Remember the other day when we told you there was a supposive leak from Starbucks stores stating that they would become a Pokestop? Well turns out that leak was a little more than a rumor, and we will soon be drinking a Pokemon Go themed drink at our favorite location.
“People across the country have been playing Pokémon GO since its release and Starbucks customers and partners (employees) are among them. To join in with the fun and excitement, starting today (December 8) at 11 a.m. PST, approximately 7,800 Starbucks® stores in the U.S. will begin to turn into PokéStops or Gyms. ” said Starbucks on their blog.
“By locating a Starbucks® store within Pokémon GO, players will discover the Pokémon GO Frappuccino® blended beverage. The Pokémon GO Frappuccino® starts with a Vanilla Bean Frappuccino® blended beverage and raspberry syrup blended with freeze-dried whole blackberries and topped with whipped cream. It’s the perfect treat for any Pokémon Trainer on the go.” said Starbucks on their blog.
This will surely make catching Pokemon in the cold much easier and is a great business move for the coffee chain as well. Hopefully we will eventually get some Poke-themed cookies from them!
