You know it's summer when the limited edition items start popping up in newsfeeds and Instagram. Looks like Starbucks across the Treasure Valley continues to dominate the news and this time with a new Summer treat.

Say hello to Starbucks newest frappuccino member, The Serious Strawberry Frappuccino. It's official and today was the debut. I grabbed Mateo and we took a drive to see how the Parkcenter location served it up 🍓

My top was down on the Jeep, it was 80 plus on the Summer scale and it went down quick! This had a Strawberries and Cream taste and I dipped into that like a Tequila shot downtown.

I'm not sure what kind of Treasure Valley buzz you'll receive considering the coffee stand traffic is pretty congested. If I had to rank the top coffee spots it would look a little like this:

  1. Dutch Bros.
  2. Human Bean.
  3. Starbucks
  4. Black Rock Coffee Bar
  5. and all the other one-stop spots like Flying M Coffee House & Java Downtown.

Coffee is a person's safe place. I try to explain to people that hosting a morning show by yourself (still looking for a co-host) and creating phone calls is almost impossible with your listener's coffee intake. There is just something about the mental moment or
"coffee" or "OMG no coffee!!"

Summer is "upon" us and I say that delicately because temperatures keep fluctuating along with wind/rain. That said, it will be in the 90's before you know it and that iced coffee will sound better soon.

The Serious Strawberry Frappuccino is out now and we'd love to know what you think. Make sure to tag us on Instagram @kekeluv @kissboise
