Setouchi Lemon Cake
FrappuccinoThe "Setouchi Lemon Cake Frappuccino" is a refreshing lemon flavor and aroma. The "Lemon Cake", which was developed to pair well with the Frappuccino, is blended with milk and lemon peel sauce. The whipped cream is topped with lemon-flavored icing sauce and pearl sugar. The "crunchy" icing is the charm point of the lemon cake, and its mouth feel and flavor are expressed in the whipped cream.
The cake is also garnished with a crunchy freeze-dried lemon peel to accentuate the bitterness of the lemon zest. Setouchi lemons from the Setouchi region, which are known for their high sugar content and gentle acidity, are used to make up 75% of the lemon ingredients. Only tall sizes are available, priced at 678 yen for To go and 690 yen for in-store use (both including tax).
Actual TastingFrom the image of lemon cake, I imagined it to be quite sweet, but when I actually drank it, I found it refreshing and easy to drink! You can enjoy the pleasant tartness and sweetness of the lemon flavor. It has a nostalgic taste that reminds me of returning home from club activities in my school days.
The lemon icing sauce topping is juicy, and the addition of crunchy pearl sugar gives it the texture of lemon cake. And the key ingredient is the "lemon peel. It does a really good job! The citrusy freshness and bitterness that it leaves on the palate adds depth to the flavor. The bitterness gives it a more lemon-like taste! Lemon lovers can't get enough of this.
Since it is already complete, the first cup should be drunk as is if possible! In addition, the developer recommends the following customizations
Add citrus pulp (+110 yen): Citrus fruits go well with each other, adding even more fruity flavor.
・ Add honey (free): Adds a gorgeous sweetness that goes well with lemon.
The new Starbucks Frappé "Setouchi Lemon Cake Frappuccino" is perfect for the coming hot and humid season. Recommended for a refreshing drink!
