Starbucks Has Released An Horchata Frappuccino And People Are Torn About It
For a while now, hardcore Starbucks fans have discussed a way to get an unofficial, horchata-flavored frappuccino. It’s done by ordering a frappuccino with a specific list of ingredients that result in a frap that sorta tastes like horchata. It seems Starbucks has caught on because they just released an official Horchata Frappuccino. Though some people are excited about the new, horchata-inspired drink, some are pretty disappointed by the flavor. Here’s how things are shaking out since the release of the Horchata Frappuccino.
At first, people weren’t sure if the drink was real.
I'm going to be so upset if that horchata frappuccino isn't a thing. They are getting me and my people's hopes up.

Maybe they thought it was too good to be true, but it is very, very true.
Some people are over the moon about it.

Unlike the wildly popular Unicorn Frappuccino, the Horchata Frappuccino is going to be a permanent part of the Starbucks menu, according to CNBC.
And some Latinos can’t contain their excitement.

The ingredients for the frappuccino almond milk (for the non-dairy people), cinnamon dolce syrup, coffee and ice topped with whipped cream and caramel with cinnamon and sugar sprinkles.
It is even encouraging those who don’t like Starbucks to give it a try.
I'm not a big Starbucks fanatic BUT I just heard they now have a horchata frappuccino made with almond milk ?☕️ I NEED to try this

Seems like Starbucks is getting good at the gimmick beverages to encourage people to give up their money.
And, at first glance, it seems that everyone is just thrilled about it.

But, some people are not quite satisfied with the taste.
“Tastes more like a cinnamon roll.” Yeah. Horchatas and cinnamon rolls don’t really taste the same.
They’ve even tried to warn horchata lovers about the lack of real horchata flavor.

But even some of those who are disappointed with the drink don’t hate it.

Sometimes you just have to take things as they are and remember that not all copies will taste the same.
We want to know…
