With new Frappuccino flavors like Caramel Waffle Cone and Double Double Fudge Bar, Starbucks has no shortage of dessert-like blended drinks for you to blow five bucks or more on this summer. And while the new Frappuccinos are appropriately decadent and exciting, none of them are quite like a bizarre version of the drink that recently launched in Japan: the "coffee jelly" Frappuccino.
As explained in a report by Eater, the limited-edition drink plays into the country's love for gelatin desserts by layering chunks of espresso roast-flavored jelly, a creamy vanilla custard sauce, frozen coffee, and whipped cream. The resulting four-layer drink -- available at Starbucks locations in Japan starting July 2nd -- is perhaps even more Instagram-worthy than the pink, purple, and orange "secret menu" drinks here in the US.
Unsurprisingly, people are going a little crazy over them, considering a post on Twitter announcing the new beverage has been retweeted more than 28,000 times and liked nearly 40,000 times:
