From cold-brew iced coffee to mini Frappuccinos, the coffee chain is pulling out all the stops for summer. And now comes another sweet announcement: the introduction of six new frappuccino flavors!

Dubbed “fan flavors,” the new blended beverages are Red Velvet Cake, Cotton Candy, Cinnamon Roll, Lemon Bar, Caramel Cocoa Cluster and Cupcake, reports the Chicago Tribune.
The sugary drinks — which perfectly complement Starbucks’ other summertime flavor, S’mores — are spins on some of their classic counterparts. For example, the Cotton Candy Frappuccino is a standard Vanilla Bean Creme Frappuccino with raspberry syrup added, while the Cupcake Frappuccino adds hazelnut syrup to the Vanilla Bean Creme Frappuccino.
Although they may not count as “skinny,” the new flavors do range in calorie count. The grande sizes can be up to 510 calories (based on the company’s standard recipes with whipped cream and whole milk) for the Cinnamon Roll Frappuccino, while the lowest-calorie option is the Lemon Bar Frappuccino at 350 calories.
