venti iced frappuccino. Am I absolutely delusional for saying my favorite accessory is a beverage? Maybe.
Starbucks is quite literally feeding my delusions by introducing six new frappuccino flavors today, in celebration of the iconic specialty drinks’ 20th birthday. The new flavors will be under the temporary Fan Flavor Frappuccino umbrella, and includes Caramel Cocoa Cluster, Cupcake, Cotton Candy, Cinnamon Roll, Red Velvet Cake, and Lemon Bar. Basically all your favorite desserts are now drinkable through a straw.

The flavors aren’t exactly “new,” considering some were part of Starbucks’ not-so-secret menu, like Cotton Candy. The others were some of the most requested flavors from fans who petitioned Starbs for new frap flavors. Take a look at the descriptions of the new flavors below and then try and stop yourself from getting into your car and driving to the nearest Starbucks immediately.

If I were you, I would head to Starbucks and order all six new flavors ASAP, because there’s a catch. Starbucks giveth and Starbucks taketh away, and like some sick and twisted game, they’re making us choose our one and only favorite to reign as winner over all the rest. How can I possibly choose just one flavor? That’s like picking a favorite child!
The fraps will face off in delicious competition starting June 19, when customers will be able to vote for their favorite Fan Flavor on Frappuccino.com. The winner will be announced July 3, and from July 3-6 that winning flavor will be available in a grande size for just $3.
Choose wisely, America. .
