When the “Pokémon GO” app was released in the summer of 2016, Starbucks shortly after came out with a sweet, fruity drink inspired by the game to generate hype around it. Living in Canada, the drink was never released here, and since then has been discontinued in the United States. But I really wanted to try it! Being both a Starbucks and Pokémon fan, I loved the collaboration and was disappointed that it never made its way into Canada.
However, many of Starbucks’ discontinued and fan-inspired beverages end up on the infamous “Secret Menu“, a place where coffee lover’s imaginations run wild and the possibilities are endless. After researching exactly what makes up a “Pokémon GO” Frappucino®, I headed to my local Starbucks and placed my order.
If you want to try ordering this drink, ask for—a venti vanilla bean Frappuccino® with 3 pumps of raspberry syrup and 2 scoops of berries. If ordering a tall or grande size, ask for only 2 pumps or raspberry syrup and 1 scoop of berries.
The verdict? This drink was absolutely scrumptious! The sugary sweetness of the vanilla bean powder mixed with the tartness of the berries delivered a sweet and fruity beverage, perfect for a hot day or an afternoon pick-me-up. Give it a try—you won’t be disappointed!
