Starbucks announces ‘Frappuccino Light’

Filed under: New Product — Tags: — @ June 29, 2004

Coffee giant Starbucks will launch a new ‘Frappuccino Light’ drink line tomorrow. The new line of Frappuccino (an iced coffee) uses Splenda instead of sugar. However, don’t believe any “low-carb” claims–the new drinks still pack 20-60 carbs (depending on flavor and size). The light moniker stems from a 30-40% reduction in the number of calories.

As part of the product launch, Starbucks will be offering free samples of the Frappuccino Light beverages in all of its North American stores.
