Of Frappuccinos and Best Taste Dates

General

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.

    1. C, Thank you so much for your response. This is the most helpful response I’ve seen since I started to research the question. I have a whole 12 pack case that I purchased that got hidden behind some other boxes in my pantry. The best buy date is March 6, 2017. We’re almost 3 years past that point! They look totally normal and haven’t been subjected to intense heat or cold, just stored in the pantry. I so want to go ahead and drink them. Waste is a terrible thing!

      1. Starr, I’m in the same boat! Found 3 bottles behind stuff in basement of Mocha Frappucino with “best taste date” of Aug 28 2017, so not quite 3 years past. Waste IS a terrible thing, did you drink yours and are you still with us?

  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” —-
