Java Chip Frappuccino vs Starbucks Custom Frappuccino
So my cravings have taken a different turn. My favorite drink at Starbucks is still the Coffee Frappuccino but I have to try something different every once in a while right? Well, so I tried the Java Chip Frappuccino. It was awesome. Not the most awesomest but a great drink nevertheless. It still didn't knock the Coffee Frapp off its pedestal. The java chip added almost but not quite unlike the bubbles or pearl found in bubble tea. It gave just the right kick. But the intense Mocha taste overpowered the whole drink causing it not to be the greatest. However, I think I found something there. Something that was meant to be but have not come to fruition. On my next visit to Starbucks, I asked the barista to make me a custom drink. One that has the base of the Coffee Frapp but with the extra zing of the Java Chip. Two scoops of java chip in my Coffee Frappuccino please. Lo and behold, I have created another masterpiece of exquisite drink of the gods of coffee. It had the same great flavor of the Coffee Frappuccino added that necessary quality of bubble tea so you don't end up drinking it so fast. Every sip gives you the coffee and some java chip to chew. It's like I'm setting myself up for this addiction. So please, don't try this mix because it will just get you hooked all over again.
