  1. The new drink sounds like a sugar bomb! But I won't lie... I'm intrigued. But how can you have 4 kinds of caramel? @_@

  2. I'm guessing the four types of caramel they're talking about is the caramel syrup, the two types of caramel drizzle, and the crunchy caramel topping (at least that's what I've gleamed from following Starbucks forums)...

  3. I think you're right. There's the caramel sauce, the dark caramel, the caramel drizzle on top, and the crunchy caramel topping. Considering that the Caramel Frappuccino is already pretty sweet, this sounds ridiculously sweet.

  4. It really is ridiculously sweet... It was like drinking caramel... >< It took me two hours to finish a grande because it was too much, even for me.
