Starbucks is celebrating the Frappuccino’s birthday with the perfect new drink

Starbucks’ famed Frappuccino turns 20 this year, and it’s celebrating with a new, limited edition drink that, naturally, tastes like a birthday cake.

The new drink will be offered in U.S. and Canada locations from March 26 to 30, according to Starbucks. The Birthday Cake Frappuccino is flavored with vanilla bean and hazelnut and is topped with raspberry-infused whipped cream.

Starbucks’ first Frappuccino was sold in 1995 in Los Angeles. Only coffee and mocha flavors were originally available.

“A couple of store managers and I felt there was a huge opportunity for Starbucks,” Dina Campion, a former manager of 10 Starbucks stores in California who now works on the company’s digital team, said in a release.

During the last quarter, Starbucks reported net revenues of $4.8 billion, a 13% surge year-over-year.
