Starbucks' Strawberry Funnel Cake Smoothie Is Summer Nostalgia

As the weather warms up, there are a few things to look forward to: shedding layers of clothing and throwing on a cute sundress, a beach day, and Starbucks releasing its 2021 summer drink menu. This year, Starbucks didn’t play tricks on the lineup.

Starbucks' summer menu is now available nationwide. And, luckily for you dedicated and nostalgic Starbucks fanatics out there, The unicorn cake pop is back. Unleash your inner child with every bite of these magical vanilla cake pops with confetti and white chocolate frosting.

Because Starbucks’ new menu lineup is inspired by carefree summer moments like festivals and amusement parks, The Strawberry Funnel Cake Frappuccino is here (only available for a limited time!) to make your summer dreams a reality. If the name doesn't hook you yet, maybe the layers of strawberry puree and whipped cream mixed with funnel cake flavor and topped with crunchy powdered sugar funnel cake slices will have you running to the nearest coffee shop.

If you're not a fan of the Strawberry Funnel Cake Frappuccino, Starbucks' summer menu lineup also offers some classic Frappuccinos available year-round. Choose the Caramel Ribbon Crisp Frappuccino, which combines rich buttery caramel syrup with coffee and milk and is topped with dark caramel sauce, whipped cream, caramel drizzle and a super delicious caramel sugar topping. Are you still drooling?


If not, maybe the Mocha Cookie Crumb Frappuccino — a blend of coffee, mocha and smoothie mocha, layered with whipped cream and cookie crumbs, topped with more whipped cream and more cookie crumbs — will do. Can meet your needs.

But hey, maybe you’re not a big coffee drinker. Don’t worry, Starbucks has a seat reserved for you. Try a delicious and pretty refreshing drink with Mango Pitaya, Mango Pitaya Lemonade, Strawberry Acai and Strawberry Acai Lemonade. Plus, bright colors are the perfect complement to your Instagram aesthetic.
