Summer’s coming early to Starbucks.
After a year’s absence, the popular S’mores Frappuccino returns to the Seattle-based coffee giant April 30, and will remain on the menu throughout the summer season, the company said in a statement.
Starbucks says fandom for the S’mores Frapp may rival the PSL, the drink of fall.
“Ever since the Starbucks S’mores Frappuccino debuted in 2015 to commemorate summer, customers have loved celebrating the season with the delicious, blended beverage each year,” the company said in the statement. “They claim it’s the ultimate signal that summer has arrived, and evokes a passionate fan-base similar to that of the fall-inspired, Pumpkin Spice Latte.”
The drink has marshmallow-infused whipped cream and milk chocolate sauce on the bottom, before the blended coffee, milk and iced and it’s then topped with marshmallow whipped cream and a graham cracker crumble.
Last year, the blended coffee drink didn’t return leading some fans to take to social media to voice their disappointment. Starbucks hinted the drink was returning by retweeting three tweets that mentioned S’mores.
“ALL WE WANT IS THE SMORES BACK,” Twitter user @lxvxm tweeted June 19.
A 16-ounce grande S’mores drink costs between $5.25 to $5.45.
