At Active Blogs we take our coffee very seriously. We even have our own custom blend that we brew at the office! So naturally, when we heard that Starbucks had come out with six limited edition frappuccino flavors, we decided that we absolutely had to try them all. For scientific purposes, of course.

The Frappuccino FlavOff allows coffee enthusiasts to cast their vote on which limited time flavor they want to see permanently on the Starbucks menu. The contenders included Caramel Cocoa Cluster, Cupcake, Cinnamon Roll, Cotton Candy, Lemon Bar, and Red Velvet Cake.

AB team with Starbucks

Surprisingly, our teams’ votes were across the board. All of us had different favorites, making it difficult to come to a consensus on which was the best.

Favorites: Least Favorite:
Marc Caramel Cocoa Cluster & Cupcake Red Velvet
Kimberly Lemon Bar & Cotton Candy Caramel Cocoa Cluster
Dawn Cinnamon Roll & Lemon Bar Caramel Cocoa Cluster
Allison Cotton Candy & Lemon Bar Caramel Cocoa Cluster
Eric Cinnamon Roll & Red Velvet Caramel Cocoa Cluster


Starbucks taste testThe frappuccino with the most votes was Lemon Bar. It was light, refreshing, and tasted just like a frozen lemonade! Second place was a tie between Cinnamon Roll and Cotton Candy, which, while very different, were equally delicious. However, Red Velvet, Cupcake, and Caramel Cocoa Cluster all received votes as well.

As the FlavOff narrows down to a race between the final contestants of Cinnamon Roll, Cupcake, and Caramel Cocoa Cluster, any of these flavors could come out on top. Which is your favorite?
