Review: S’mores Frappuccino

I recently found myself at Starbucks for a midday afternoon caffeine kick and while I was there, thought it would be a great opportunity to try the new S’mores Frappuccino. It wasn’t too long ago that we blogged about its new existence. I came into my local Starbucks and told them right up front, “I’m going to order the S’mores frapp because I’m going to blog about it.” When it arrived at the counter, the barista told me that she was a little nervous because she heard it was going to be on my blog. Poor girl. Basically the frapp is a “campfire in a cup.” It actually had a hint of a coffee taste in it and while it was good and sweet (exactly what I thought it would be) it was WAY SWEET. Like just filled to the brim with sugar I’m sure. I can’t believe I used to have frapps on a weekly basis back in college, but now I know why – because they got me completely wired. Do I think I would order this again? Probably not, but that’s only because I’m an adult and drinks like these would probably give me headaches. Did it taste like a real s’more? Absolutely. I also really like the crumbled graham crackers at the top for the extra added crunch. Also,  I have just one little nitpicky detail which was that there was a glob of chocolate syrup on the bottom. Serious question – is it my job or the barista’s job to make sure that it is stirred in well? I had gotten a gulp full of it which really alarmed me.
