Pudding A La Mode Frappuccino At The Starbucks COFFEE HOUSE
To celebrate the change from the Heisei to the Reiwa Era, Starbucks Japan will release a special menu including a Pudding A La Mode Frappuccino at only 20 locations all over Japan
To celebrate the change from the Heisei to the Reiwa Era, Starbucks Japan looks back onto its own history as a coffee house as well.
Between May 15th and June 18th, 2019 about twenty Starbucks all over Japan will show the COFFEE HOUSE sign above. These Starbucks will carry a special menu inspired by traditional set menus and desserts at coffee houses.
One of these special menu items is the Pudding a la mode Frappuccino (Tall 620 yen). Pudding A La Mode is a popular dessert in Japan normally consisting of pudding, ice cream and fruits, topped with whipped cream and a cherry.
The Pudding a la mode Frappuccino is a new approach on this traditional dessert. Creamy vanilla custard Frappuccino base laced with caramel and mango, apple and a strawberry jelly makes for a scrumptious dessert drink celebrating the new era.
The special Frappuccino is not the only limited item on the menu. They also offer Cold Brew Coffee (Short 330 yen, Tall 370 yen, Grande 410 yen, Venti® 450 yen), Wiener Coffee (Short 340 yen, Tall 380 yen, Grande 420 yen, Venti® 460 yen), Coffee Jelly Cake (440 yen) and Ham and Egg Hot Sandwich (380 yen).
The locations that serve the special Starbucks menu have not been announced yet. If you find one with the special sign, make sure to drop in and get a Pudding a la mode Frappuccino!
