Starbucks Selling New 'Christmas Tree' Drink For Only 5 Days

The peppermint mocha-flavored Frapp is topped with green whipped cream and candy "ornaments", so it looks just as festive as it tastes. Over that goes a caramel drizzle and candied cranberries, and the whole thing is capped with a strawberry tree "topper".

The Christmas Tree Frappuccino is available in stores across the United States and Canada for a limited time. If you still aren't convinced though, there are plenty of rave reviews on Twitter to convince you.

The Peppermint Mocha Crème Frappuccino base was delicious as ever, and the Matcha whipped cream was surprisingly subtle. People have already flocked to the coffee supplier to test out the sweet treat, and it seems to be a serious hit.
