Yes -- they're "however-you-want-it" frappuccinos. The big change is that we don't use a pre-made mix anymore, which is what limited frappuccino customization. Now you can choose whatever kind of milk you'd like, decaf or regular coffee, and there's also the option to have extra coffee without having to add a shot of espresso.
The new frappuccinos are more milky and a lot sweeter than the old ones; they're also blended on a different setting, so the texture is different. I don't like them.
Yeah we got a blender. I put milk in first, put in espresso, then ice, then squirts of w/e flavoring, then blend. Some get extra flavor of like vanilla or strawberry and some get the side swirl, then whip cream but most is just that.
i got a mocha frap today and it tasted like it was watered down and just watery. it was like there was no coffee in it whatsoever. maybe we have to order it differently but i wish it still tasted the same even if we ordered it regular. you do get choices but i heard it's much healthier or something. it is not worth any money to me though
that's why you have to go the 'light' route! A 16 oz java chip frap (light with none of that whipped cream business) is only 200 calories! Not bad for a frappucchino! The regular of the same size is like 2x that!
I still think it tastes the same as before, so maybe the 'light' varieties aren't affected as much? I dunno.
I noticed the difference as soon as it was released. I like the idea of having more selection, but whenever i get to the counter i stick with my normal two orders.
I'm a frapp a day kinda girl & i don't like messing with a good thing.
