There’s just something about strawberries that says summer. This sweet-smelling member of the rose family ripens to its juicy perfection each year just in time for shorts weather – making it the perfect accompaniment to afternoon picnics and beach days. Starbucks strawberry beverages have been a customer favourite ever since the original Strawberry Crème Frappuccino® blended beverage joined the menu in 2002, and we’ll show you how their delicious flavour has been creatively showcased in Starbucks beverages around the world ever since. If strawberries are your jam, this story is for you!
