Yep, it’s that time where we are blessed with a wacky limited edition Frapp..This beauty will be called the Tie-Dye Frapp and will hit Starbucks US on July 10th😬..Here are the only deets I have, the colors come from a red, blue, yellow powder that’s shaken on top of the frapp and in a cup..So I’m assuming it’s going to be a vanilla bean frapp and maybe some kind of sour topping but I’m not certain. We all know Starbucks likes to wow us with a sour concoction this time of year(Pauly D voice lol)..

“Here are the only deets I have, the colors come from a red, blue, yellow powder that’s shaken on top of the frapp and in a cup,” reads part of his Instagram caption.

The coffee brand is pretty silent at this time with no comments on any of the rumors. Because Starbucks is quiet, we don’t know the actual flavors or ingredients included in the rumored colorful drink.

However, many observe that this may be a repeat of the summer 2017 Unicorn Frappuccino craze. If you don’t remember the slew of Instagram posts, here’s what that limited sour drink looked like.

The Unicorn drink ran for only a few days in select stores. Customers rushed in to get their share of the Instagrammable Starbucks cup. I guess, on July 10, we’ll see if this Tie-Dye Frap is the real deal and if it will reach the same Unicorn Frap popularity.
