Every so often, we all realize that we’ve been using a product completely wrong for years and are mind-blown when we figure out its intended use. This, friends, is another one of those times. The bottled Starbucks Frappuccinos you’ve been drinking straight out of the fridge aren’t called “bottled chilled lattes” or “cold mochas” for a reason. They actually turn into the iced blended Starbucks drinks you’ve come to know and love...if you freeze them.
TikToker @naatalie_lee put this revelation to the test. She heard on TikTok, of course, that you’re actually supposed to put Starbucks’ bottled Frappuccinos in the freezer for them to turn into, you know, a Frappuccino. She tried it with a bottle of the vanilla-flavored Frappuccino by putting it in the freezer for a few hours. When she pulled it out, it still looked like liquid. Once she shook it, though, it turned into a blended iced drink.
Yes, folks! We have looked like straight fools this entire time drinking melted Frapps. In the comments, TikTok users said they were always so confused as to why the drink was called a Frappuccino when they drank it like chilled coffee. Someone who claimed to be a Starbucks employee said they didn’t even know about this.
We all accepted it for what it was and never questioned it. This is definitely not the first and certainly not the last time we’ll do that. It’s fine, though, because now we know about this one!
