    I wonder if the barista will know what I mean if I ask for a short Frappuccino; probably, right? I wonder why they didn’t go with that name, considering that they already have “short” as a coffee size.

    Wow…I’m all a tingle.

    What’s the appeal of this? For kids?

    • Brad says:

      Kids, or people who want a small treat, or lastly, people like me who like Frappuccinos but don’t like the obscene amount of empty calories.

  4. Colin says:

    Sounds like a great idea to me. With things like the frappuccino that are SUCH a sugar bomb, I wouldn’t mind having a really small size as an option if I want to go to Starbucks. I don’t really need *that* much.

    I love this idea. I love a frappuccino once in a while but I often don’t even finish the tall. It’s more filling than a normal coffee. I will totally order the mini.

    I do have kids too and my son likes the caramel (DECAF!) and never finishes a tall so this will be right up his alley.

    Since fraps are one of the most time consuming drinks to prepare, I’m sure baristas everywhere are jumping with joy at this.

      Would this help? This is just a new ratio to remember.

      Like I have seen them overmake before and just pour the leftovers out as samples. I can’t imagine this helps.
      Use half a pump instead of a full pump. The time savings.

    I wonder when they will debut a trenta frappacino.

    I’m not sure I understand the point of this. The “mini” is 10oz, while the “tall” is 12oz, so it’s only a couple of sips smaller. All the other sizes have 4 ounces in between them, so doing the 8oz “short” would’ve made more sense here.

    Also, my “mini” Frappuccino today was $3.75, while the “tall” would’ve been $3.95, so there’s no real value proposition.

  9. Jonathan Wayne says:

    It kind of makes sense but it really doesn’t. Pricing would really help also.

  10. Bryce says:

    Not a bad idea.

    My only issue with Frappucinos is that they’re impossible to finish. Halfway through you’re left with just ice particles that you can’t drink. Double blending helps a little bit though.

    This is to make people feel better about drinking a sugar bomb, they can tell themselves “But at least I ordered the mini!”

    I could never bring myself to buy one, insufficiently masculine.
