To cap off 2019 and welcome 2020, Starbucks Japan created the Adzuki Kinako Warabimochi Fuku Frappuccino with pieces of warabi mochi, which mimic the rice cakes that are typically served to ring in the New Year. Thanks to the inclusion of this ingredient, the festive drink has a jelly-like texture.
Beyond having a texture of mochi, the new frappuccino also shares the same flavors of the seasonal treats by including kinako soybean flour and freeze-dried adzuki red beans to reinterpret the popular treats.
Alongside the Adzuki Kinako Warabimochi Fuku Frappuccino, Starbucks Japan is also unveiling the Azuki Kinako Fuku Latte, which boasts the same ingredients as its cold counterpart, minus the pieces of warabi mochi.
