Starbucks – Half Price Frappuccinos (May 7 to 16)

I remember back in the day, before I started drinking “real” coffee, a Starbucks Frappuccino blended beverage was my way of drinking a grown up’s coffee drink, but disguised as a milkshake. Now, Frappuccinos have become a Starbucks staple, with a huge variety of new flavours – from strawberry to green tea. Furthermore, with their newest beverage promotion, Starbucks is encouraging its customers to personalize their drinks and customize their Frappuccino. Choose from any of their syrup shots (vanilla? hazelnut? caramel?) and get it blended with cream. Get it light or get it with a double shot of espresso. The possibilities are only limited to your tastes and imagination! Join Starbucks for happy hour between 3pm and 5pm and enjoy a half priced Frappuccino blended beverage from now until May 16, 2010.
