Starbucks has a new drink that will “predict” your future
Are your pretty skeptical about tarot cards/anything that involves fortune telling? Well, what if it involved a really, really cute caffeinated drink? Hear me out with this one. Starbucks just released a delicious looking Frappuccino that includes a different array of candy gems that will “predict” your future. Okay, so, they probably won’t actually give you any legit insight into your life — but there’s really no good reason to ever turn down a sparkly drink.
Starbucks’ new line is called “Crystal Ball Frappuccino,” and it’s made from — per the company’s rep — “crème-based Frappuccino infused with peach flavor and turquoise sparkles that create an enchanting marbling effect.” Are you almost sold? Now enter: the magic candy gems. Each drink comes sprinkled with sparkly bits of wonder, colored to represent a different life prediction. The blue candy gems promise adventure, green gems symbolize good luck, and purple gems are packed with magic (which allegedly includes “wonder, enchantment…and owls”).
Sooooo basically we can all pretend we’re living our best lives at Hogwarts while we sip our magical drinks and smugly twirl our wands by a crackling fire.
The added bonus is that neither you nor your barista know what gems you’ll get ahead of time. According to The Today Show, the candies come in opaque packaging, so it really will be a surprise when your future is revealed (so many fingers crossed for the enchantment one).
Side note: if you’re currently rolling your eyes about this whole thing, I implore you to look at the drinks themselves. The cuteness factors definitely trumps any hardcore magic skepticism you’ve been harboring. Also, there’s no way you’re going to feel morning crankiness when you’re sipping down this goddess of a concoction.
The drinks are only available for a limited time (now through March 26) so run, don’t walk, to pick up a cup. No one will ever have to know that you got your tarot card reading done at Starbucks.
