Starbucks Singapore had rolled out their new range of Frappuccino blended beverages, and the highlight would probably be the Shiok-ah-ccino, which was also somehow launched in celebration of local heritage. Basically, it was a vanilla cream blended with chocolate chips and topped with whipped cream, waffle crisp and a white chocolate topper.

But I guess it turned out more of a flop than a star, for the beverage tasted just like a cheap Cookies and Cream drink. It probably would have scored a better feedback if they had considered other more nostalgic flavours like red bean, mint chocolate chip or Neapolitan. And guess they had never learnt from their previous beverages that chocolate toppers (and now a piece of waffle crisp too) were not a good addition to a drink that would usually be served with a lid.

Well, try again next year.
