This summer, global company Starbucks creates a fusion drink that appeals to both the East and the West. The new Frappuccino offering boasts a mixture of two beloved Japanese and American desserts — matcha and s'mores. The new one-of-a-kind fusion drink will definitely challenge the consumer's taste buds. The mixture boasts "a bittersweet base of green tea and non-fat milk." The toppings feature the American-inspired snack — graham crackers, marshmallows and brownie bits are sprinkled on top of the whipped cream. Finally, the Frappuccino is complete with a chocolate drizzle.

Starbucks' fusion drink offering will be available in locations across Japan starting next week. Hopefully, there will be a global release of the Matcha S'Mores Frappuccino, since the culturally experimental drink is largely interesting both in taste and in concept.
