OMFG: Starbucks Is Serving Birthday Cake Frappuccinos For Five Days

Who says you can't have your cake and eat drink it, too?

Not Starbucks: In celebration of the Frappuccino's 20th anniversary, the coffee giant is adding "Birthday Cake" to its flavor roster.

The limited-edition Frappuccino -- described by a Starbucks representative as a "creamy blend of vanilla bean and hazelnut, topped with a special raspberry-infused whipped cream” -- will be available for only five days between March 26 and March 30.

When Starbucks officially launched the Frappuccino in 1995, it was only available in two flavors: coffee and mocha.

Today, there are over 12 Frappuccino flavors on the menu permanently, plus an array of seasonal and special-edition flavors added throughout the year.

Interestingly, the drink wasn't Starbucks' own from the start: The recipe originally belonged to a Boston coffee shop called The Coffee Connection, which Starbucks bought in 1994.

After tweaking the recipe, Starbucks relaunched the drink as its own.

Here's to 20 (more) years of sweet, sweet frozen goodness.

Drink up!
