Cheesecake Flavored Frappuccinos Are Happening At Starbucks

Nothing hits the spot on a long day quite like a Frappuccino from Starbucks, but has our go-to for 4pm boost gone a little too out of the box with their new flavor?
Strawberry Cheesecake Frappuccinos are now available in Australia. Frappe lovers can try the new flavor in stores now, but only for a limited time. And only in Australia, which is just not fair.
Described as "ice-cold creaminess swirled with our signature strawberry puree and a crunchy layer of cookie crumble," the beverage is topped off with "cheesecake-inspired whipped cream, swirls of strawberry sauce and a few shakes of more cookie crumbles."
The new flavor gained Internet fame after a Reddit user posted a photograph of the bottle, which is simply labeled "Cheese Flavored Syrup."
Horrified users chimed in immediately, fearful that the brand was actually planning on introducing cheesy drinks. Can you blame them? Doritos-flavored Mountain Dew is an actual, albeit disgusting, thing.
Thankfully, a spokesperson for the Starbucks clarified that the cheesy label was short for cheesecake. There will not be any Skinny Cheddar Lattes in our future.
There aren't plans to bring the new flavor to the States anytime soon, but Aussie lovers can rest easy. The chain recently released another Australian favorite, the not-quite-a-latte Flat White.
So, would you try a Strawberry Cheesecake Frappe?
