At Japanese Starbucks, the Sakura Are Already in Full Bloom with New Cherry Blossom Products Galore
The Sakura Fuwari Berry Frappuccino (さくらふわりベリーフラペチーノ) is a frappuccino made with raspberry pannacotta and topped with whipped cream, vanilla and sakura cake crumbs, and tiny bits of freeze-dried strawberry. The Sakura Fuwari Berry Milk Latte (さくらふわりベリーミルクラテ), on the other hand, is essentially strawberry milk (milk + strawberry syrup) but topped with the same cake crumb and strawberry topping.
Hot drinks during sakura season will come in special paper cups decorated with cherry blossoms, too!
The first series of products is being called "Sakura no Ibuki" (桜の息吹), which means "A Breath of Sakura," evoking the anticipation of the onset of spring. Anyone with a penchant for pastels will have a hard time keeping their hands off these cute items, with pink and blue designs that look like cherry blossoms in front of a pale blue sky. (Available at Japanese Starbucks locations from Feb. 17, 2021.)
Of course, if you value convenience over ultra-stylish Starbucks locations, you're in luck.
