Sip and sleigh! Starbucks unveiled a Christmas Tree Frappuccino earlier this month

Mint chocolate: It was made with a with a Peppermint Mocha Crème Frappuccino base
Earlier this month, Starbucks unveiled the Christmas Tree Frappuccino.
The peppermint mocha-flavored Frapp was topped with green whipped cream and candy ‘ornaments’, so it looked just as festive as it tasted.
The drink was only in stores from December 7 through December 11 and proved highly popular with customers, who flooded social media with images and reviews of the limited drink.
Featuring a Peppermint Mocha Crème Frappuccino base, the drink was topped with green matcha whipped cream, which was piled high to look like a tree.
The whipped cream was then drizzled with a caramel ‘garland’ and sprinkled with candied cranberry ‘ornaments’. Finally, on top, they put a strawberry ‘tree topper’.
Festive: It’s topped with green matcha whipped cream, which is piled high to look like a tree

Get it while it’s cold! The drink was unveiled this morning and is already very buzzy
Must-have! Social media users expressed excitement about the treat
Yum: Reviews were mostly positive, though some noted that it didn’t look like it does in pictures
A little fun: There were plenty of Christmas-loving customers who just wanted it because it was seasonal
‘OH MEH GOAD I JUST SAW THE STARBUCKS CHRISTMAS TREE FRAPPUCCINO and the very sight of it gave me a medical event. I want one so badly,’ wrote one excited fan.
‘I hate Christmas but I NEED a Christmas tree Frappuccino ASAP please and thank you,’ wrote another.
While there were a few skeptics who wrote that they didn’t understand why anyone would ‘need’ such a drink, most people who have taken to social media to comment on the drink are excited.
‘Verdict: minty and tasty, though not as festive looking as some of the other special frapps like the zombie or unicorn. Still good, though!’ wrote one reviewer. Said another: ‘We tried the new Christmas Tree Frappuccino at work earlier and it looks atrocious but it doesn’t taste half bad.’
‘Bought a Christmas Tree Frappuccino from Starbucks because I have no f***ing self control when it comes to Christmas-related things,’ another said.
