There is nothing better than the combination of coffee and chocolate.

With 110 mg of coffee content, Java Chip Frappuccino at Starbucks is definitely one of the most popular drinks on the menu. And, the reason is pretty simple.

It almost reminds you of your childhood when you used to drink a glass of milk with your favorite chocolate chip cookies. For those who love chocolate, this is a drink you should not miss at Starbucks, especially if you’re new to the whole frappuccino business.

The Java Chip Frappuccino had even managed to overtake the bestselling Mocha Frappuccino at one point.

3. Strawberry

If you’re on the hunt for a slightly edgy frappuccino, then the Strawberry one at Starbucks might be the answer. Also, strawberries are not just for girls, if that’s what you think. This flavor is loved by a gazillion men across the globe! The Strawberry and Crème Frappuccino barely has coffee flavoring in it, and tastes more like a shake than a cold coffee. But, what the hell? It is still one of the best Starbucks frappuccinos, according to various surveys. Also, who doesn’t love a nice and thick strawberry milkshake?

We certainly wouldn’t say no to it. We would actually ask you to bring on the fries while sipping on this delightful beverage. Also, it looks so attractive, like a cupcake from a little girl’s birthday! Strawberry and Creme is among the most ordered drinks at Starbucks during the summer months, when it’s smoking hot and you need something refreshing.

4. Dual Chocolate Chip

Can’t get enough of chocolate? Well, then the Double Chocolate Chip Frappuccino is made for you. The Double Chocolate Chip is pure indulgence; simply forget any diet or calorie count when you’re ordering this one. This crowd favorite is a little similar to Java Chip, but gives a little more in terms of texture and flavour.

Much like the Strawberry and Creme Frappuccino, this one tastes more like a shake than a coffee, though it surely has some coffee content in it. You could think of it as a decadent Oreo milkshake too, which we bet is too difficult to resist for anyone! Whenever you’re down and out or even if you wish to celebrate something, the Double Chocolate Chip Frappuccino is what you should be ordering at Starbucks. We absolutely don’t mind the extra sweetness in the drink and the chunky chips make us more than happy and contented!

5. Espresso

It is true that an espresso is not everyone’s cup of coffee. Literally. The drink is more of an acquired taste and it may take some time for a person to actually develop a liking for such strong coffee. You could also say that this is a drink for those with a mature taste of coffee, those who you could call purists. They do not like the intervention of any other ingredients such as milk or a flavoured sauce in their coffee. Having said that, the Starbucks Espresso Frappuccino is another ball-game all together.

You may love it or you may hate it, but you can’t ignore. After all, it is one of the beverages in our list of the Top Starbucks Frappuccinos 2021. The drink naturally has a slightly more watery consistency as compared to the other frappuccinos, but that doesn’t take away much from it. If you’re looking for an icy coffee beverage that’s light in consistency and strong on flavour, then you should definitely go for the Espresso Frappuccino at Starbucks.

6. Salted Caramel Mocha Frapp

The Salted Caramel Frappuccino stays true to its enticing name, in a very good way. You may think this drink might be too salty, but it’s actually not. Instead, it is the perfect blend of sweet and salty and leaves this amazing flavour in one’s mouth, making them crave for more. If you read the name of the beverage on the menu, it may sound a bit complicated to you. caramel, mocha and coffee-all together in one drink? Yes, but the result is nothing less that fabulous!

Starbucks reveals that this seasonal frappuccino has been crafted very carefully. It is a combination of ice, steamed milk, espresso coffee, caramel sauce, mocha, sweet whipped creamed, seal salt, turbinado sugar and toffee nut syrup. Yum! Our mouth is watering just thinking about how good this beverage would taste. The drink paired with a nice savoury snack such as a croissant, sandwich or salad would make for the perfect meal, because it is actually quite filling.

7. Caffe Vanilla

The regular menu at Starbucks has two options of Vanilla Frappuccino, but one of them is more popular than the other, and for the right reasons too. You might find it slightly plain or bland in the beginning, but most reviewers loved the taste of this simple drink. And, they were more than happy to include it in the list of the Best Starbucks Frappuccinos 2021. Don’t skimp on the whipped cream when ordering the Caffe Vanilla Frappuccino as it really adds to the overall flavour and texture of the beverage. The flavour of the vanilla is not overpowering, and is just enough to make the drink a delightfully refreshing one. We recommend this drink all year round, but especially during the summer months, when the temperatures are soaring high and you need something to cool you down.

8. Chai Creme

Number 8 on our list is the Chai Creme Frappuccino which is much like the brand’s Matcha Green Tea Frappuccino, in terms of concept. It is the frappuccino for tea, not coffee lovers. It also falls in the category “either you love it or hate it.” But, we kind of love it for its unique flavours. Chai lattes have become popular across the globe and the Chai Creme Frappuccino by Starbucks is available in all the US outlets all year round. People describe it is a creamy combination of ice, milk and spicy chai that is sweetened with whipped cream plus a sprinkling of cinnamon.

9. Caramel

It is generally believed that caramel as an ingredient has a very overpowering taste, it is basically sweetness overloaded. Now, that might be true for the Starbucks Caramel Frappuccino as well, but trust us, we would still go for it. This is because the taste and texture of the beverage are absolutely divine. The Caramel Frappuccino is definitely more caramel and less coffee, but there are people who like it that way. We personally think it leaves behind a very palatable salty coffee caramel taste in the mouth, and we love it!

10. Coffee Frapp

Coffee Frappucino is like a good cup of coffee blended with sugar and cream, but called a frappuccino. The beverage contains about 95 mg of caffeine and doesn’t give you a sudden burst of energy, rather a slow release and lots of happiness. Since it sounds so regular against the other drinks on Starbucks menu, you might never think of trying it. But, the fact is that it is actually a drink that wins with its simplicity. In other words, it is a low-calories and less sugary, but great quality frappuccino.

11. Matcha Green Tea Crème Frappuccino

Matcha, much like espresso, is an acquired taste, because it has a unique flavour. It might seem slightly bitter to some and other might call its taste a little earthy, however, we love the Matcha Green Tea Crème Frappuccino. Adding too much sweet to your match green tea crème frappuccino would be a bad idea because it will take away from its original flavour. You could though ask for a little whipped cream if the drink seems too bitter. Eventually, it will definitely become your go-to drink at Starbucks. PS: it’s healthy too!

12. Vanilla Bean Crème Frappuccino

The Vanilla Bean Creme Frappuccino at Starbucks is sweet, like all other frappuccinos on the menu. Yet, the flavour of the Vanilla Bean Creme Frappuccino is super refreshing. If you have a sip, you might feel like you’re drinking a milkshake and not a frappuccino. It’s light, smooth and creamy. The mellow drink is a must-try, especially if you’re new to the world of frappuccinos at Starbucks. But, we recommend not ordering a whipped cream topped vanilla bean creme. This is one of those drinks that doesn’t leave you too full even though it contains milk.

13. Smoked Butterscotch

If you thought the Smoked Butterscotch Frappuccino was a seasonal thing, well, let us help break this myth for you. Starbucks offers this drink throughout the year and we’re more than happy about it. So happy, that we’ve put it on our list of the Best Starbucks Frappuccinos 2021. There are two flavours dominating this beverage- mocha and butterscotch. This is the ideal cold Starbucks beverage for those who love all things sweet. Of course, the smokiness of the butterscotch adds to the taste and flavour of the drink, and it’s definitely worth ordering again. The balance between sweet and smoky is just right. The milk is nicely layered with the butterscotch sauce and leaves a lingering taste in your mouth once you’re done.

14. Toasted White Chocolate Mocha Frapp

We think that Starbucks is a coffee brand that treats each season as an opportunity to create new flavours for different beverage categories. The same is true for frappuccinos; no wonder we have a long list. And, we’re definitely not complaining. After all, the purpose behind it is to give us Epicurean bliss. Also, these frappuccinos look way too awesome on Instagram feeds!

Now, coming to the Toasted White Chocolate Mocha Frappuccino, this winter-special beverage is absolutely heavenly, and screams snow and Christmas. It is the ideal beverage to uplift your spirits during the holiday season (in case you’re feeling low) because it tastes absolutely divine. The caramelization of the white chocolate depends the espresso flavour and takes the drink to another level. The frappuccino is topped with lots of whipped cream and dusted with cranberry sugar. Trust us, it not only tastes good, but looks absolutely adorable!

Starbucks Frappuccinos FAQs


1. Are you supposed to freeze Starbucks Frapp?

Yes, you can totally freeze your Starbucks Frappuccino, even if you’re buying a bottled one at a store. Just be careful that you don’t store it at temperatures below zero degrees, as there is a risk of the bottle breaking (it’s glass after all). But, putting your store-bought frappuccino into the freezer could totally make it as real as the one you would get at the cafe.

2. Does Starbucks Frapp go bad?

To begin with, the shelf lives of packed Starbucks Frappuccinos depend on the expiry date written on the bottle. If you haven’t opened the bottle, it could last quite long without requiring refrigeration. But, once you’ve opened the bottle, you should consume it in the shortest possible time to avoid any stomach hazards (the expiry date is indicated on the bottle). The Starbucks Frappuccinos you purchase at the café, on the other hand, should be drunk instantly.

So, we have given you lots of information regarding Starbucks Frappuccinos. Now, in case you’re confused about which one to go for, we suggest trying all of them one by one. It would be fun and exciting to taste so many different flavours in different seasons or all year round, wouldn’t it?

3. Are you supposed to blend the Starbucks Frapp?

After a while, it is finally time to appreciate your traditional cappuccino! Drink from a glass reusable Starbucks cup, or drink right from the jar. Should you skip the glass, I suggest using a butter knife to combine around the Frappuccino within the jar for improved consistency.
