For fans of coffee drinks that have little to no coffee, Starbucks has revealed six new Frappuccino flavors. The limited-edition sugary drinks are called Fan Flavors, and each one sounds like a serious sugar high to us. (A grande limited-edition Frap is $4.75.)
1. Red velvet cake creme.
A grande is 480 calories and contains 70 grams of sugar.

According to Starbucks: “A confectionery-inspired blend of chocolaty chips, mocha sauce, raspberry and vanilla syrup, topped with whipped cream. Perfectly sweet and velvety smooth.”
2. Cotton candy creme
A grande is 430 calories and 66 grams of sugar. Which, to be fair, is less than I’d think.
According to Starbucks: “Take our standard Vanilla Bean Creme Frappuccino, add raspberry syrup, blend it together, finish with whipped cream and boom, you have a round trip ticket to magic land...”
3. Cinnamon roll
A grande of this bad boy weighs in at 510 calories and 85 grams of sugar.
According to Starbucks: “Cinnamon dolce syrup blended together with coffee, white chocolate mocha sauce and vanilla bean, topped with whipped cream and a cinnamon dolce sprinkle. Sweet and spicy ... that’s how we roll.”
4. Lemon bar creme
A grande is 350 calories and 55 grams of sugar – the lightest option of all the new flavors.
According to Starbucks: “A sweet and sour mix that brings lemonade and vanilla together. Finished perfectly with whipped cream and a caramel sugar sprinkle. When life gives you lemons, sip this ... upside-down?”
5. Caramel cocoa cluster
A grande is 470 calories and 75 grams of sugar.
According to Starbucks: “Toffee nut syrup, blended with coffee then topped with a dark caramel sauce, whipped cream and a mocha drizzle. More than a classic flavor combo it’s a flavor collision of chocolate, nuts and caramel.”
6. Cupcake creme
A grande is 420 calories and 63 grams of sugar. (More than an actual cupcake, I think.)
According to Starbucks: “Start with the Vanilla Bean Creme Frappuccino, add hazelnut syrup, blend together and finish with whipped cream. A sip of cake flavor in every bite.”
