I am not a huge fan of sugary drinks but I do love mangos. Knowing that these drinks have mango puree, I will have to try the Mango Pineapple Frappucino out….. maybe with extra puree on top. Let me know what your first impressions are and tag me on your pics(@604chuck) so that I can follow you back.
