The Starbucks Mocha is one of the coffee chain’s most popular drinks. Considering that its two main ingredients are chocolate and coffee, we can’t say we’re surprised. We haven’t been this excited since peanut butter and chocolate got together. And Bennifer round two.
The drink, officially known as a Caffè Mocha debuted in 1987, long before the now beloved Frappuccinos took over. All of them start with the same basic ingredients: – Espresso – Mocha syrup – Milk – Whipped cream
The Iced Caffè Mocha is is just the cold version of the standard one. So if you tend to forget about your coffee until it’s cold, you can order this and be one step ahead for the first time in five years. The iced version also comes with whipped cream.
This Frappuccino is like combining chocolate chips and coffee, but not quite as rich as a chocolate milkshake. But it has caffeine. Well, there goes that nap. We really need to stop giving our cats coffee.
Before there was the season of the PSL, there was the Peppermint Mocha. It debuted in 2002 and you can think of it as a Thin Mint in liquid form. There we go with the blender again.
