Last weekend, my food-instagrammer-friend told me that there is a 돼지바 (dwaeji-bar) frappuccino in Korean Starbucks, so I decided to go try it out.
Dwaeji-bar Frappuccino Recipe
The Base Drink: Strawberry Cream Frappuccino (Grande)
Recipe: Replace the milk with soy milk, add 6 pumps of strawberry syrup and half of a serving of java chips and mix well. Add some soy whipping cream, the remaining half of the java chips and chocolate drizzle on top.
Price: 7,300 KRW = Strawberry Cream Frappuccino Grande size (6,000 KRW) + Java Chip (600 KRW) + Chocolate Drizzle (600 KRW)
When I ordered it, I got it with the tall size… the bartender warned me that it would be really sweet. I’m sure it had a lot of calories, but it was quite delicious.
Did it actually taste like a 돼지바? I’m not sure. I think I’ll have to eat both at the same time to compare.
After trying out this drink, I found out this drink is part of the many Devil’s Drinks (악마의 음료, Akma ui umryo). It’s called devil’s drinks because they all have very high calories… Here are some of the other drinks:
- Shrek Frappuccino (슈렉 프라푸치노)
- Godiva Frappuccino (고디바 프라푸치노)
- Twix Frappuccino (트윅스 프라푸치노)
- Oreo Frappuccino (오레오 프라푸치노)
- Raspberry Frappuccino (라즈베리 프라푸치노)
- Snicker’s Frappuccino (스니커즈 프라푸치노)
- Green Tea Mint Frappuccino (그린티 민트 프라푸치노)
- Mint Mocha Frappuccino (민트 모카 프라푸치노)
- Banana Cream Pie Frappuccino (바나나 크림 파이 프라푸치노)
Are all of these drinks common outside of Korea as well?
