Starbucks Japan recently introduced its new Coffee Jelly Frappuccino, which combines the chain's signature espresso blend with a gelatinous Japanese treat. Appealing to regional taste preferences, the blended beverage has already become a summertime hit among Japanese consumers.
The new Coffee Jelly Frappuccino was released last week by Starbucks Japan and will be available until August 31st. The drink itself consists of gelatin cubes made with the chain's signature roast espresso blend and a custard vanilla sauce. The jellies are then topped with layers of vanilla custard, frozen coffee and a generous helping of whipped cream. The drink even comes with an extra-large straw for sucking up the bite-sized gelatin cubes.
While Starbucks' summer 2016 menu has been quite a hit in North America, it appears that its regional concoctions are equally as popular.
