The 16 Best Starbucks Frappuccinos Of All Time

Starbucks often rolls out insane new Frappuccino flavors (though we’d argue not often enough anymore!), all vying for a spot in the chain’s permanent rotation. While we write about them a lot individually—as well as all of the chain’s newest drinks—we don’t often show them some love all in one place. Countless dollars and eye-rolls from baristas later, we sampled them all to come up with the true top 16.

You could debate it with us, but you’d only be wasting your breath. Just a note, not all of these are on the current menu, and some are simply around for a limited-time, so be sure to check the menu when you head on your next Starbucks run.

16. Mocha Cookie Crumble

Delicious and soooooo sweet, it’s basically a milkshake that’s acceptable to sip at 7 a.m.


15. Strawberries Crème

It smells like those cupcake dolls from the early ’90s—you know, the ones that looked like cupcakes, until you flipped the liner and transformed them into frosting-bedecked Southern belles—and tastes like a liquified strawberry shortcake.

14. Pumpkin Spice

Nothing says fall is coming quite like the PSL, and in Frappuccino form, it’s more like a blended pumpkin pie à la mode. There’s a reason it’s become the ultimate thirst-quencher (and object of obsession) for basic b’s everywhere.

13. Coffee

The original. It’s like a Frosty that’s been sitting next to an espresso machine, capturing just the tiniest whiff of java flavor.

12. Strawberry Funnel Cake

This one was a summer drink back in 2021. It has real powered sugar–covered funnel cake pieces topping it. A truly sweet treat!

11. Mocha

The gateway drink of caffeine-addled tweens everywhere. You start out hating coffee, then convince yourself a mocha’s okay—and by the end of college, you’re swigging unsweetened iced coffee more than water.

10. Matcha Crème

If you like green tea mochi and matcha-flavored things, you’ll love this smooth, slightly-tropical-but-mostly-sweet treat. If you don’t love the tea, you might find it just a tad too earthy.

9. The Tie-Dye

Though the limited-time Tie-Dye Frappuccino surely was not an easy one for baristas to make, it’s wildly popular on Instagram and strikes the perfect balance between sweet and sweet. All hail!

8. Java Chip

Among chocolate lovers, this drink quickly replaced mocha as the winner of their hearts. However, if you’re big on texture, you may not like the chocolate bits studded throughout the drink (which, fair warning, will invariably get stuck in your teeth).

7. Pistachio

This one has the perfect touch of sweetness, and we can’t help but rank it highly. It has a sprinkle of salted brown-butter topping.

6. Caramel Ribbon Crunch

Who doesn’t love layers of dark caramel swirl embedded into a drink? The crunchy caramelized topping doesn’t hurt either.

5. Caramel

Is it weird that Delish’s tasters rated the coffee flavor stronger in this Frappuccino than the straight-up coffee one? That and the ribbons of buttery caramel topping the drink won us over.

4. Vanilla Bean

As one taster said, “it’s like a vanilla milkshake, only not as heavy!” We’ll drink to that.

3. Chestnut Praline

Sure, it’s a limited-time offering, but just one sip makes you feel like all is right in the world. Like, you know, there’s snow on the ground and a fire going strong and every meal in your near future is chocolate-covered and/or deep-fried. Mmm.

2. Oprah Cinnamon Chai

This one’s more of a #TBT, as it’s a bit hard to find these days. While one taster argued that it was too sweet, fans of cinnamon and ginger loved this drink’s gentle spices. Plus, every cup gives back to charity—and it gives you a chance to channel your inner media mogul.

1. S’mores

This drink is as complex as booking a multi-destination flight online—only 100 times more enjoyable. First, you taste the marshmallow syrup, then the chocolate-espresso milkshake-esque core, and then, if you dip a finger into the whipped cream, you get a smidge of crumbled graham cracker. It’s basically summertime in a cup, and we wish it’d stick around all year long.
