Starbuck’s fortune looks brighter if you look into its Crystal Ball Frappe
The world’s largest coffee chain Starbucks is predicting increased sales in select stores in the United States, Canada and Mexico at least for the next four days, following the debut of its Crystal Ball Frappuccino.
Crystal Ball Frappuccino – a cold peach-flavored, crème-based drink and decorated with turquoise sparkles – was made available to customers on Thursday and is expected to break sales record of its other special beverages.
The sparkle flavor, however, is unknown to both costumers and baristas, providing future surprises during the application of finishing touches to the 12-ounce beverage.
But do not fear, Starbucks is assuring customers that calories will not be included in the surprise as the Crystal Ball Frappuccino still followed standard recipe made of whole milk and whipped cream, or about 270 calories.
Starbucks is hoping to beef up sales in the participating stores, replicating the recent success when it launched the Unicorn Frappuccino, a pink beverage with sweet to sour taste; and Zombie Frappuccino, a green-colored, tart apple- and caramel-flavored beverage with pink whipped cream “brains” and red mocha drizzle.
