I really didn't know what to expect from this famous, adored secret menu creation. I've still never tried Universal's version of butterbeer, so I my assumptions were based off half-remembered descriptions from Prisoner of Azkaban. The dominant flavor is definitely the toffee nut syrup -- it lends the whole thing a nice toasted quality and helps cut some of the caramel's sweetness. Even though this Frappuccino was basically just syrups and cream, it somehow went down the smoothest. I even kept drinking it after I'd taken my mandatory 5-10 sips! If this is what those young wizards were drinking in Hogsmeade, I think I finally understand why Harry risked everything to get to Three Broomsticks.
