Thankfully, Starbucks has the perfect solution for that problem, and it's called a frappuccino. You get the combination of that sweet flavor you want and an energy boost from the Frappuccino roast coffee in the drink. Starbucks recently added a couple new frappuccinos to the menu, and these photos of Starbucks' Ultra Caramel Frappuccino will definitely wake up your sweet tooth.

Starbucks announced on Tuesday, May 1 that two new drinks are permanently on the Frappuccino menu. The Ultra Caramel Frappuccino and the Triple Mocha Frappuccino are the two newcomers with flavor twists on classic frappuccino favorites. It's the first time in years that the coffee company has added new, permanent drinks to the Frappuccino menu, and, naturally, frappuccino fans are pretty excited about the news.

If you're wondering what these new sips taste like, the flavors are similar to that of their OG counterparts: the Caramel Frappuccino and the Mocha Frappuccino. The Ultra Caramel Frappuccino and the Triple Mocha Frappuccino take the frappuccino to "the next level" with extra texture, beautiful layers, and tons of flavor," according to Starbucks.

Speaking of "beautiful layers," the Ultra Caramel Frappuccino is as picture-worthy as it is delicious. How delicious is it, you ask? Well, the Ultra Caramel Frappuccino comes complete with five layers of frappuccino goodness. It starts out with a layer of Sweet Cold Brew Whipped Cream, then a layer of caramel sauce, blended coffee caramel Frappuccino, more cold brew whip, and it's all topped with a final layer of caramel sauce.
