This holiday season, Starbucks is going Beast Mode with the arrival of a new special blended concoction that is the epic handiwork of Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch.
Yes, there is double the mocha. No, there are no Skittles.
The Beast Mode Frappuccino – from which a portion of sales will support Lynch’s Fam 1st Family Foundation – is “a double mocha Frappucino with a hint of mint and cream and just enough protein powder to unleash your inner Beast Mode,” according to Starbucks. It comes topped with whipped cream, a purple “berry drizzle,” and a sprinkling of matcha.
“I’d drink this before a workout,” Lynch said in a statement. “…I’m all ’bout that.”
The Beast Mode Frappuccino will be available at participating stores in Oakland, California and Washington state from Oct. 22 through the end of football season.
Starbucks will donate 24 cents – Lynch’s number – to the Fam 1st Family Foundation for every Beast Mode sold, up to $100,000, and has kicked off the promotion with a $24,000 donation. Lynch co-founded the foundation in 2011 to mentor children on education, literacy and self-esteem.
