I know everyone is obsessed with the Unicorn Frappuccino, but Starbucks has a lot more to offer in the way of unique drinks… as long as you’re willing to travel. Starbucks features different drinks in different markets, engineered to appeal to local tastes. Here are seven of the most interesting Starbucks drinks from around the world!

1. Dolce Misto – Vietnam

Vietnamese coffee is very sweet and very strong, and Starbucks needed to adapt to keep up. The dolce misto features double strength coffee, ice, and dolce syrup to give an Italian take on the Vietnamese classic of super strong coffee with sweetened, condensed milk.

2. Orange Honeycomb Crunch Frappuccino – Indonesia, Singapore

The Orange Honeycomb Crunch Frap is basically a fun, fancy creamiscle. It has a cream base with orange sauce and honeycomb candy. I’m not even sure what honeycomb candy is, but it sounds good.

3. Lemon-Vanilla Frappuccino – UK, Hungary, Germany, Norway, Sweden

Inspired by the American lemon meringue pie (but not served in America), this Frappuccino combines lemon sauce, vanilla syrup, and lemon drizzle with a cookie and meringue topping.

4. Triple Coffee Jelly Frappuccino – China, Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia

Starbucks was not about to be outdone by bubble tea. Enter BUBBLE COFFEE. The bottom of the cup is filled with coffee jelly, covered with regular coffee-flavored Frap, espresso-infused whipped cream, and coffee-flavored sprinkles. You’re gonna get REAL JAZZED.

5. Iced Algarrobina Latte – Peru

Algarrobina is a thick, molasses-type natural sweetener made from black carob, and it’s mixed into this latte to give the Starbucks drink a Peruvian feel.

6. Lucuma Crème Frappuccino – Peru

Lucuma is a “superfood” native to Peru, and the star of this Peruvian Starbucks drink. A cream-based Frappuccino mixed with Lucuma and whipped cream, the drink has a taste of tangy custard.

7. Mango-Jelly Frappuccino – Japan

Japan always likes to take things to the next level, so this Frappuccino has mango, peach, strawberry, and orange flavors all together mixed with peach jelly and whipped cream.
