Review: Starbucks - Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino

Starbucks' new Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino is a new, limited-time half-frozen coffee concoction this summer. It features Starbucks coffee blended with mocha sauce, vanilla syrup, chocolaty chips, milk, and ice, and then topped with chocolaty whipped cream and chocolate cookie crumbles.

The price ranges from $3.95 (for a Tall) to $4.95 (for a Venti). I went with the Tall with whole milk for extra creaminess.

This one looks like a chocolate lover's dream. It's chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate. The Mocha Frappuccino that makes the drinks base is well served by the little bits of chocolaty chips; they add a burst of creamy milk chocolate flavor as they hit the tongue and really make the drink.

The consistency was pretty smooth with no sizable ice bits. The flavor is mostly like chocolate milk but with a hint of coffee at the tail end.

The chocolaty whipped cream (if you've a mind to make your own just beat some cocoa powder into whipped cream) is a nice touch; just a touch of chocolate flavor makes it more interesting than the norm and a good choice to put on any Starbuck drink while it's still available.

The cookie crumble is pretty superfluous unless your spooning it up with the whipped cream like a mousse; it makes for a nice looking drink though. Think of it as garnish.

Overall, the Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino is a pretty nice drink but not as rich as say an chocolate shake; Still, it'll give you a nice hit of tasty chocolate and caffeine to keep you going.

Starbucks' Frappuccino Happy Hour is underway until the 13th so now's the time to try it or any other Starbucks Frappuccino combination you have in mind.

  1. Personally, aside from the mocha whipped cream, I couldn't taste the difference between this and the java chip frappuccino, even if it supposedly has vanilla in it. :\

  2. Delicious. I love this drink. It is not to sweet, but chocolatey enough to satisfy even me! :)

  4. You're supposed to mix in the crumbles and whipped cream; doing that takes always takes frappuccinos to another level.
