Starbucks Peppermint Mocha Frappuccino

Starbucks Peppermint Mocha FrappuccinoPeppermint Mocha is a seasonal offering from Starbucks and is available in a variety of the company's beverages.

I tried it as a Frappuccino just a couple of hours ago.

It tastes pretty much like their standard Mocha Frappuccino but with just a hint of peppermint taste. The mint taste is slight enough that the mocha flavoring is still dominant, and doesn't leave your mouth with a minty coolness.

I find it quite good, but not something I'd want to have all the time. It's perhaps perfect as a limited time offering for the holidays, otherwise I'd rather have the Caramel Frappuccino instead.

The Peppermint Mocha Frappuccino is supposed to be topped with "Ruby Red Sprinkles" but they forgot to put it on mine.

Starbucks says the largest size comes with 15g of fat, 9g of saturated fat, and 93g of carbohydrates, and that's with the whipped cream topping. I suppose the barista did me a favor by leaving the sprinkles off.

Get one now before the holidays are over.

I had the opposite reaction - I thought the peppermint flavor was overpowering. I much prefer the hot peppermint mocha to the Frapp.

My local Starbucks guy tells me they have Peppermint syrup year-round - they just don't promote it.

Clementine, if it's too overpowering, ask for them to make it half-sweet!

Save yourself the $5.00 Buy "Big Train" Mocha powder, "First Street" peppermint syrup (both available at Smart and Final). Initial purchase will cost about $12-$15 but you can make at least 25-30 drinks per container. This averages appx. sixty cents per drink (yes 60 cents)
