Starbucks' Christmas Tree Frappuccino Fuels Social Media Frenzy

Starbucks is now serving the Christmas Tree Frappuccino.

There's already two holiday cups at Starbucks and not a special drink to get you in the spirit. Instead of being garnished with ornaments and pine needles that you somehow find under your furniture six years after the fact, though, it is topped with a matcha whipped cream and sprinkled with candied cranberries, a caramel drizzle, and a little dried strawberry "star" on top.

While there were a few skeptics who wrote that they didn't understand why anyone would "need" such a drink, most people who have taken to social media to comment on the drink are excited.

Starting today, December 7, Starbucks will be selling these festive drinks at participating Starbucks locations in the USA and Canada.

If you want to try the Christmas Tree Frappuccino, Rumsey says you absolutely should, and you shouldn't feel bad about it, either.

The over-the-top drink is just the latest in a succession of Instagrammable Starbucks Frappuccino, which have all caught the attention of fans with a sweet tooth and a smartphone.

First there was the pink and purple Unicorn Frappuccino that baristas absolutely loathed making. You can also ask for skim milk and no whipped cream to cut back on the calories but, again, it's not a biggie if you go all-in. It actually sounds pretty tasty and looks fun.
