Of Frappuccinos and Best Taste Dates

I was at a Starbucks with a friend recently and he made a very interesting observation. The label on the bottle of Frappuccino had a date which read:
“Best Taste By Feb 12 07”

What do they really mean? Are they saying it won’t taste as good after that date, but I should feel free to drink it? How about adding more dates like: “Not so good taste until Apr 16 07”, “Barely potable after Jun 18 07”, “Toxic after December 10 07”.
Just a thought!

  1. LMFAO!! I love your suggestions for the dates on the bottle! I am SOOOOO addicted to these frappuccinos and my refrigerater is always fully stocked. I always wondered about what the, best taste by date meant also. I thought it meant it expired by that date, but I tried one that was about a month past the date and it was fine. Now I’m thinking about them and I think I have to go have one now. LOL!

  2. So I am a year or so late, but I love this drink. It is my morning caffeine fix.

    I look at the date of them on the shelves and find the one furtherest in the future. I also swirl it a bit before buying to see if there is any milky cloud that stays on the glass. I got a pack that did that and they were nasty.

    I haven’t found anything to drink that is better than this product!!

  3. So I am late on this too but I came across this page as a google search for THE EXACT SAME QUESTION!!! LOL! So in response to your original question, my Starbucks Frappuchino Dark Choclate Peppermint Mocha had a Best Taste by date of June 23, 2008…..and I have a whole case of them and they taste great so far!

  4. A little late to this myself…
    I just called the 1-800 number to ask the same question. The operator told me Frappuccinos have a shelf life of nearly 6 years. The “best taste by” date is the date they determined to be just that: Frappuccinos taste best before that date… but, Frappuccinos are entirely safe to drink after that date. So, give ’em an extra shake and enjoy.

  5. So I got worried about EXPIRATION DATES – an order I made through internet – 10 days ago – has not arrived and I thought — will they be safe to drink?

    I love this drink also – do not drink coffee – but had started making Chocolate Milkshakes at home with coffee and discovered how good they were long ago…..imagine you could make your own Frappaccino without much fuss – that would taste as good – but, the storage is important.

    I had something with Almond Milk — a chocolate type drink – do not care for the almond – I loved the smell of coffee from the time when I was in elementary school and people went to A&P and ground their own coffee – and Krogers and just loved the smell of it – the smell better than the taste.

    I wish the price would come down on this – it is expensive — a 12 pack of Cola — same bean – is no longer addictive – IT WAS THE COKE IN THE COKE that people became addiction too – and a former Detective told me once years ago how they used to go into the ice cream parlours — popular in 30’s 40’s in particular — when kids preferred code and milkshakes to BOOZE AND POT — BUT HE SAID – and I really didn’t know it – about chocolcate – he said didn’t they used to call it in these same ice cream parlours — CHOCOLATE DOPE — and that it was – Coke and Coffee and all these addictive items – have danger points

    I keep thinking of CANCER CAUSING AGENTS— they call them carthinogens — an this move about LITTLE HOUSE OF HORRORS this huge plant with FEED ME FEED ME FEED ME — ADDICTION TO DRUGS

    Think about that – you feed something in the body demanding this poison — like alcohol — addiction —- some addictions are harmless?

    How many cops at the Donut Shop – eating donuts and coffee end up looking like PADDY’S PIG WITH POT BELLIES or with diabetes or other srious problems ….

    ADDICTION — moderation is the cure sometimes — why does coffee keep you awake – and I recently found out my “cherry tart cherry capsules” were putting me to sleep — and I mean sleep

    So they worked reducing inflamations when I hurt my knees a miracle — but comes the time they not only put the inflammation and pain to sleep – but you end up — finding out you have been virtually drugged – with Tart Red Cherry Capsules — an I say they work.

    SO — DRINK DRINK DRINK — but know when its no longer because you love the taste of a certain product – BUT ADDICTION TURNS INTO —- TOO MUCH FRAPPUCCINO ..

    LIKE WENDY’S HAMBERGERS – HOW OLD DAVE CHERISHED THE STUFF THAT ONCE MADE HIS CHICKEN ADDICTION — AND HAMBERGERS — THE TASTE YOU WANTED MORE.

    TODAY YOU ORDER A PIZZA AND PAY $30.00 WITH DELIVERY FEES, AND SIDE DISH — AND AFTER YOU IT IT — YOU DO NOT WANT ANOTHER ONE.

    YOU SEE — THEY KNOW WHAT THE OLD BARN YARD CHEMISTS KNOW AND KNEW – WHIC HERBS ARE ADDICTIVE – HEY WHICH ONES ARE POISON — TRY YOU BIBLE FOR THE RECIPIES IN THE GARDEN OF NUTSOS AND FRUITCAKES AND DRUGS

    SECRET OF THE ASSASSINS — then you have the Toad Eaters who taste the King’s wine to be sure not poison?

    LOAD IT UP WITH – TART CHERRY CAPSULES — and — sleeping sickness – in the jungles the disease SLEEPING SICKNESS —

    Encephalitis — caused by drinking filthy water – but WHAT POLLUTED THE STREAMS ON EARTH AND CONSIDER YOUR BODY — once crystal water — now toxic waste….

    witch doctors — AND HEY — THE WATER IS POISONED — not fit for even the Americans to drink – so they say.
    So always look for THE BORGIA IN THE HOUSE – today they come in cans and drinks – same old poison – use with discretion or end up chopping down the Cherry Tree – maybe George Washington knew what he was doing — SEEDS OF LIFE IN SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE FRUITS ET AL — contain CYANIDE — “drinking run and coca cola – working for the Yankee Dollah” —-
