Review: Starbucks - Vanilla Creme Frappuccino

Starbucks' Vanilla Creme Frappuccino is a frosty beverage for the non-caffeinated set and is pretty much a blend of vanilla syrup, milk, and ice.

My local Starbucks had this at $3.75 for a 16-ounce Grande.

This one is like a lighter, more liquid version of a vanilla ice cream milkshake. There aren't any surprises to what it tastes like as it tastes like what it is: a blended mix of whole milk, ice, and vanilla syrup. Which is like a milkshake, only not as creamy.
A bit of a compromise drink but not bad at all. I'd rather have the milkshake though. Plus, it wouldn't be too hard to replicate this at home for quite a bit less.

  2. I consider the Grande to be Starbucks' medium so $3.75 when I bought this one. I don't remember if the price has changed since then. I think the Venti was $4.25, but I can't be sure.
