Among the most talked about drink coming to the Starbucks’ line is the Carmel Ribbon Crunch Frappuccino, which will debut on April 30th. The drink will be made “with caramel syrup, Frappuccino roast coffee, milk and ice, drizzled with a layer of Starbucks’ new dark caramel sauce and topped with whipped cream, more caramel and a crunchy caramel sugar topping.” (source 1)
