Brits had their first taste of frappéed cappuccinos in 1999, and to commemorate this watershed, all 700 U.K. locations will introduce a drink made with yogurt and ice and no coffee base, just bananas or “red berries.” In some ways, it’s a retread of a seasonal Frap offered to Starbucks customers around the Mediterranean last summer, advertised of course as made with real Greek yogurt, and in any event, the chain plans to grow its smoothies and yogurt drinks program in the states as well.
