    Starbucks Now Has A Cherry Blossom Frappuccino

    The special flavor — which is bizarrely described as a blend of strawberries and not cherries — is only available until March 20, so get ‘em while they’re...cold!

    So, on Tuesday Starbucks announced a new flavor would be joining its Frappuccino family: cherry blossom.

    According to a Starbucks press release, the drink is "a blend of sweet strawberries and cream with white chocolate, topped with whipped cream and a sprinkle of matcha."

    The Cherry Blossom Frappuccino was inspired by the Japanese tradition of sakura, the Japanese word for the pink flowers that also signify the beginning of spring and are celebrated with festivals worldwide.

    It will be available at participating Starbucks stores in the U.S. until March 20, but a version of the drink has been available in Japan since 2010.

    So far, the reviews appear to be mostly good.

    Cherry Blossom from Starbucks is heaven 😍😋

    Okay @Starbucks, the cherry blossom frapp is TOO GOOD and I wish it was available more often!!! ✨🌸

    Dear Starbucks, I will dearly miss the Butterscotch Frap, but this Cherry Blossom thing is a start to getting back in my good graces 🌸

    But some felt only meh about the new drink.

    Tried that new Cherry Blossom Frapp from Starbucks? Maybe not 👍🏾👍🏾 but DEF 👍🏾 lol. It was good

    Tried the Cherry Blossom frap from Starbucks this morning .. wasn't that great

    Many expressed confusion over a cherry blossom drink made with strawberries.

    @Starbucks What's the difference between the cherry blossom frap and strawberry and cream frap...they taste the same =T

    Starbucks' cherry blossom frap tastes more like strawberry sherbet than its namesake. Still sweet and tasty. 7/10 misleading

    Don't be fooled a cherry blossom at Starbucks is a strawberry frap...

    So Starbucks has a cherry blossom drink...that is strawberry flavored...not cherry flavored... #confused

    Is the Cherry Blossom Frappuccino going to be the Pumpkin Spice Latte of the spring?

    🍓 ¯\_(ツ)_/¯🍒
