Starbucks Japan has been serving up special edition drinks for years, and the trend continues for Summer 2019. This time, the chain is initiating a retro theme in select stores, bolstered by a wide release of a special edition “Pudding à la Mode” Frappuccino drink.

Taking cues from old cafés, select Starbucks Japan locations will roll out throwback-indebted interior design as part of a monthlong initiative. Though the company hasn’t debuted a complete look at the vintage-inspired stores or accompanying events, it has revealed a classy retro-style “COFFEE HOUSE” sign, along with the Pudding à la Mode Frappuccino.

Taking cues from Japan’s heritage of sweet summertime treats, the Frappucino blends caramel sauce with mango, apple and strawberry puddings, creating a full-bodied, saccharine beverage that’s as tasty as it is colorful. Syrupy pickled red cherries top off the drink alongside whipped cream for an extra-sugary finish.

Nearly all Japanese Starbucks locations will offer the Pudding à la Mode Frappucino from May 15 until June 18, with a Tall size weighing in at ¥620 JPY (approximately $5.50 USD). Check out the retro signage below.

Elsewhere in Japan, Tokyo’s Starbucks Reserve Roastery recruited BEAMS for premium travelware.
