Starbucks launches Tie-Dye Frappuccino

(CBS 58) -- Starbucks is launching a special tie-dye Frappuccino to help beat the heat of summer. 

The vibrant drink is available starting July 10 and lasting only for a few days at participating stores in the United States and Canada. 

The icy blended beverage is made with a tropical Crème Frappuccino with dashes of powder in  yellow, red and blue (which gets its color from red beet, turmeric, and spirulina) that mix to create the tie-dye effect. The beverage is topped with whipped cream and a final dusting of colored powder.

Some Twitter users have compared the flavor to banana Laffy Taffy, a pina colada, or the candy sticks that come with a Fun Dip pack. 

“It’s bright and colorful and fun and should bring a smile to your face,” the drink's creator Paloma Carrington-Bataller said in a press release. “Perfect for the heydays of summer.”
