New Affogato-Style Frappuccinos Take Inspiration From Classic Italian Dessert


A secret menu item officially joins the Starbucks menu

Affogato-style Frappuccinos are classic Frappuccinos topped with a shot of espresso.

The latest drink offerings from Starbucks may just give those secret menu ‘rainbow’ drinks a run for its money.

Starbucks customers in the U.S. and Canada can enjoy affogato-style Frappuccinos. The drink, inspired by the classic gelato affogato — a scoop of vanilla gelato or ice cream topped with a shot of hot espresso — is essentially a Frappuccino topped with a shot of espresso.

The coffee chain is offering its vanilla bean, caramel, and mocha Frappuccinos affogato-style. However, any Frappuccino can be ordered with a shot of espresso poured on top, according to a press release.

“We start with a shot of our smooth signature Espresso Roast known for its rich flavor and caramelly sweetness,” said Ryan Coombes, on the Starbucks beverage development team. “When you pour the espresso over the Frappuccino, it creates a beautiful marbling finish.”

The affogato-style Frappuccinos are available at participating Starbucks stores throughout the summer.

This gelato, or Italian-style ice cream by Snoqualmie offers a fresh take on frozen desserts. The ice cream product is made with simple ingredients like milk, cultured cream, skim milk, sugar and sugared egg yolks, yet it takes its flavor inspiration from an unusual source—crème fraîche, which is a naturally soured cream.

The all-natural ice cream product is made from non-GMO ingredients and boasts a formula that's free from added hormones, preservatives and artificial flavors.

Rather than trying to come up with exotic and inventive new flavor pairings, many food and beverage brands are simply looking to adjacent products inside or outside of their own category to create crossover flavors inspired by other items that are already familiar to consumers. Snoqualmie's Crème Fraiche Gelato is a perfect example of this.
