Fast forward to Thursday, Starbucks Mexico announced on Twitter they are officially releasing the Mermaid Frappuccino in more than 600 stores!
The colorful concoction — which is a green melon creme drink, topped with blue vanilla whipped cream and blue and pink sprinkles — was inspired by the company’s logo. Sorry y’all, but we think our idea is better!
The drink is available for only a limited time, and it’s unlikely it will be sold in other countries since some of the ingredients are unavailable in U.S. chains.
As we reported, in May, a creative barista created the unofficial Mermaid Frappuccino which is a Pokémon GO frap (vanilla bean base, blended with freeze-dried blackberries, and topped off with whipped cream) but instead of raspberry syrup, the yummy treat is drizzled with a toasted coconut matcha sauce.
