Starbucks has specialized in culture-specific drinks in the past, like the red bean Frappucino in China, but now they've moved to the Muslim culture. To celebrate Ramadan this year, the coffee company has released the Date Frappucino. The special beverage will be available throughout the holy month in the Middle East.

"The Date Frappuccino deliciously combines date juice – the favourite Arab festive fruit - with Starbucks finest coffee beans, blended with milk and ice and topped with a swirl of rich cream and date drizzle giving it a distinguished traditional Arabic taste," Al Bawaba reports.

Just as they do in the West, Starbucks introduced complimentary foods items. While we're having Pumpkin Spice Frappucinos and Chocolate Cinnamon loaf, they're pairing their blended beverages with the Pistachio Date Cake and Almond & Date Delight ("a sweet treat of almond crust stuffed with a rich date puree topped with sprinkles of icing sugar crumbles.")
