First and foremost I must say that I am a Community coffee lover. I drink Community pretty much daily except on the rare weekend where I sleep in and head into town late in the morning. On these days, I treat myself to the pricey guilty pleasure that is my favorite frozen coffee drink: the Starbucks Frappuccino.
Yes, I do believe that Starbucks' coffees are overpriced and overrated. However, I have yet to find a frappuccino that can top Starbucks' offering.
Many competitors have tried to duplicate or better Starbucks' formula, but they've all failed. Only Coffee Beanery's frappalattes come close to matching the frappuccino from Starbucks. McDonald's entered the fray with their own version, called the frappe, but despite being one of the cheapest fraps on the market, the Golden Arches fails due to a lack of consistency in their drinks (primarily due to employee effort).
Starbucks offers a number of frappuccinos, including caramel and java chip among others. My personal favorite is the caramel frappuccino. According to the Starbucks website, the caramel frappuccino has 390 calories of which 130 are from fat. Sure, that's not the healthiest thing in the world, but when it comes to sweet treats, the Starbucks' Caramel Frappuccino is tough to beat.
