Most of the goofy treats sound delicious. Maybe I'll try a Coconut Frap. The Cold Stone Creamery shake sounds great too.

I wouldn't call a coconut mocha frappuccino "goofy"...believe me, I hear waaaay goofier drinks ordered at my bux on a daily basis.

Are the Mocha Coconut Frappuccinos coming back this summer?! Now those are worth going off my diet for (...once).

I wish they'd bring back MALT..
What I wouldn't do for a Mocha Malt Frappuccino (using the old recipe, of course, and not the new diluted watery recipe...)

Our store was just talking about the Mocha Malt Frappuccino. It was so good! All Time Favorite Drink? Cinnamon Spice Mocha (original cinnamon syrup). Wouldn't mind to see that one come back!

Also, mango coconut smoothies. They had them last summer at Barnes & Noble cafes. They're amazing.

Ugh at least that nasty banana purée isn't back. I personally hate the mocha coconut. I also hated the blueberries and creme. And the orange creme. With the orange syrup that made everything taste like tang. I did love the blackberry green tea frappucino. I loved the tangerine frappucino juice blend and the pomegranate one too (still have my shirt!) I also remember the dark cherry mocha and "honey" latte. Can anyone else name some old failed or past favorite drinks?

The coconut is hardly new. Ever few years they bring it back, and it's actually pretty good. So if coconut if back this year, where's the malt powder? LOL
@MYK... that banana puree was so disappointing. I love chocolate banana coffee drinks, and that just never cut it. A banana flavored syrup would be much better, and blending a real banana doesn't do it right either.
The summer we had the banana was the frap hell year. Banana, coconut, malt, black berry, an advertised varaiation of caramel banana... it was only a few sauces/syrups, but they took an entire menu board up promoting them. It was crazy that year.
