Around the World: Starbucks Japan to Blend Cookies into Frappuccinos

Because Japan gets like four limited-time flavors to every one of ours, Starbucks Japan is set to debut the new Chunky Cookie Frappuccino next month.

The new Frappuccino takes a Vanilla Creme Frappuccino and throws in a whole chocolate chunk cookie that was specially baked to retain its crunch. For good measure, almonds are also blended in.

Like the current Chocolate Banana Frappuccinos offered in Japan, the Chunky Cookie Frappuccinos also look to come with an extra-wide straw to help you get those cookie chunks into your mouth.

In case, you're planning a trip out that way, the Chunky Cookie Frappuccino will be available May 12, 2014 through August 31, 2014.

Prices start at 540 yen (~$5.27 US) for a Tall.

You might be able to achieve something similar here in the States if your local Starbucks is willing to blend one of their biscotti cookies into your Frappuccino, but you're on your own in procuring a big straw.
