When I was driving to work this morning on my way to stop at Starbucks to grab my mobile order I got a notification on my watch. The coffee giant just released a new frappuccino that is available nationwide today. 

I didn't even read the description on the drink but ordered two for my coworkers and me to sample on Facebook Live. It's been a hot minute since we did a live taste test and the new Tie-Dye Frappuccino seemed like the perfect opportunity to start again! Starbucks' website gives the new drink this description: "This deliciously fruity drink is vibrant with red, blue and yellow tie-dye swirls, topped with vanilla whipped cream, and dusted with red, blue and yellow powder. Just like the peak of summer, the Tie-Dye Frappuccino® blended beverage is available for only a few days."

But what does it taste like? When picking up my brightly colored order, I asked the Barista if she had tried the new drink yet. She said she didn't and had no interest in it based on how people are describing the flavor. Apparently, if you like Banana flavor Laffy Taffy, this is the drink for you. Needless to say after hearing what she had to say about the drink, I became less excited to try the new drink. I cannot stand fake banana flavor anything! 

It looks beautiful in the video, right? The two I order not so much!

We have taste tested quite a few of the limited time Frappuccinos and most of us weren't fans!
