But, Starbucks is putting a twist on the infamous holiday dessert with a new beverage that will change the way you think about it. Today, the coffee company is launching the Fruitcake Frappucino, a Hazelnut Crème Frappuccino blended with dried fruit and spiced with cinnamon, that is topped with whipped cream, caramel dots, and a sprinkle of matcha (that definitely doesn't sound like the typical fruitcake to us). Courtesy Starbucks To get its customers even more into the holiday spirit, Starbucks is giving its Starbucks Rewards members an ugly sweater cozy as a gift with the purchase of a Fruitcake Frappuccino, starting today as well, while supplies last. Starbucks's Holiday Drinks Are Back in New Green Cups But, you'll have to hurry if you want the cozy and a taste of the Fruitcake Frappuccino. It's only available Dec. 15 - 18 in participating stores in the U.S. and Canada. In addition to its latest holiday frap, Starbucks will ring in National Ugly Sweater Day Friday with the return of its Ugly Sweater Cookies. Courtesy Starbucks The spicy gingerbread cookies each have a frosted sweater that features either a snowman, snowflake, or Christmas tree. Yum!
