The first and only flavor of Starbucks Frappuccino to not use coffee is Strawberry Crème, a viscous pink colored beverage made with "real fruit.” What this boils down to is a rich and creamy drink that's best described as gourmet strawberry milk. The beverage starts off strong with a relatively natural composition, including milk, sugar, cream, and strawberry puree being listed as the primary ingredients. From there, they proceed with flavors, lemon juice, carmine color (yes, that's the stuff made from dried cochineal insect extract), corn syrup, and gums (for thickness, of course). The resulting concoction has a thickness that's similar to half and half, a light pink tone, and a sweet strawberry flavor. It's definitely palatable, if you like strawberry flavored products and yearn for a taste that's actually somewhat based on nature. As for the outside, this product lives up to the unquestionably strong Starbucks brand name with a clean label that prominently features the Starbucks logo. However, we do believe that it's a bit confusing to call it a frappuccino but not have coffee….
