No matter what sweet treat you might be yearning for, there’s a decent chance that you can satisfy your craving at Starbucks. For example, if some rich, creamy strawberry cheesecake sounds heavenly, you could head to your nearest coffee shop and order a beverage that hits all the right notes.
But don’t look for it on the menu. Even if you ask your barista for a strawberry cheesecake frappuccino, they might just give you a puzzled look.
Start With Topping On The Bottom
Technically, you start with a Strawberries and Cream Frappuccino, which has been a longstanding staple of the coffee drink chain. Then, ask for some graham cracker topping in the bottom of the cup. From there, Starbucks aficionados have slightly different advice on how to attain the ideal cheesecake flavor. For instance, @stinaxmaria says to add dried strawberries and cinnamon dolce in her tweet about her favorite iced coffee drinks.

And TikTok user @starbucksisbae suggests adding strawberry inclusions and a pump of hazelnut blended into the frap.

Either way, you can see why it is becoming a favorite for many Starbucks customers, such as @PkStarstorm5, who tweeted this scrumptious-looking pic.
“My strawberry cheesecake frap,” the Twitter user posted, “I’m so proud of it.”

The Secret’s Not Really A Secret
While this is not on any Starbucks menu in the U.S., this frappucino was available at many locations around the world a few years ago. It was a new menu item in Japan as far back as 2013, in Australia back in 2015, and made it as far as the Philippines and Thailand, as well, as you can see in this Facebook post from 2015.
Who knows? Maybe if enough customers request this sweet beverage, it will become a regular in the States, as well.
