Just when you thought we had reached pumpkin spice latte levels, another caffeinated beverage comes along to take the top spot. We genuinely thought that this season only had room for one intense blended drink but we were so wrong.
No no- there are no canines involved in this new move. Your pugs are safe. Allow us to introduce you to the Beast Mode Frappuccino.
Yes, you read that correctly, Starbucks have official turned beast mode on, and now we don’t know what to do with ourselves.
Do you drink it? Do you try and lift it?
Actually, if you were feeling the need for some added protein in your life then you’re in luck because that’s exactly what has been added to this beverage.
“The new blended beverage, as unique as its creator, is a double mocha Frappuccino with a hint of mint and cream and just enough protein powder to unleash your inner Beast Mode.
It’s topped with whipped cream, then finished with a purple berry drizzle and a sprinkle of matcha.”
The creator of the Beast Mode Frapuccino is Marshawn Lynch, who plays for the Seattle Seahawks in the US. He’s a running back, FYI, and he has an interesting thing about Skittles.
Thankfully (we think) there are no Skittles included. However, despite the lack of Skittles, he is a big fan of his creation:
"I’d drink this before a workout," Lynch said in a statement. "…I'm all 'bout that."
Starbucks will donate 24 cents — Lynch's jersey number — to the Fam 1st Family Foundation for every Beast Mode sold. He co-founded the foundation in 2011 to mentor children on education, literacy and self-esteem.
We're always happy to caffeinate for a cause.
Unfortunately, no word has come as to whether the Irish Starbucks will be unleashing the Beast Mode of the nation, but if they do we feel like it could be very interesting.
