S'mores Frappuccinos are half price today at Starbucks

S'mores Frappuccinos of all sizes are half off at participating Starbucks through May 10. Starbucks announced the arrival of the S'mores Frappuccino on its menu earlier this week.

Now available in drink form. Starbucks' new S'mores frapuccino is half off Friday, May 1, 2015.

When Starbucks announced the impending arrival of the S'mores Frappuccino on April 28th, my heart skipped a beat. I've held a small grudge against Starbucks since they pulled my beloved mocha coconut frappuccino off the menu a few years ago. Now they are poised to make it up to me. Well played, Starbucks.

 Starbucks Frappuccino Happy Hour starts today!

The Frappuccino Happy Hour event runs today through 5/10 from 3-5pm local time at participating Starbucks locations, and the 50% discount applies to all frappuccinos, all sizes.

A "secret menu" version has been listed on for quite awhile, but it looks like Starbucks is doing the official version differently - and rightly so.

According to the press release: "The layered beverage starts with marshmallow-infused whipped cream and milk chocolate sauce; adds a creamy blend of graham, coffee, milk and ice; and is finished off with marshmallow whipped cream and a graham cracker crumble."

Don't get me wrong, the new Caramel Ribbon Crunch Frappuccino also looks tasty, but really, we all know the S'mores Frappuccino is the star of this show.

The message is clear: Get thee to a Starbucks, post haste!

I think I'll put a "do not disturb" note on my calendar now, thank you very much. You know where to find me.

Dear Reader,

About a year ago, I happened upon this statement about the Monitor in the Harvard Business Review – under the charming heading of “do things that don’t interest you”:

“Many things that end up” being meaningful, writes social scientist Joseph Grenny, “have come from conference workshops, articles, or online videos that began as a chore and ended with an insight. My work in Kenya, for example, was heavily influenced by a Christian Science Monitor article I had forced myself to read 10 years earlier. Sometimes, we call things ‘boring’ simply because they lie outside the box we are currently in.”

If you were to come up with a punchline to a joke about the Monitor, that would probably be it. We’re seen as being global, fair, insightful, and perhaps a bit too earnest. We’re the bran muffin of journalism.

But you know what? We change lives. And I’m going to argue that we change lives precisely because we force open that too-small box that most human beings think they live in.

The Monitor is a peculiar little publication that’s hard for the world to figure out. We’re run by a church, but we’re not only for church members and we’re not about converting people. We’re known as being fair even as the world becomes as polarized as at any time since the newspaper’s founding in 1908.

We have a mission beyond circulation, we want to bridge divides. We’re about kicking down the door of thought everywhere and saying, “You are bigger and more capable than you realize. And we can prove it.”

If you’re looking for bran muffin journalism, you can subscribe to the Monitor for $15. You’ll get the Monitor Weekly magazine, the Monitor Daily email, and unlimited access to CSMonitor.com.
