Starbucks launches banana and chocolate cream Frappuccinos, in Japan

Starbucks Japan has launched a banana smoothie, a Frappuccino hybrid with fresh bananas and brownie crumbles. And we're still trying to get over bakeable Kit Kats! 

The new Banana and Chocolate Cream Frappuccino is a chocolate Frappuccino with fresh bananas blended in. It's topped with whipped cream, pieces of chocolate brownie and a chocolate sauce. 

There's also a caramel version with bananas and a caramel Frappuccino, whipped cream, white chocolate brownie crumbles and caramel sauce. 

And if you're wondering how you're going to get a little bit of everything in each sip, these Frappuccinos come with extra wide straws

The Frappuccino launched April 16 in Japan and will be available through May 11. Prices for a 12-ounce drink start at $5.91. 

Past Starbucks Japan Frappuccino flavors to envy include a chocolate pretzel mocha for Valentine's Day, chocolate strawberry and creamy vanilla with lemony swirl.
