Posted on

We recently asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to tell us about the most awesome international Starbucks menu items they've ever tried. Here's what they said...

1. American Cherry Pie Frappuccino, Japan

What it is: A basic vanilla creme Frappuccino, swirled with cherry compote and topped with whipped cream and crumbled pie crust. The best part, though? The legit pie crust lid you have to stick your straw through.

2. Kenya Coffee Lemonade Fizzio, Taiwan

What it is: Basically iced coffee mixed with carbonated lemonade. It may sound weird, but the Starbucks website describes the taste as ~magical~.

4. Mooncakes, Hong Kong

What it is: Every year, Starbucks releases its own version of mooncakes for the Chinese Moon Festival – they come in a variety of flavours inspired by their bestselling drinks, including green tea and caramel coffee.

5. Lemon Refresher, Mexico

Instagram: @tuki_infinit

What it is: Essentially just a lemonade-esque juice drink, but the real magic happens when you order it with coconut milk instead of water and it becomes a lemon meringue pie in liquid form.

6. Tropical Colada Frappuccino, China

Instagram: @_cheryl______

What it is: Basically a nonalcoholic Piña Colada in Frappuccino form – a delicious blend of pineapple-y, coconut-y goodness.


7. Sakura Latte and Frappuccino, Korea

What it is: Every year, in celebration of Sakura season, Starbucks stores around Asia release their Sakura latte and Frappuccino – a blend of cherry blossom flavour and matcha, topped with pink maple-flavoured whipped cream, pink rice crackers, and shavings of pink chocolate that resemble the cherry blossoms.


8. Peanut Butter Pretzel Pie, Lebanon

Instagram: @iam_ilyn

What it is: A treat reminiscent of chocolate cheesecake, but with added peanut butter flavour and topped with pretzel pieces and caramel drizzle.

9. Christmas Cookie Latte, Singapore

Instagram: @ssshalala

What it is: Obviously, it only comes out when red cup season rolls around, but it tastes exactly like dipping an iced sugar cookie into a latte – complete with the cookie crumbs sprinkled on top.

10. Coffee Jelly Frappuccino, Philippines

Instagram: @nehsvaldvia

What it is: Just like your regular old coffee Frappuccino, but filled to the brim with coffee-flavoured jelly pieces.

11. Burnt Caramel Latte, Switzerland

Instagram: @verusilhanova

What it is: A regular Starbucks latte with burnt caramel syrup – sweet, creamy, and just a little bit nutty.


12. Chocolate Hazelnut Frappuccino, Peru

Instagram: @eli_ltm04

What it is: Two words: Nutella. Frappuccino. That's all!


13. Cotton Candy Frappuccino, Canada

14. Purple Yam Cheesecake, Philippines

Instagram: @yay

What it is: A cheesecake made with purple yams (otherwise known as ube), which are used in a variety of popular desserts in the Philippines. It's almost too pretty to eat. Almost.

15. Maple Macchiato, Kuwait

Instagram: @jorrry

What it is: Just like a caramel macchiato, but with maple syrup instead of caramel, which sounds heavenly. (Pssst – you can also get it in Canada. Obviously.)


16. Crushed Orange Frappuccino, Japan

Instagram: @ccwu

What it is: A refreshing creme blend mixed with sweet and sour orange pieces – basically an orange creamsicle in a cup.
