Anyone order this? Regularly?

    What's in it??

    Edit: it's a vanilla bean frap with raspberry syrup. Sounds blech.

      Gosh, how about Red Velvet Cotton Candy?
      I don't know which disgusts me more -- red velvet latte or cotton candy drink.

        Red velvet because of the colour, cotton candy because of the flavor.

        No, but coffee flavored cotton candy sounds intriguing.

          Agreed.

          I've always wondered why flavored cotton candy isn't more of a "thing".

            I love traditional cotton candy, when flavors are added I find it takes away from the purity of the sugar taste. Given that, if I had to choose a flavor, it would be coconut. I could see people going for a hot chocolate flavor too. Hmmm maybe a "thing" has been born.

          Dear lord! That sounds atrocious...<runs in opposite direction>

            No, but it sounds like a marketing ploy to get small kids hooked early on the Starbucks brand.
