Summer is getting off to a bit of a late start in Japan, with an extended rainy season keeping conditions cool and overcast. This didn’t stop Starbucks from rolling out a new dessert drink with one of the season’s tastiest fruits.
Unveiling the Peach on the Beach Frappuccino, Starbucks Japan says it’s recreated the sensation of eating a peach, but in Frappuccino form. It is created by mixing large pieces of juicy white peach into the drink, which is further enhanced with peach juice, peach puree, and peach sauce. The drink even looks the part, with swirled shades of light and dark pink bringing to mind the enticing patterns on the skin of a peach.
This isn’t Starbucks Japan’s first-ever Frappuccino with peach notes, as a few years back Nectarine Peach Cream Frappuccinos briefly graced the chain’s menu. The new Peach on the Beach, however, is all peach all the time and might be a purer, sweeter experience.
