At participating locations, Starbucks is promoting their new Caramel Ribbon Crunch Frappuccino with Frappuccino Happy Hour ending on May 12 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Along with the promotion of the Caramel Ribbon Crunch Frappuccino, all frappuccinos are half-priced.
“This promotion definitely gave me a reason to fulfill my craving for Starbucks,“ sophomore Angel Pineda said.
To start off this “Caramel on Caramel” promotion, Starbucks introduced their “Show your #sipface” on social networks like Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. Each person can personalize or create their own “sipface” for the public to see. If you are a top sipper, then you can be featured on the official Frappuccino website.
“With so many people at Starbucks during happy hour, I learned how important it is to cope with a large amount of people and still having the patience to serve them,” Starbucks employee and junior Cassandra Manio said.
With #sipface trending at the start of the promotion on May 3, Starbucks is planning to introduce their Animal sipface promotion soon.
“Looking through the #sipface’s on Instagram made me want to go to Starbucks and make one of my own. It really does make this promotion worthwhile,” junior Adrianne Wolf said.
