7 Starbucks Flavors Around the World You Need to Try This 2021
Traveling alongside eating the locals' delicacy in your destination is a luxury that everybody cannot have. Since tourists and travelers seem to have a budget for that leisure (at least when COVID-19 is not yet restricting so much of the mobility), local delicacies considered authentic are pricy.
But when you travel to other countries, famous food chains like Starbucks offer different flavors worldwide, which can be viewed as a local delicacy because it is exclusively offered in that particular country.
Every food chain adjusts its menu to suit the locales' palate, its primary customer, and Starbucks does the same thing. So if you ever see yourself wandering in these countries, here are Starbucks flavors around the world, you must try.
Sakura Milk Pudding
This originates from Starbucks in Japan. According to Best, this seasonal beverage is available every Cherry Blossom Season in the land of the rising sun, which happens at the end of March. They add that this beverage has a milk base with jelly-like pudding pieces combined in cherry-strawberry sauce.
They add that this is topped with pink roasted rice pieces. This reflects Japan's respect for feeding eyes first before the stomach.
If you happen to visit Europe in mid-October, Delish recommends trying this spooky treat from Starbucks, which is vegan. They add that this drink features coconut milk, pineapple essence, Starbucks' crème Frappuccino syrup mixing with "lime-slime' and charcoal powder to give it a spooky look for Halloween.
Avocado Blended Frappuccino
Awesome Inventions shares that this refreshing drink offered in 284 Starbucks stores in Seoul and other South Korea locations offer this beverage every summer. They further that apart from the real avocado flesh blended in the drink, the pone that steals the attention is the chocolate pit in the center of the drink, making it resemble a natural avocado sliced in half.
Caramel Popcorn Frappuccino
Available in Australia and the United Kingdom, Best exclaims that this should be taken advantage of if you are in the area. Awesome Inventions notes that this beverage features the company's Pop'zel syrup or a combination of popcorn and pretzel, then topped with whipped cream and then garnished with caramel popcorn, caramel drizzle, and salted pretzels.
If you wander around Singapore and you're feeling thirsty and humid, you may enjoy the heavy air with this tropical drink. Delish mentions that the creamy beverage encompasses coconut and caramelized palm sugar, of course, whipped cream.
Banana Split Frappuccino
If you walk around Palm Springs in California, Best recommends you taking the banana split Frappuccino in their Starbucks outlet. They add that you may ask a barista for their secret menu or order a strawberry and crème Frappuccino with added vanilla bean powder, java chips, and a whole banana with whipped cream mocha drizzle.
Inspired by the chocolate truffle, Awesome Invention notes that this beverage from Starbucks Brazil starts with a coffee blend. They add that this drink also features mocha sauce, chocolate chips, white mocha sauce, classic syrup, milk, and ice. Then it is topped with whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles.
Starbucks flavor from around the world may not be a concoction from the locals, but they will offer a taste of the countries culture and rich heritage. Starbucks may be a coffee chain that did not originate from the countries mentioned, but their signature drinks offered in the respective places can be considered a diamond in the rough. Everybody would want a Frappuccino with a local twist.
