My husband brought me back the limited edition Cherry Blossom Frappuccino from Starbucks, that’s only available until tomorrow, March 20, 2016. 🙂 There’s no cherry or even a cherry flavor in the drink (it’s just a strawberry and cream shake with a sprinkle of matcha green tea powder to represent the tree) but it’s so beautiful it’s definitely worth trying.
One thing I miss about living in Japan (although I only lived there as a kid) is seeing rows and rows of beautiful of vibrant sakura trees that blossom around March / April every year. When you see lovely pink pedals dancing in the air and drunken people picnicking and partying at a park (an event called “hanami,” or flower viewing), you know spring has finally arrived!
Haha I love that it wasn’t even cherry flavoured. That’s too funny 😛 I bet strawberry was good all the same though!
Hi Elle! I know — there’s absolutely on “cherry blossom” in this drink! LOL. I’m glad I was aware of it beforehand; otherwise I would have been a very disappointed customer!
But I’m happy that Starbucks acknowledged and celebrated the true Japanese celebration here in the States!
Thanks for your comment! 🙂
