SEATTLE — Starbucks is offering a new twist on an old holiday gift that it promises is “too tasty to regift.”

It’s a fruitcake-inspired frozen coffee drink.

“The new beverage is inspired by holiday fruitcake with its colorful candied fruits, nuts and spices,” the company website said. “Starbucks version starts with a Hazelnut Creme Frappuccino blended beverage with dried fruit added and spiced with cinnamon, topped with whipped cream and an ornate topping of caramel dots and a sprinkle of matcha.”

It’s only available through Sunday. The coffee chain will even throw in a free gift for Starbucks Rewards members who try the festive frozen concoction on Saturday.

“On National Ugly Sweater Day, December 16, Starbucks Rewards members can receive an ugly sweater beverage cozy as a gift with the purchase of a Fruitcake Frappuccino,” the company said.
