I’ll be the first to admit that I have a coffee addiction, and sometimes heading to an actual Starbucks store isn’t always feasible.
That’s why I make sure to keep my fridge stocked full of Starbucks Bottled Frappuccinos, for those caffeine emergencies!
I remember the days when there were only a few flavors to choose from.
Now that there are well over a dozen, I’m here to elaborate on my favorites and the best ways to drink them!
17 Best Bottled Starbucks Frappuccinos
Each of the vacuum-sealed bottles contains a creamy blend of coffee and their most popular flavors, served ready to drink.
1. Chocolate Churro Frappuccino
Whenever I’m in Mexico City, I make sure to get my churros with chocolate sauce and coffee on the side.
This bottled Frappuccino doesn’t quite replicate it, but it comes pretty darn close.
It tastes more chocolate and cinnamon, with less of a deep-fried dough flavor.
At 45 grams of sugar in a bottle, it’s definitely sweet enough to be considered a dessert, too!
I love this one on ice, and if I’m feeling really indulgent, with a bit of whip on top.
2. Brown Butter Caramel Frappuccino
I absolutely love any coffee with brown sugar flavors, and this is what I found with the Brown Butter Caramel Frappuccino.
Don’t expect much butteriness here in terms of flavor. More "brown sugar" than "brown butter."
It tastes like ribbons of buttery caramel have been blended with a bit of brown sugar and cold coffee - I’m in heaven.
I love the "splash of cold brew coffee" Starbucks bottled Frappuccino flavors, where an added boost of cold Starbucks brewed coffee is added.
I still love the taste of coffee, after all.
3. Mocha Frappuccino
The first time I tried a bottled Mocha Frappuccino was on a little 1-hour road trip to San Francisco.
I loved them so much that I drank 2, and by the time we arrived to SF I was ready to run up and down even the steepest of hills.
Anyway, my point is that the Mocha Frappuccino is smooth, rich, chocolatey, with the perfect amount of coffee to balance it out.
Made with Starbucks coffee with mocha sauce and sweetener, it’s simple and always hits the spot.
4. Caramelized Vanilla Honey (Splash of Cold Brew) Frappuccino
This is one of the more unique Starbucks bottled Frappuccino flavors. The vanilla is creamy without being very dairy-forward.
The caramelized honey tastes sweet in a natural way, and a splash of cold brew balances everything nicely.
There is a little sea salt in here, creating that sweet and savory combo that creates a vibrant punch of flavor in each sip.
It is a bit on the sweet side for me, and I personally think it’d be perfect if I added just a shot of espresso to it.
5. Dulce de Leche Frappuccino
"Dulce de Leche" is sweetened condensed milk that is simmered until thick.
Starbucks' bottled Frappuccino dulce de leche flavor nails those sweet, almost-smoky dairy notes and texture.
The Dulce de Leche Frappuccino tastes almost like flavored milk to me, however.
This one is on the lighter side for caffeine content at only 60 milligrams per bottle.
6. Vanilla Frappuccino
I don’t even remember the first time I tried the Vanilla Frappuccino as it’s been a part of my life for well over a decade.
I’m not even normally much of a vanilla fan, and I LOVE these!
So much so, that I have practically banned them from my home because I just can’t gain the self-control to not replace my water intake with them.
This one is ready-to-drink, brewed Starbucks coffee with reduced-fat milk, sweetener, and divine natural vanilla flavor.
Ideal for keeping caffeine consumption low, the 9.5oz bottle contains only 45mg of caffeine.
7. Salted Dark Chocolate Frappuccino
As if I didn’t already love the Mocha Frappuccino enough, here comes this absolutely incredible alternative.
The Salted Dark Chocolate Frappuccino is a beautifully well-rounded drink with the bitterness of the dark chocolate completemented by a bit of sweetness and rounded out with the right amount of sea salt.
In comparison to the Mocha, I find this one a bit more complex, whereas the Mocha is a bit one-dimensional and sweet.
8. Mocha Coconut Frappuccino
One day, a few years back, I ran out of cream and only had coconut milk in the fridge.
I tried mixing in a spoonful, and my life was forever changed for the better.
The Mocha Coconut Frappuccino takes me back to that, and also tastes a bit of an Almond Joy with that chocolate added in.
I will say that the coconut tastes on the artificial side, but not so much that it deters me from indulging.
9. Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino
I absolutely love everything pumpkin spice, so it was no surprise that I enjoyed the Pumpkin Spice Bottled Frappuccino when it came out almost 10 years ago!
While it’s a nice
Fall coffee drink, it is still quite a bit different from the Pumpkin Spice drinks I’ve gotten from actual Sbux stores.
For one, it doesn’t have actual pumpkin in it.
Rather, it has a stronger nutmeg and ginger flavor, with a notable sugary-sweet flavor.
Combined with the high milk content, it tastes almost like a French Toast coffee drink!
10. Caramel Frappuccino
The Caramel Frappuccino flavor is very sweet and caramel-y, with a slight coffee flavor.
I would recommend drinking it on ice, as (at least for me) it’s an almost too-sweet taste.
For me, it tastes almost like caramel-flavored milk with a slightly thinner consistency.
11. Vanilla Light Frappuccino
This is my preferred Vanilla Frappuccino, even though I do quite like the original, too.
The Vanilla Light Frappuccino contains about half the calories and sugar of the regular version.
However, I don’t find it light in flavor, and it balances vanilla and coffee tastes to where it’s neither too bitter nor too sweet.
It does have a slight ‘chemical’ flavor, but I still like the taste.
12. Hazelnut Tiramisu Frappuccino
The Hazelnut Tiramisu Frappuccino is a luxurious blend of the classic Italian dessert flavor with a rich, nuttiness.
If there is any flavor of the bottled frappuccinos from Starbucks that tastes like its name, it’s this one.
I was actually surprised at how on-point the taste was, though while it’s one of my favorites it is a bit rich to drink more than one bottle at a time.
The coffee taste blends seamlessly here, considering tiramisu already has notable coffee flavors.
13. Mocha Light Frappuccino
This "light" version of the Mocha Frappuccino has the same rich chocolaty and coffee taste as the original.
However, there is no mistaking the artificial sweet flavor that gives away low-calorie alternatives.
While it has half the calories and sugar of the original, I truly prefer the taste of the regular Mocha Frappuccino.
14. S'mores Frappuccino
S’mores is a classic dessert that instantly invokes nostalgia in me.
The ingredients are usually chocolate, marshmallow, and graham cracker, with a slight smokiness that comes from roasting them over the fire.
While it’s not quite spot-on, it’s similar with a notable cinnamon taste, and a milky marshmallow flavor.
However, I do feel like it’s missing a bit of a chocolatey aspect.
Overall, this is a nice, easy-to-drink beverage, but it’s not my favorite.
15. Coffee Frappuccino
The Coffee Frappuccino is easily one of those ‘daily drinkers’ for me.
It’s a nice creamy, sweet cold coffee that I enjoy bringing along when I am simply too busy to turn on the coffee machine.
This bottle contains what's essentially a double shot of espresso with milk, cream, and sweetener.
I really love this one, with its stronger coffee profile and higher caffeine content!
16. Toasted White Chocolate Frappuccino
I’m going to put it out there: I’m not normally a fan of anything white chocolate.
However, the Toasted White Chocolate Frappuccino tastes like a cozy bottle of nutty/vanilla bean, sweet white chocolate, with notable coffee notes.
I do find this quite sweet, but thanks to the complementary flavors, it’s not too saccharine or one-dimensional.
This bottled Frappuccino is based on the seasonal flavor available during the holidays.
17. Caramel Flan Frappuccino
The third member of Starbucks' bottled Frappuccino Passport Series, this Spanish flan-inspired drink is essentially dessert in a glass.
It features a much stronger caramel flavor than the Caramel Frappuccino and is very rich and buttery.
This is one of my favorites as well, as I find the caramel, milkiness, and caramel are all perfectly-proportioned.
There is just a slightly ‘burnt’ taste to it, which is a nod to the flan aspect.
Discontinued Starbucks Bottled Drinks We Miss!
While some Starbucks flavors are discontinued, the good news is that many of them can be made easily at home!
Both of these are almond milk bottled Frappuccinos, which were made dairy free with almond milk.
It's unclear why Starbucks decided to stop making these ones, but it’s likely due to popularity (or lack thereof).
Best Ways To Drink Starbucks Bottled Frappuccinos
Straight From The Refrigerator
Just Grab And Go. Once it is nice and cold in the fridge or chilled from a store, just pop the top off and enjoy these Frappuccinos.
Convenience is key here, and the best part is I don’t have to wait in line to drink these bottled frappuccinos.
And no barista is going to get my order wrong.
Pour Over Ice
If I have a little more time on your hands and want to be fancy, I like to fill a glass with ice and top it with a Starbucks Frappuccino in a bottle.
Another way I love drinking it is on ice with a splash of my favorite coffee liquor for a boozy drink with caffeine.
Blend with Milk and Ice
For more of an authentic Starbucks Frappuccino feel, I’ll pop open a bottle and pour it into my blender with ice and some milk, and blend until frothy and icy.
Top with whipped cream (optional, but highly recommended).
